I suppose. It looks nice and all but is it even rideable?

That bike looks perfectly ride-able. What makes you question that? Maybe not so fun for a significant distance, but rippin' 'round town or a nice cruise through some twisties?

I'd ride it! It has a great balanced look.

Yeah. Here's the bike we were all talking about:





The wheels are 21-inch at the front and 18-inch at the back, adding to the poise of the bike, but I’m not sure the drum brakes will be up to the job. Granted, an SR500 thumper is not the quickest of bikes and not the easiest to tune, but Old Speed Factory has taken the brute force route: the motor has been bored out from 87mm to 95mm, hiking capacity from 499 to 623cc. This is one SR that’ll show a clean pair of heels to most of its namesakes.

Mostly the fact that it has almost no suspension travel, front or rear. It looks like it would be about as much fun in the twisties as a Fat-Boy-Bob-Glide-Whatever.
