Sammy's Linto

In response to my post about the Harley Davidson Sprint, Stu sent me this picture.

Sammy is Sammy Miller, champion motorcycle racer. The Linto is a 500 cc Grand Prix racer from 1969. It used the top end from two single cylinder engines and grafted them onto a custom crankcase. It was a competitor.

Lots of pictures of this bike out on the net. I collected a few of them into one page. Only a handful of these bikes were made. At what point do all the bits from all the images outweigh the original machine?

24 were built, the later ones with the short-stroke engines, revving 1000 rpm higher for a few more hp over the standard 61hp.

Bits weigh 3.2 * 10^-35 grams per bit.
I'll leave you to do the math now ;-)
