Default What do you guys think of this?

This is the new Redneck Engineering Mutant Monoshock chassis that we're now offering. This particular bike was built by RE and is pictured here at the V-Twin Expo out in Cincinnati last month. What do you guys think?

Pretty sweet. I'm guessing the fuel goes in the frame.

No that little sliver under the backbone is actually like a 1.5 gallon cell. They're also offer it with a 3.2 gallon tank that sits on top of the backbone that would be a little more practical. Chain slap could be an issue at the pivot maybe, but there was about 4.5-5 inches there, so I would think the chain would have to be a little slack for it to happen.

I think it's sweet. I can clearly see why others may not like it, but I think it looks outstanding. How's the ride? How's the price?

I also think it's cool.

On a sidenote -

Two-Bit: I take it that's your bike in your sig - what kind of frame is that? I just bought a black & red 2007 Firebolt and that chop has got me drooling!
