The comment was 

Went over to this gents house to see this bike he's been building. The engine is built from two Honda VFR750 engines spliced together to form a V8 displacing ~1500cc, it runs on nitro and has a roots-type supercharger. During our visit he offered to fire it up for us. It sounds positively ferocious!

As awesome as it is, I don't think I want to be taking it around a corner!

Yeah, I think this one was intended for straight line speed runs!

Ciao,

- Sounds incredible! Delicious!   No corners on this one, but for a  chance to get on it and hold it WFO in a straight line,  I think I could see God on that!

OK unless I'm missing something it does not appear to have a cooling circuit ! I can see an expansion tank but NO rads !

 

One idea I've had for ages would be to build 3 x VFR800's into a V12 aero engine ! If tuned to 130hp each at the crank, then combined normally aspirated it should be a 400hp motor, now with super/turbo charging, that would rise to MAX power of around 550hp or maybe a bit more !  From an engine that weighs in around 150Kg or less. It would be great for a 1/2 or 2/3 scale Warbird engine.
