I was reading the latest issue of retro bike a month or so back, and there was a story in there about this crazy kiwi who did an amazing job of putting a suby 2.5l turbo boxer engine into a bike frame (and got it road-worthy/registered). My thought was that Rubine wasn't one of a kind after all.... there's at least one other creative crazy kiwi visionary bike builder...

Trace, I would call that, Creative skill.
not many people like that now. but have known a few.
I don't like car motors in bikes like, real bike motors.
I was looking at some beautiful Norton feather bed frames with, Vincent Black Shadow motor's & old Triumph pre unit motors in them, beautiful builds.
