    this should put a smile on any gear heads face. If I had the garage space I would have this for garage art, or set it in the front yard to upset the neighbors. talk about wow factor.

    I don't really have a cb550 lol. enjoy.

    I initially ignored "Alvis Leonides" because it didn't mean anything to me, but that is the manufacturer of the engine. Possibly from a domestic aircraft

    Buddy had one of those long ago, 6 cylinder Corvair powered with the engine mounted behind us on skinny little struts
    was the scariest thing I ever rode in, never been so glad to return to a dock.

    Wouldn't be the first time someone shoehorned one of these engines into a bike (perhaps not as big as the one in the kijiji link).
