Turbocharged VT500...

This was posted up on the F/B Ascot page. Even though it's not an Ascot, it is still very cool. Here is the link: http://imgur.com/a/dr24v

Wow! brilliant!
That engine without the black paint is looking very good!
I might have to do the same :)

The Shadow engines aren't all black. I can't recall if they are completely silver or half & half.

This should be a cool bike when it's done. Hope it is completed & I find more information on it.

I believe this is the same bike:  http://instagram.com/strangecoastmoto/

I saw it at The One Show. It was labeled as an '85 VT500, so I'm thinking the donor may have been a Shadow. I would have liked to have talked to the builder of the bike, but he was not around while I was there. I would really like to ride it!
