    Car engines in motorcycles are always cool. [8D]

    If they call a sheep a ram.
    And a donkey an ass.
    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?

    well yes but

    it will make about one foot pound of torque per cubic inch

    just like most every other four stroke engine out there

    "this ain't no jap bike"

    Yes it is. It's a 1969 Honda CB750. No getting around that. I don't have any thing I would "tirade" him for it either. LOL
    All that said it is kinda neat.

    not when they make 60 hp, rev out to 4000 rpm and weigh only slightly less than the car they came out of. Sure it makes 200+ft lbs of torque (maybe), but when it weighs over 1000 lbs it needs that just to get rolling. Honestly - what does a t bucket weigh? 1,300 lbs with motor?

    as a side note: I hate the way the boss hoss looks and handles, but the only redeming factor it has is riding one is like getting hit from behind by a 747 at takeoff speed. I liken the expirence to riding a guided missle more than to riding a motorcycle - it don't turn for shit but it will make sure you hit whatever's in front of you fast and accurate.

    is the forum eating posts again?

    the jist of it was that I don't think those weigh 1000 pounds and certainly not just 300 pounds less than a tbucket

    but even at 1000 pounds it wouldn't be a slouch all the way up to whatever speed those 60 ponies could attain

    and could probably run direct drive or a two speed at the most

    Hack,
    Is the John Deere inline four bike a myth? Or a reality?

    Or just something painted up from an excelsior or something?

    I love the old inline four bikes.

    I just like lookin at the damn thing, I mean, it's just friggin cool. I remember seeing a dark maroon one that had a real classic look, like it was meant to be that way.
