I really appreciate the effort and engineering behind that build! However, am I the only one who thinks that the poor old Bullet didn't deserve that? What about that thump, what about that magnificent engine, what about the happy feeling you get when you ride? Oh my Gee.  :-X

When we're in the year 2150 or something, I might start developing some feelings for the electric conversion on a Royal Enfield  ;)

I won't.
I'll be 98, if alive.  ;)

I hear you, JVS. I love the sound of that thump. It's what a motorbike is s'posed to sound like.

On the other hand, I get a kick out of anyone taking a bike and doing something crazy with it, especially when it's 'on the cheap' as it looks like this sort of was.

It's worth noting here that my dad sent me a picture of a hybrid car a long time ago. It was an electric something-er-other with a gas-powered generator on the back of it to recharge the batteries. ;)
