Very cool bike.  Love those old inline 4's.  Might have the lamest exhaust I've ever seen though.

Would love to own one of these.

Very cool.  Sounds like a truck when he revs it, hah.

Did he say it took him 10-15 years to finish?  Rebuilding it I guess?  I woulda gotten a new paintjob somewhere in that time.

New paint would have ruined the value, some things need to stay as they are, that thing is beautiful...  ;D

This reminds me of the Race Across America (or something like that) the wife and I rode with (by - they were really going slow) coming back from Laughlin, NV.   They were all 1928 or older...we stopped to eat lunch and the support guys were there.  In talking with them, the race left from Kitty Hawk, NC and finishes in Santa Monica, CA.  The support guys said they pretty much had to rebuild at least 2 of them every night.  haha  And this guy took 15 years?

Looking at the finish on this bike kind of reminds me of Wolfraider's bike.

Agreed. Looks awesome, sounds awesome. Loved the horn and its position.
