    The article says “The elderly owner of the building admitted that his son stole the bike before heading off th World War One.” Anyone notice something strange about that sentence?

    I think its cool but no way would I want to hit a bump on that thing moving at highway speeds.  The only springs on it are under the seat.  Just imagine how bad it would hurt the plums.

    Nice for it’s rarity, but the builder was no sheet metal artist.

    AssWhack! And WW1 was fought from 1914 until 1918 so this comment seems plausible.

    I heard that the builder of the bike was constantly being yelled at by his crazy mustache father.

    It’s only rare because the minute you start it up the engine gets so hot it burns off your testicles.

    The Unblinking Spyder Was that supposed to be funny, observant or sarcastic? You are a cockless tool.
