    As you and I are well aware of functional is not always pretty. I can see a huge difference in performance design of the box there though. I had 73 Challenger 340. 4bbl, pistol grip 4spd, dual exhaust. The hood scoops were non functional from the factory but had block off plates that could be removed. I removed them and turned the air cleaner lid over and it made quite a noticeable difference in power getting fresh cold air in.
    Where did they put the generator after the box install?

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    Back to the Broughs....

    I mean, I know they are coveted and all that, but anyone who pays sky-high money for this probably needs a new hobby:

    I bet every one of them will bring profit in the next sale.

    How does that relate? The bike was being sent back to the owner in Japan and the shop that sold it to him was going to restore it back to it's original condition. There's really been no further news about it since finding it.

    The condition of the bikes are pretty much the same - stuffed.

    Except you could probably get the HD running with less hassle

    Harley bough the guy a new bike and put the tsunami bike in their museum. There is an article about it but I can't find it at the moment because I am lazy.
