    The only coffee table with a 10,000 mile service interval.

    I like it

    (In the '80s? they used to sell Ford Cosworth F1 engine block tables- probably worth a fortune now)

    I wonder if my wife would get upset if I removed the engine from her 916, sold the rest for spares then made a similar tale? It's not as if the cover has been removed from the 916 this summer so I could put another bike under it and she wouldn't know any different

    That actually makes it almost 'justifiable'

    I'd love that!
