Well, one would certainly want to believe that so they could sleep at night.

In completely different news my neighbor is a large man with a shaved head covered in multicolor flame tattoos. We call him Ghost Rider.

I think it's more of an art thing rather than a safety thing. He was showing what he could do with metal. I doubt he's going to ride it much.

BRAPBRAPBRAPBRAP instead of MAAAYBE tuning for efficiency. I just hope no one else dies with him in The Crash.

This is the real world equivalent of those GTA crash youtubes.

He's putting in some new lifter cam thingies. Supposed to provide for more tdc pause for .000009 seconds of ignition or something

I stand corrected. It's a shovel-head not a pan- head engine. He explained the difference, I still wouldn't ride it

That... is not what you want to see in an engine, tell you what.

The copper coil is an oil cooler. I guess he blew a lifter thingie riding it yesterday. The engine is a 1970 something pan- head he rebuilt.

OK, I hereby name that thing DEATHCYCLE3000. Is that just a copper worm for oil cooling?!

Now he's putting an S&S 1200 in the thing. It's either going to boil the highway or look lie the ending scene from Easy Rider.

I might, but I wouldn't want to be responsible for cleaning up the oil puddles on the runway. ;)

If Harley made an airplane would you fly in it?

The guy had me mill off the front brake rotor (because front brakes are for sissies, I guess) and shave down the hubs so they'd fit between the forks. He fabricated the fork mounts even skinnier than whatever the standard is. He's getting it powder coated in a couple weeks, he just needs to make a few more doo-dads for the engine mounts.

Guy built the frame and the tank from scratch. The chain tensioner is a skateboard wheel. The suicide shifter knob is off an old door. The sissy bar is all hand made
