Custom made bike gets power from 2.5 liter V6 Alfa Romeo engine

Yes, I know the website is called Auto Power, but this information is too good to be ignored. Some enthusiast developed a custom made motorcycle that he named AlfaBeast. Well, the name is not randomly selected, as the custom made motorcycle gets its power from a 2.5 liter V6 engine that has an output of 156 horsepower that he got from a late 1970s Alfa Romeo . The Alfa Romeo engine is coupled to a four speed transmission from a Harley Davidson while the braking system and forks come from a Kawasaki ZXR-750 superbike.

The creator of this custom made bike is named Chris Barber. He managed to fit the large Alfa Romeo V6 engine on a Kraftec frame. It is interesting to mention that there are six individual exhaust pipes, three on each side, while the Weber carburetor breaths through a set of pipes that stick out from the gas tank.

This motorcycle is just fabulous. You don`t see everyday a motorcycle with an Alfa Romeo engine. I am sure that any car enthusiast would more than enjoy a ride with this motorcycle. Who knows, maybe in the future Chris Barbet will attempt to create a FerrariBeast? Still, it would be hard to find a Ferrari engine to fit on a motorcycle frame, but with a little imagination I am sure it can be done.

Check out the photos of the Alfa Romeo powered motorcycle below.
