    Hope you guys enjoy this puppy. It has a cast iron Block Briggs and Stratton kick start washing machine engine coupled to a Peerless lawn and garden tractor transmission. A home built retro style frame. The guy who built this is a flippin genius!

    I love it - the only thing I would say is there is a little too much play in those cables for my liking - get them caught in something and its either goodbye rider or goodbye controls - not a good combination

    otherwise - how much would he charge for another one lol

    Yeah, cool.

    Just change those forks to an old style looking springer (not the Schwinn type) and it would look really neat.

    That is a great looking machine...but aren't those old washing machine engines 1/2 to 3/4 hp?

    Yes they are. Say have any details, spec.s, etc. on that transmission?

    I would imagine that the Peerless gearbox is like this one.......

    This one is a Peerless Transmission 700-070A and it's a 5 speed gearbox.

    I think that green motorcycle is a stunning piece of work, the proportions are absolutely spot-on and everytime I look at the picture it whispers, 'Ride me, ride me...'
