Never seen it myself. Just stumbled across the pics on the norwegian Z1300 owners club site. It looks mean :)

I saw a mock up of a v-12 a couple years ago, it sounded like an f-1 car, the guy that built the v-12 also did some v6 two strokes with the 500/750 engine, as well as a v-8.

The V8 was a Z1. The multiple triple 2 strokes are mostly made of S1/KH250 engines. There's been made a few 1000cc H2's (4 in line), 5 in line, 7 in line a W9 and a 48 cylinder "triple".

What a coinkydink....I picked up a mag today called Classic Motorcycle Mechanics because the cover grapped my attention immediatly. I'm not sure what grabbed my attention first - the pretty lass atop a FOUR CYL 1000 cc H2, or the 4 CYL 1000 cc H2 with a pretty lass atop of it !!!

Anyway's, there is an article inside about the bike, and it is absolutely beautiful. The engine, it turns out is one of Allen Millyard's creations. Nice magazine geared towards the older bikes as the name suggests. Resto tips and builds etc. Good info, and there was a reference to Jeff from Z1 in there...go figure.
