    Yes, a few folks have done it. Off the top of my head Ozzy and 7-11 among others, if memory serves. What are you thinking, ebike and 2 stroke or some thing like that? Post lots of pics!

    I always thought a hub motor with a 4 smoker would be the perfect set up. Use the hub motor as back up and use a solar charger. Dunno but would be cool.

    Ever see this?
    YouTube - Chainsaw Bike

    I really love the crazy, "just see if you can build it, builds"

    I was checking out the Schwinn tandem the other day. Really a high quality and well made bike and a great candidate for a multiple engine set up. (Also be the only way I will ever get Carol on a MB)

    syncronizing two ht's might take an engineering degree.

    are you sure gearing the thing up wouldn't be more fun (& useable)? but maybe you've done that...

    I linked two Homelight wacker engines together for a friction bike no problem. Turns out it's not tricky at all, they sync right up and share the load.

    I'm considering putting one of my old friction drives over the back wheel to backup the 80cc HT. Planning a 300mile trip next week.

    OH MAN RON!!!! 2 kool! Please do! So many things. Big butt HF engine behind the driver where no peddles would be needed...... Or... dunno, so many things you can do with that much room. I can't wait to see what you come up with. My GB with out the box shifter kit would lend it self to this. Gonna use a shaft in place of the BB as the GB and drive. In that vain, a CVT would work perfect!

    Got me wee lil brain reeling. I am running out of $ for this crazy!!! snork
