read an article in motorcyclist about a guy that reproduced a honda racebike from the 70's 100%.
Amazing skill required.

The world needs more people like that. This man has done more than most people ever do... realize his dream. He's obviously very well off financially... probably an engineer and a damn good one.

Personally, I hope Ferrari buys it and puts in on display in the front lobby of it's Europeon headquarters... maybe he should contact Barrett Jackson and see what they can do for him... something that awesome should be given the maximum visibility possible.

I'll raise a toast to that man tonight.

Yes, that was bad-***.

"There's a Ferrari in my living room"

Loved when he revved it, and it sounded like a Ferrari...
