Re: Think the steering's a bit quick on this Monst

Ouch, that is one hell of a human-launching sled,

I shudder to think of what "terminal velocity" one would need to achieve, in order to modify the steering rake to that degree

How much? Looks like a fine project bike.

Re: Think the steering's a bit quick on this Monst

It's kinda strange that the front end is all bent in like that but the front tire's not flat and the wheels not bent...is the triple tree/frame designed to cave in on impact?

It is a bit strange that the front wheel and tire appear to be undamaged. Could have been an off-road excursion and endoed in a ditch, but odd still as the bike's not dirty or carrying vegetation.

The other side of the bike may have some clues..

Looks like the upper T/C failed.

I actually did a monster just like that.

A suzuki gsxer low sided in a turning circle and slide into my left side as I had the bike leaned over.

Maybe they're planning on making a Monster chopper? ;)
