I had an early 6-'s oldsmobile that was 215 c.i. once. But it was a V8!

Like those super high end looking bike builds where they faked the V-twin look by adding a dummy cylinder to a single cylinder case.

"It's ready for just about any sort of on-roading, and, best of all, in the process it can get the rider emotionally charged without ever needing to drag a peg or peg a redline. The Virago is a custom style bike with a wide range of capabilities. There is something very special that relentlessly compels you to just get on and ride- somewhere, anywhere

his website says because of his "affection for vintage aircraft and Harleys", so guess it was to have the biggest "po-ta-to" on the block. :blush: :naughty:
