I found this for sale and have concluded that I am going to pass on it and let someone else have this gem.

I like it except for the front end. It sticks out too far makes it look unbalanced. Unique, would be fun to drive in parades etc. A lot of work at a good price.

He did an awful lot of good work on it. I can see where a 12 yo boy would be dying to buy it.

Looks like he was trying to build a "rat fink".

 

I don't necessarily like it, but I agree, it looks like it's priced very well for the quality of work that was done.

A really cool touch for the straight pipes and the over-the-top air-breather on top of the motor.

 

I would agree - it would be fun for a 12yr old - or change the pulleys to slow it down and give it to an 8 year old.

I think Cool!  RED!   Work seems very nice, not just thrown on stuff.  Good price too for being "Different".    Be neat at Portland for a day, then it would be too dirty to be neat after that one day, ha!

Would be a nice "butt buggy" for at shows, price is not bad, probably more work and parts put into it then that.

I wonder about that air filter over the air intake over the blower shroud restricts air flow?

As posted earlier, really good deal though.
