Ha! Perhaps we should. I was prob being a sook at 5k....6'd do it.
To be honest I'm considering parting it out and keeping the motor for a single seat buggy project.
To sidetrack a little I've been playing around with hi perf electric power for a while now. Built a 14 kW downhill bike a while ago and am/was planning on a 350hp DC li-poly driveline for the buggy.
The d/h bike properly gave my RMZ450 a real run for its money, a mate also has a 12 sec elec street car.
This sh#ts fast, quiet, can take a relentless hiding and needs near no maintenance.

How's this though.....the 350hp motor -$3k, controller-$5k.....battery- $12k!!!, weighs 100kg, 4 mins run time and will be buggered in a year.
So am thinking of transplanting the SV donk into the buggy till battery technology catches up.
Am at a kinda cross roads with exactly what to do. It's almost all aftermarket parts and might have some bits that'd be good to get. All is in near mint cond and the motor could do 200hp at 14psi ....dunno!

Itv is getting off top a bit but hey...it’s bikes, so that’s all good.
If you like podcasts - have a listen to the last 40 mins or so of the below. The guy worked for Tesla and built some elec bikes - very, very funny....

Hey thanks for that mate and am a big podcast fan actually, will check it out fer sure.
Have you come across 'love and radio'? Don't worry bout the name.... awesome podcast station with some hardcore relevant stories, they had a bit to do with 'S-town' l believe.
Meant to mention before too, with a bit of envy, about some of the super class riding country you have down over Bass strait there.... driven a bit of it, mostly in pissy hire cars but will 2 wheel it oneday definitely.
The SV was something I had to do, an idea that wouldn't leave me alone, got front cover of Rapid Bikes a few years ago, is massively impractical and won't sell for much but time n money can be done in sillier ways l suppose!
The Super Duke is prob the sort of ride I'll move back to when I get back into it.
Cheers for the bike chat n take it easy mate :thumbsup:
