Gekko is one of the most passionate motorcycles. I built this machine to realize the idea and challenge the skill. For example, separation of front engine transmission, relocated oil pump, connecting the front & rear engine, synchronization all carburetor and ignition timing, building original design frame, etc, etc,. These work were very difficult, but I enjoyed them.
And another purpose is to run land speed race. We have been challenging Bonneville speed week and El Mirage Dry Lake since 2016. Next goal is to record break!
