Bradley GT VW Bug with YZFR-1 R1 Engine on the road
Thanks again to Mike Sousa on the video and posting. Antique Car is totally done, registered and driving. It ends up liking 6th gear (motorcycle tranny), it went a little "over" speed limit in 4th (VW tranny), but seems to have the same top end speed that the normal VDub would have, about 80-90 mph, "though I didn't push it to that officer, honestly"
