Vmax modified by Roland Sands

A well made video, turning a cruiser into a heavy sportbike:


“Do…not waste time protesting the self-inflated showmen and bloviating bullshitters who populate our culture. It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist. "He wondered what difference any of it would make two hundred years from now." -from the book Cyclops by Clive Cussler.

His Vmax version is styled somewhat similar to the Ducati Diavel, or the cheaper Ninja 1000 but with lower grips.

A fun (and expensive) bike for the street, but for track days you would probably get passed a lot in the intermediate group compared to lighter sportbikes.

For drag racing the ZX-14 and Hayabusa probably beat it, especially if they are also modified to be lighter.

I like it. And I usually don't like bikes that look long. I wish I could make a tail like that for mine.
