The photo looks like there's engine oil in the frame, not engine oil in the transmission. Although the use of a fuel filter is weird as I'd think it would clog up fairly quickly. Unless there is really fuel inside the frame?

Engine oil in the frame, okay, oil tanks mounted in unconventional places, sure. But engine oil in the transmission? And running both units on what is essentially a single quart of what? Magic Oil?

I know you can put 50 weight engine oil in a transmission and it'll be okay, for a while. But that's a roadside repair/emergency thing.

Not to mention they took the best transmission available, a Baker, and they drilled into the case to plumb it for oil lines?

Gee, you'd have to change the oil and filter once a month if you rode this setup every day.
