They apparently invested a lot of time and money in design and engineering; more than you might expect for a "one off" deal.

The MotoCzkyz? I've had my "lifestyle t-shirt" for years now!

Investment is the operative word. Some of these guys just string investors along for years. Good work if you can get it.

Actually, you can still get your very own turbine bike for the low, low price of $175,000: MTT- Turbine SUPERBIKE, Y2K bike, Jet Bike, Jay Leno’s motorcycle

Christian Travert, the V-Rex guy, engineered the Y2K turbine bike, but he no longer has any affiliation with those guys. Oh, and they're not calling it the Y2K anymore. It's now called "Superbike."

The MotoCzysz guys are a whole 'nother story.

Fischer Motor Company

Granted, they still have stuff from the '06 models on the site, but I saw a pic of the '07 (looks just like '06) awhile back.

On their "Orders" page, there's this:

Guess I should have looked. Too busy taking the online PS101 class being given on an other thread.

I really would like to seem them pull a "Buell" - sell enough bikes with someone-else's engine in it until they've enough experience and equity in the company to finance their OWN engine design (even if someone else is building it).

I've heard no complaints about the Hyosung mill, though.

Crap, they don't take PayPal. Damned if I'm just going to mail a check or hand out my Visa number!

Last one I saw was at the USGS 3 years ago. Had about 75k on the clock but was still in near factory shape. The GTS looked a little heavy but I thought it was cool for what it was. How did it ride? Being an alteranative front end rider myself (telelever).
