Rudge Special from Bike Exif

Not to be one of those guys who blogs about other blogs, but I just had to say this is one of the coolest customs I've seen in a long time. A Rudge-Whitworth 500cc engine with a completely fabricated frame, quarter gallon gas tank (obviously not for touring but for short bursts of speed) and I believe a JAP gear box - all neatly packaged in a board-tracker-esque bike. Apparently the builder, Jean-Claude Barrois, swapped the tires for some higher performance rubber and plans on racing it at Bonneville next month. Read more about it at Bike EXIF. I need to learn how to weld....
