I'm not sure.
Someone might want the engine :

Gearbox would be nice for my excelsior. Could probably flog the engine for a tidy sum too. Who the hell builds a 350 chop anyway? And what a silly rake angle, even for a chop!

That's what I love about the old bike scene...just when you think you've seen it all...anyone remember the Douglas Dragonfour, two Douglas flat twins stuck together in a Dragonfly chassis? ( The Classic Motorcycle Dec 1990) Hats off to these folk (especially the ones who finish the project) We need more weirdness!

It's good to be different but different aint always good.

Yep, and just because it's possible, doesn't mean you should do it.

On the other hand, Odgie's highly improbable Project Zenster is an example of just what can be achieved if you have the talent :

Readers of the magazine produced by them lot 'over there' get to read the Great Man's description of the build.

That looks bloody nice, though i'm curious how he MOT'd it with no front brake

The MOT says nothing about front and rear brakes - you just have to have two independent braking systems - they can both be on the back (or front) wheel.
