never really been a strong point for me, i respect people who have it but i'm not one of them, usually. life is a wheel and just when you think you're pretty rad inevitably life will straighten you out, me anyway. i make some little parts and pieces for my projects and of course i'm proud of em', then i run across stuff like this built by Andreas Georgeade, he's a lifetime motorcycle rider/ racer/ builder from South Africa. he's built bikes with ferrari engines, raced isle of mann and the european 500cc GP and all over the world.

the honda cbx is an evil machine from the factory, but Andreas needed more so with no CAD equipment and rarely even a sketch (often after the work is done just to explain how it works) he mated two cbxs together to make this beautiful v12. the work that he's put into this is engine is unbelievable, whittle the rod journals down to fit two rods on each, weld two blocks together to acomadate the two cylinder banks on the same bottom end. the task of working out the timing of the ignition and the cams (4) would be enough to split a vessel in my brain.

oh yeah, the bike is amazing too.

Andreas Georgeade - hero.
