Spotted among the vendors at Bloomington Gold 2002

2 Far-Out Bikes!

You may have seen V8 powered motorcycles before. The "Boss Hoss" comes to mind.
But look at this one closer: That's a Flathead Ford!
In a weird way it makes sense - it's a helluva lot narrower than a small-block Chevy!

If more is better, then too much is just right. How about 1.5 flathead Fords?
Yes, that's a Lincoln Zephyr V12 you're looking at! Just as narrow as the Ford. Those antique looking saddle bags conceal 2 radiators.
Check out the Zephyr teardrop headlight.

Quite a pair, both beautifully executed!
