from what I have seen and heard of this thing on cltc the original is very hard to handle. there is only one person who has driven it and that is the stunt driver from the movie.

100k, F*&^! That is a lot for a motorbike that isnt licensed. I would rather a Ferrari. Probably would of cost about 10k to make. Machining costs.
