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!!!

posted by  Satty101

Clueless, I've never seen a bike like this one. Sure is different/ I like.

posted by  lectroid

wonder what kind of milage it gets?

posted by  Mustang79

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.

posted by  vwhobo

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...

posted by  asa67_stang

ugh. im not one for cruisers but this is just horrible. even though its fake... :?

posted by  SuperJew

id take it... i can only imagine how many heads i would turn with a bike like that

posted by  mazda6man

Yes, but can you imagine how many people would fall over laughing their ass off, seeing someone actually riding this ghettocycle ?

posted by  lectroid

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?

posted by  asa67_stang

I knew it was a joke. I'm just sayin. One hell of an expensive joke though.

posted by  Satty101

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 even BBC's.

yeah i just saw a few hoss' at the Motorcycle Show in NYC....those are pretty damn cool.

posted by  SuperJew

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

posted by  asa67_stang

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.

posted by  vwhobo

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

posted by  asa67_stang

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...

posted by  Mr. Horsepower

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. ;)

posted by  vwhobo

shoooooot...
i aint doin no 'splainin, go hit up Google and find it
i worked too hard to give it away like that
;)

posted by  asa67_stang

You found it on Google, did ya? So tell me, what is the base principle that PFM is derived from?

posted by  vwhobo

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 their ears

so i'll settle for saying it works because

;)

posted by  asa67_stang

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. ;)

posted by  vwhobo

would it be the one found here (http://www.ollieclark.com/acronyms.html)?

if not, then i'll actually do some real research later
;)

posted by  asa67_stang

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

so there

posted by  asa67_stang

Only thing I have to say is, I hope to hell everyone doesn't start speaking in this acronym tongue of tongues.

posted by  lectroid

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.

posted by  vwhobo

I spent over 30 yrs in the phone co. That is why I hate them so bad. Ten times worse than the military.

posted by  lectroid

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.

posted by  lectroid

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.

posted by  vwhobo

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

posted by  lectroid

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)

posted by  vwhobo

good move vwhobo...i have Road Runner and it is awesome...and Lectroid good luck with the wife...

posted by  SuperJew

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

posted by  lectroid

Um, you wouldn't by any chance have one :?: as if I would be surprised.

posted by  lectroid

Nope, but I have Road Runner now!

posted by  vwhobo

I did notice that familiar looking valve cover and carb...

posted by  BavarianWheels

Oh Yea, I have a 56 vintage piece of shit.

posted by  lectroid

how u like RR vwhobo?

posted by  SuperJew

So far it rocks. I can actually see video now. ;)

posted by  vwhobo

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.
