I'll give the design and build team this, at least it's a fairly original concept.  I was getting pretty tired of the fat rear with tall skinny front choppers the custom builders were making.

Like many things, if it was "better", it'd be commonplace by now. Sure, fine, cool mechanical arts concept, but there... I've spent all the mental energy on it I care to. :)

Rolls Royce produced the O-300 flat six under license from Continental in the UK, in the sixties.
