Wow, just wow!
I'd be very happy to get my hands on their CAD files.
verry nice but why would they not just go ahead and make a better jug and head lol !!! they just wasted all that time !
Holy awesome!!! whats the cc now? 96 or 132?? v-twin 2 stroke...scary as ****!!!
Cool bananas! That is just beautiful. So when are we going to be able to buy one?
I figured there would be a few here that would slobber over this one...LOL!
I have trouble keeping a clutch from slipping on my current High performance build, so I hope he makes up some very high quality Pucks for the clutch on that thing or he will just roast that clutch.
He's a member on this forum and his forum name is Cherokeemotorbikes. He hasn't logged in since 2012. Here's a post he started on this forum:
I believe he wanted $18K for his bikes.
nothing wrong with this motor we all want something. the fastest person on earth is always want to go faster.
Damn, that's really old news.
Really ugly frame and body work.
He posted a video of it on YouTube barely running and never would post one of it actually moving.
Then he tried to sell everything for an outrageous amount of money.
Not my cup of tea, but regardless a considerable amount of skill & craftsmanship are involved.
And to be fair the video stated first time started, so I’m sure it was fine tuned later. However compare the sound to this tiny 2 stroke...
I agree. Reminds me of a machinist who paired a couple of Yamaha late '60s era YDS3 250cc parallel twin engines to form a 500cc in-line four (that shared the same "built up" crankshaft (IIRC, this running and ridable bike appeared in a motorcycle magazine). Some of the machinists in here might consider similarly configured project using a couple of Chinese 2-stroke bicycling engines.
Meanwhile, I'd like to know how many hours these guys put into such machines. Talk about having a love for your trade...
But then again, the $18K asking price for the twin cylinder bicycle engine probably best answers this question.
That second engine is a 4 Stroke engine, notice the external rockers on top for working the intake and exhaust valves.
neat project for someone who has wahy to much time on their hands...LOL!
Speaking of hands, the head machinist at a machine shop I worked at (while fresh out of trade school) was missing a finger from one hand and a couple from the other hand due to separate work related injuries (this guy was an older man from Denmark or there-abouts). He was a extremely talented machinist (regardless of his injuries) and a very nice guy at that.
Anyway, my point is that being a machinist not only requires great talent, but a degree of bravery as well.
"Never trust a shop teacher with ten fingers." - My Dad, after meeting my grade 9 auto shop teacher (he had 7.25 fingers... Dad still has all 10, he doesn't teach. ).
Opps, I meant to say 4 stroke.
My point was a 2 stroke isn’t really a good candidate for a V-twin, and even a tiny little 4 works better.
