Huge amount of Fabrication skills there. The skills to build that frame are second to none.

Swingarm looks longer than a stretched "Busa and where is Larry with his tape measure????

It may just be the picture but it looks about three feet longer than the Ducati in the Background.

Nice bike for midgits....
Ironically enough, Gurney came up with the recumbent riding position as a way to fit his 6' 4" frame onto a sportbike. The low seat is really good for shorter riders, but the reach to the bars is so far, you need long arms if you want to lean against the back of the seat at all.

This poor guy loved the bike but was almost folded in half to reach the bars:

I assumed wrongly that the H-D Gator was already in production b/c Dan proposed it at least 5 years ago !:confused: But looks like it's an on going project . Would work well at a tractor pull contest .
