Default Re: Too crazy even for The Maniac!

I ran into this a long time ago. It's a better proposition for a bike. There have been many actually built. Smaller than the pulse jet it's called a pressure jet engine. It's throttleable and runs on propane. Different motors from 15 lbs thrust to 130 lbs thrust and those numbers can be tweaked by increasing the tank pressurization. A good sheet metal welder could build one from a kit, someone who welds up stainless steel kitchens for a living could do it easily
