This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
It might not look like it, but you're gazing upon the world's fastest big block V-twin. The Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle ($72,000) set the record of 172.2 mph on the Bonneville Salts, which translates to 200 mph on asphalt. It's 2,163cc, 160 hp X132 Combat Twin engine deserves most of the credit, but it's helped along by a 5-speed transmission, custom suspension, BlackStone Tek Carbon Fiber wheels, front Beringer and rear Brembo brakes, LED lighting, and a total body weight under 500 lbs. Limited to just 36 examples worldwide.
