    • I'm impressed to Hell that the rider is still holding it up, seeing as the half-ton of cylinder on the other side is still attached!

    • It's mostly aluminum save for the cylinder sleeve. My R90 jugs didn't weigh that much ;-) I've had them on/off the bike twice in the past week.

    • No one has mentioned that's a pre 1970 Slash 2 Beemer.

    • The crazy part is how much argument over fork alignment goes on about airheads. Meanwhile this guy has a set of clip ons half way down the fork tubes.

    • I suspect this was a special one off competition machine built to set a record. A book of BMW history might have the actual story. The factory did experiment with super chargers.

    • What is it? A rotary engine?

    • nope, a 500cc flat four Konig racing speedboat engine.

    • my one has seen better days...
