I don't think so. It might be sporting a Rune tank, but the frame, engine, and side grills look decidedly from an 1800....

take a look at Steve's bike at the top of the page...

I'm sure it would have been easier and cheaper just to buy a Rune, and almost as exclusive. :)

Having said that, it mostly looks well done.

Quite a nice job and it's a "one of"! Too bad there is not a kit!

Question..... so does it nowhave two gas tanks???? Or a funky trunk under the seat?
After a second look... I think the tank is a dummy!

Oh yeah, I'm sure its all 1800, it just has a VTX style tail light, kinda looks like a shadow rear fender (I'm sure its custom) it just reminded me of a Valk too. :)

Very well done. I, too, would like to see other angles to see how they did the front end.

It's - uhhh - interesting. In a very cool way.

I'd love to know some of the details. But - why someone would put that much effort into this?

Why not? Everyone has their own interests that they put time and money in, if this is what floats his boat, more power to him.:clapper:

Why did Wilbur and Orvile look at a bird and say they could make a machine to do that?

Why did the first guy to put a motor on a bicycle do it?

Why did Honda "improve" on the Goldwing?

Why do we hang shiny chrome things on our bikes?

Nobody knows what sparks us to look at something and say "I can make it better", sometimes it really is better, and sometimes it's only better for the person doing the improvements.

Personally it's a cool looking bike, and the guy did one awesome job of morphing an 1800 into a cruiser.
