    Without the plastic maybe not in shape Bumblebee, but what I liked about driving my Busa have become more Busa, and like nothing else to drive. I know it is not in everyones taste, but it has become a true joy on twisted roads and track, where I have met many who liked the Busa engine, but not...

    Lots of good ideas Berlin, and I see there is a lot more to come for in the engine, but mine is a work in progress and I first wanted to see how far I could come with the chassis. I did however change the original 4200 grams battery to a 740 grams Aliant battery.

My bike is a far from finished work in progress and these pics are in a early a bit rough stage before I put lights on it and took it to the streets. Another thing that...
