Momo's Digger

.

Like a lot of people, I wasn't too impressed by the custom bike scene during the 80's and 90's, that's to say the high tech period, billet barges, tail draggers and the like...
Momo built his digger in 1991 fabricating the frame around a Kawasaki 1100 GPZ, and back then he fitted T4 Garrett Turbocharger which increased the performance to 160cv allowing him to compete in drag races in the 'constructors class'.

Today Momo's Kawasaki has been tamed and is fuelled by simple carburetors. We felt the urge to try Momo's 'blast from the past' for ourselves, and of course snap a few photos...

Pour avoir vu l'engin en vrai, c'est une meule remarquable : belle gueule, beau style et bel esprit. Chapeau ;-)

That's got to be one of the coolest inline-4 chops I've seen. Somehow they never seem to look quite right, but this one's perfect. Must have been one hell of a ride back when it had a turbo!
