HOLY SHIT !!!!!
My GOD!! :D
It's called an Amazonas, built in Brazil but I think they're out of production. Note the air-cooled VW engine. ;)
Dual Blower with a quad intake. wOOt!!!
Clueless, I've never seen a bike like this one. Sure is different/ I like.
wonder what kind of milage it gets?
Hey guys, am I really the only one here that realizes this is a joke bike?Surely everyone can see the blowers have no drive and the carbs are bolted to flat plates.
Here's another one I thought of. Can you guess what makes this one so cool
to me? Still looking for the elusive monster bike pics to show you.
i just want one because it's gotta lot of shiny, i dunno why everyone else wants one...
ugh. im not one for cruisers but this is just horrible. even though its fake... :?
id take it... i can only imagine how many heads i would turn with a bike like that
Yes, but can you imagine how many people would fall over laughing their ass off, seeing someone actually riding this ghettocycle ?
What!?!?!? No one going to mention all the NOS bottles on the back of the
thing? I wonder how aerodynamic this sucker is once you get it up to 200
MPH. (Hell, probably not too good at 60MPH)
Pretty damn hilarious though.
anyone notice what looks like a radiator up front?
is it possible that underneath all that crap someone actually stuffed a SBC in there?
I knew it was a joke. I'm just sayin. One hell of an expensive joke though.
Stuffed may not be the right word. Look closely and under all the shit
you'll see a Boss Hoss which a limited production bike powered by SBC's and
yeah i just saw a few hoss' at the Motorcycle Show in NYC....those are pretty damn cool.
i've seen a few of those before... and one thing i've never understood
about them is this
how the hell do they stay upright?
what i mean is, you are goin along, and you slam the throttle, the torque twists the bike, you flip over on your side, your leg is trapped underneath the side and you are dragged screaming along till you hit the nearby gas station and erupt in a fireball (cause you know if that happens, you'll be close to a gas station, it's just a fact)
so........ yeah, how do they stay up?
hell, my truck has around 245 ft-lbs (or is it lbs-ft? i know there's a diff.) and it'll rock the truck pretty damn hard if i stomp it, so i just don't get it
The reason it stays upright is due to a little know scientific principle know as PFM. Actually it's one of the principles that allows aircraft to fly also.
would this PFM be similar to what happens when a situation becomes FUBAR,
or is it just an obscure science of flight...
cause i just abused Google trying to find that stupid thing...
i think that in this one, PEBCAK
well, i was thinking about that last night...bout how it would ever move.
I dunno what pfm is, but even if somehow that principle kept the bike up,
it wouldnt move anyway, the rear tire would be in flames the minutes you
twitched the throttle.
My Dad's friend had a Hoss with a 502 block on it...in it. Well, he hardly ever rode it because the thing would either flip from the torque, or incinerate the tire. He did ride it, barely, but he had to feather the throttle.
And that was only a single, stock 502. That bike has what looks like 2 bb engines, with...he...twin blowers on each. Plus numerous NOS bottles. That bike would have an exceedingly high amount of power, effectively vaporizes the back tire the secong you set hand on the throttle.
And if your wondering bout my dad's friend's hoss, he got rid of the 502 and put a crate 350 on it...its cool, i seen it.
But i still dont understand this PFM, please explain hobo...
First read about 13 posts up to find out how he rides THAT bike. I think asa67 has the PFM figured out, he can explain it. ;)
i aint doin no 'splainin, go hit up Google and find it
i worked too hard to give it away like that
You found it on Google, did ya? So tell me, what is the base principle that PFM is derived from?
i could explain, but it would be so long and convoluted, that trying to
comprehend it properly would cause many minds on this forum to melt out of
so i'll settle for saying it works because
Hmmm, that's what I thought. When you go to work tomorrow ask one of the old timers. If they have aircraft maintenance experience it's a plus. ;)
would it be the one found here
if not, then i'll actually do some real research later
Unfuckingbelievable, everything is on the web. And I have a site to add to my favorites.
Google is the inter-god
told ya i did, that's what you get for not thinkin i knew
Only thing I have to say is, I hope to hell everyone doesn't start speaking in this acronym tongue of tongues.
When you're in the military, or have spent any amount of time in the military, acronyms are a way of life. Well maybe not but you certainly get used to using them.
I spent over 30 yrs in the phone co. That is why I hate them so bad. Ten times worse than the military.
I personally prefer Honest Charley's Flathead over the Boss Hoss. Not as
much power but a substantially higher cool factor.
This is a "MOTORCYCLE". How they are suppose to be.
Yep, it's a scoot alright. Like I said, very cool. If I can find a pic online I know of a bike that will really blow you away. Maybe I'll have better luck tomorrow after I get Road Runner installed. Dial up sucks.
Dial-up, tell me ? Only reason I'm still on it is I get my telco lines for half price. Getting pretty fedup and about to go to cable. Prob another fight with the wifey :D
My dial up wasn't too bad... until somebody put a 150 house sub-division
right between me and the hub. The day they turned on the first phone my
speed, such as it was, just went to shit.
I have DSL at the shops because RR isn't available where they're located and it works pretty good. I held out as long as I could at home, only because I'm a cheap and hard headed bastard. At least it was an easy sell to my wife. She has absolutely no patience and has wanted the RR since forever. Now I'll finally be able to see some burnout videos at home. 8)
good move vwhobo...i have Road Runner and it is awesome...and Lectroid good luck with the wife...
Hell, I aint worried about the wife, it's kind of a joke the way we, I mean the way she trys to argue with me. I just sit and grin at her, makes her madder than hell, but I don't get upset. Go ahead and yell if it makes you feel better. Makes her madder :D
Um, you wouldn't by any chance have one :?: as if I would be surprised.
Nope, but I have Road Runner now!
I did notice that familiar looking valve cover and carb...
Oh Yea, I have a 56 vintage piece of shit.
how u like RR vwhobo?
So far it rocks. I can actually see video now. ;)
yeah....my whole internet life ive been spoiled...ive never had dial-up.
only RR. funny story about the whole internet thing...
so my grandfather is up here (he lives on Long Island) and were on the computer. keep in mind he still had dial-up at this time. so we want to download MusicMatch at his recommendation. so when the download starts, hes like "ah thisll take about 20 minutes to download." about 30 seconds later the download is done and my grandpa is standing there flabbergasted.
