Default Does anyone make a 3800 powered bike?

A motorcycle turned by me and my first thought was "WOW, that bike is fat " it was really wide. Then as it got closer I saw that it was because of the huge engine. It was a v6 and sounded like a 4 stroke which naturally got me thinking about a 3800 powered bike...

An aluminum engine would be much much better for weight reasons alone..

You should see and HEAR the 502 Boss Hoss Run. Rolling burnouts at 60mph with ease!!

I have seen a homemade dragbike that was powered by a series 1 3800. It was a pretty cool looking bike. I have a couple of pics

Thats not a Series 1, thats an LN3, pre Series 1. Holy crap tho, 2 wheels, a seat and the weight of the engine with an LN3? holy hell.

I think that the guy was saying that the bike ran mid to low 10'* in the 1/4. Sounded pretty wicked too.
