Well, here’s something a little different, and it comes to us from our sister site psychobike.com. If you’ve ever wanted to give proper drag racing a try, this rolling chassis of a Hayabusa drag bike could be the perfect starter package. If you don’t know what a rolling chassis is, well, it can mean many things. At its most basic, a rolling chassis is just that – a chassis/frame and the required pieces to fit wheels on it so it can roll and move around. What we have here appears to be a complete motorcycle, minus an engine.
I don’t know much about drag bikes, but I do know a thing or two about building a bike into something to serve a specific purpose (track riding in my case): Unless you really love turning your own wrenches, and the associated costs of doing so, it’s easier and more economical to pick up someone else’s project that has most of the work already done. That seems to be the case here.
According to the seller, this rolling chassis has never been raced, will weigh well under 400lbs when ready to rock, and can get you into the mid-eight-second territory with a stock Hayabusa engine. It’s already setup to accept said Hayabusa engine, so if you have a modified one laying around, here’s the perfect home for it. Billet motor mounts, Brembo brakes, controls, wheels, tires, and bodywork are included. All this for $3800. Sounds pretty fun to us. Here’s the full listing:
