The frame is a Manx Norton Featherbed Replica made specially for Harley & Buell engines. They do a very nice job.

I am afraid to inquire HOW MUCH!!!

I might just have to talk to Pete Hill about an EVO engine/5sp/belt drive for one of those things. Put an Ohlins frot end from a Yamaha R-1 with Ohlins rears and that would be a very fun ride!

Is the line from the tach drive to the frame rail a crank vent?

No kickstarter and no mag and (gasp) a REAL electronic ignition!

It can't be fast or cool......

It runs to a "breather" box / oil trap under the seat hump, you can make it out in the rear shot of the seat.

Does the frame come with MSO paperwork so you can register it in the states?
