What I want to know is the dyno numbers. Mostly torque values.

T-28 is sweet

The prop on the T-28 is magnificent. It should be mounted on the front of the cruiser!

Oh, and wear tennies when riding the bike. Those engines often caught fire on start up, while running, and at shutdown!

Not to mention two really hot cylinders and one freaking hot cylinder, the way it is mounted on the bike.

Not to worry, given the size of the gas tank, it's gonna run out of gas before it has a chance to get hot.

Regardless of their shortcomings, these bikes are really cool looking and you have to give credit to the builders.

I would rather be working on retirement! This work stuff gets in the way of life. I can at least think about a road trip. Its obvious which handles better, That pane would make a neat addition to the toy shed!

That is almost as cool as the Chrysler concept bike of a few years ago The Tomahawk wasa Viper V-10 based motorcycle, a 500 horsepower engine with four wheels beneath it. I think ten of them were sold..WHEW, I wouldn't want to ride either!

There was a real nice bike by Jesse James on the cover of one of the motorcycle rags (can't remember which) with a radial engine. Looked a little nicer than this one. I'll take the plane over either one though...

Jesse James' bike is on the cover of Cycle World. He's got the engine turned 90 degrees from this one. I can't even imagine the torque that puts on the bike when you twist the throttle.
