Big Ned, Aussie built bike.

The engineering is impressive, I'm not sure what I think of the finished bike, each to their own.

there was also a link at the bottom of the page to this South African CBX V12, very impressive especially when you see his workshop and his ability to turn something like this out of a very humble shed

I discovered that CBX by mistake a couple of weeks ago.

I was on youtube, looking at CBX`s, standand and modified, and that 12 cylinder jobbie popped up.

The audio wasn`t that good, but to me it sounded horrible


I like the sound of the straight 6

I've seen Big Ned up in Dorrigo at Juans Cafe. There was quite a write up on it there as well. The engineering was absolutely amazing! 
The story goes that he lives in the mid north coast area of NSW, & built the bike in his shed at home. I was going to mention the mufflers, but I see they did that in the story. The piston rings are from an Isuzu truck.
