    To those that don't know what the RC166 is:

    1966 Honda GP bike. 250cc inline six, individual carbs, redline 20000RPM ish, 65hp, 7 speed gearbox. That will probably sell you on watching the video

    Edit: It's in Japanese without subtitles though
    2006 Honda CB919

    I know the guy who resurrected it after it sat in the Science Centre. There's a cool vintage Cycle Canada article about it on his website.

    https://nickkempca.wordpress.com/the-honda-rc-166/

    He also built a 300hp hill climb bike based off a Benelli 6 cylinder engine in the 70's that ran on 100% nitro.
