    A magnesium throttle tube!?!




    The year: 3466








    The mechanized winners of WW4 roam the dry dunes of the desolate earth. Nothing has lived here for eons, no life of any kind. The lonely winds blow the sand of the ruins of civilization, slowly exposing the last remaining proof that humans were ever here at all....














    One damn magnesium throttle tube for a Buell (sigh).

    I think using magnesium for the throttle tube was a badass cool idea. The 1/6 idea sounds good in my dreams, but I think Silverrider would be the only one who could truly appreciate that one.

    Keep us posted on the interesting work!


    I have vision of SR riding his EBR through streets of Soviet Russia to an abandoned warehouse where the Buran is rotting away. As the secret police surround the building, SR comes crashing through some 3rd story windows, pinning the bike at 11k RPM heading back to the USA to bring mike lowery his exotic metals.
