In order to get enough funds Drysdale has created www.22000rpm.com for donations.
The engine is ready but the race bike needs some more money...

Pretty crazy - but go to the bike site www.22000rpm.com and look at the comparison to the 500 NSR - not worth all that bulk IMO. SIck bike tho.

I'm just blown away by the fact that they can buld a powerplant that light, with 8 cylinders, and make it robust enough to handle 22,000 rpm!!!

I remember when they made their first v8, It was a custom bottom end mated to a set of FZR400 heads and barrels, if I remember right. I think that the weight penalty for a v8 would hurt it in GP, but it would always be welcome in my garage!

Im trying to imagine what it must be like to ride and to actually wind around to the stop, It must be an awesome feeling knowing that the engine is spinning at 22,000 rpm.....
