Has anybody ever thought about making China Girl with twin engines?
I have a couple of tandem frames that may accommodate two motors. Check out "Double Vision Whizzer" on Google.
Twin motors with twin carbs!!
I'll see your two and raise you three! I can't find the original post, but I held onto these pics, because they're awesome. Triker's have a lot more room to play with(most of the time). Although you could go ht/friction/elec hubs if you don't want to go tandem...
edit-found the post:
I also saw that triple motor posting. There were a lot of comments about keeping the engines in synk for max power. However I don't care how you cut it that must be awsome! Free wheels would eliminate the engines draging each other.
It looks like the Acme twin will never be a reality(bummer) not because of the power but for the look would be great on Board trackers.
With a tandem I woulden't even worry about synking the engines. It would be a great project. Would live to see pictures.
I had that crazy idea years ago.
I bought an old Schwinn Heavi Duty frame, flat-plate OCCC Happy Time mounts and two HT engines. At that time, SBP shift kits weren't made, and I ash-canned the projects.
Might try it again.
Dam, You give up two easy(LOL)
It was the two clutch levers, two brake levers and two throttle levers ANNND the engines' width that stymied me.
So I blew through twin-engine(3hp each) friction drives, then 5hp friction drive, then finally 5hp frame-mount shift kit.
Not a quitter; I just chose easier paths to power and high speed, lol.
