    Hemmingway wrote about that form of racing in one of his novels.

    I think the rider is supposed to maintain contact with that bar behind the motorcycle. Front tire on against a roller

    While that thing is a cool idea (I'm thinking on builidng something like that myself), the fact that it is a fixie is a no-no for me :confused:

    I put drop bars on it from one of these. They are REALLY wide drop bars, and they are fun with the small front wheel.

    Nah...

    You got brakes...
    The pedals are the same...
    The cranks are from one set...
    You have insignificant amount of pink/bright yellow/neon green colored elements on it...
    Your seat is too nice...

    Sadly - it won't be the "Second Beast"

    High speeds. The front fork is set with positive castor like a bascart so the wheel stays true and straight for stability. The motorcycle is to reduce drag and pull the bike in to it's draft, so they can reach speeds of 60+ mph. I think the record is around 115mph. Bicycle version of the Bonneville salt flat board tracker motorcycles.

    It is a Dodge Viper road bike that was a promotional item for the Dodge Viper. It was meant for a Dodge Viper owner to have so it went along with their car. It was from 2006.
