Rip the engine out of an Aston Martin and shove it on a motorcycle frame

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Forget it BM ~ LL will never allow it (at least not until she has upped your life insurance)

Not as grand as an Aston Martin but a friend of mine built his own bike once, he used a 2.3L Volvo engine and called it The Beast. He got pulled over by a copper once (well on many occasions) and the copper described it as like putting a rocket on a can of baked beans  ;D

Prototype for the Tipsymobile mk 2? Take a caravan and whack in a Renault 1.4 litre turbo engine.
