I am sure this an expensive conversion. At certain stage of life it is worth every penny. I was at a wedding this weekend and saw the "old" generation having to be helped out of chairs and headed home very early in the evening. That made me really ponder how long I am going to be able to ride. Perhaps the last one should resemble Wagner and the Valkyries.The one I've seen in person had the two wheels at the front rather than the rear.
The guy had lost his leg to smoking and paid to have his done because it was so much easier than trying to ride with a prosthetic and he wasn't giving up his Vmax for anything.
I respect the hell out of them for that. Got to sit on it. It was very cool.
Edit to add: This isn't the actual one I saw but it looks a lot like it:

It had a nice big guard this is a picture when he was working on it one dayThe Europeans are 'way-ahead of us in the modded VMax'es.
Kyle's friend's blower w/o a guard makes me shudder, and not from the performance potential. Maybe he can inform us about the performance. I suspect that with the increase in rubber on the road, there's a potential for the bike to accelerate better-than a stock bike, but it might require a deft touch to get it doing that. Probably need some wheelie bars to keep it from looping. I expect that you'd need-to break the tires loose a-bit to be able to take advantage of the larger rubber contact patches.
