    The Craig Vetter designed Mystery Ship is one of my favorite motorcycles of all time. There were only 10 built, however he planned to build 200. Why didn't he? In short they cost to much to build. I have found images of #1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9 on the net. #2 was painted black, they called it Darth Vetter, and it's MIA. I don't have pics of #8 or 10 either. I spoke to Craig about Mystery Ship #2 and asked if he had any images, and he sent me this super cool pic. He said images of #2 are very rare. In the pic below you can see it with #1 and #3. I can now see why they called it Darth Vetter, even the crankcase is black. It's like the Buick Grand National of Motorcycles!

    The secret Vetter stash of Tom is unknown. There are 3 missing Mystery Ships, he probably has one of them.

    There is a mystery ship brochure on eBay right now, it could make an interesting collectable.

    Yeah, I have one of those. It is a great collectable. As time progresses you will see fewer and fewer of these items.
