    Great post Gian. Being an avid lifelong motorcyclist and an amateur machinist, this guy really impresses me. That is an air cooled, V-8 engine that he made himself. That guy is a craftsman.

    Here's a video of the engine: https://youtu.be/ZsV7pAKmFtc

    He has a lot of talent for sure and that is a nice looking motorcycle. That is a very nice engine and it isn't really noisy,

    Wow! That thing sounded great.

    Well it's not a Harley, but it is still nice.

    And it was interesting he went with a shaft drive over a simple chain.
