I saw this bike at the SEMA show last week. I tired to get as many close up details as I could. It only has 15 miles on it and is planned to go on auction this week through Mecum Auctions.

The video makes it sound like the bike is running. No HD 1200 motor sounds like that! In fact it has been taken from the video of my RR 1000, at the Rocker Box show, at Road America, also on You Tube. Listen for yourself. Brian

Hahahahahaha . . . . And to think . . . I was still trying to figure out how that RR1200 started itself. That was 3 years before Buells offered the optional remote start kit.

Court, long time no see. Well as they pan around the bike they show the dash and the tach needle is not moving, at all. Glad that you committed, Brian

Anybody else thinking that bike would look great going down the salt at Bonneville? The AMA record for PP-P is 151 mph. I bet we could beat that with the return of the Elves!

What do you think it is going to sell for at auction? Could we pool enough money to buy it? Looks like the auction is in January, am I reading that right?

I would volunteer to prep the bike and get it out to the salt if anyone else would be interested?

Sounds like a good idea Dan of course some would compare this to turning a real 63 split window Corvette into a drag car. I have no idea what this bike would go for.
