Since this would fit better in the Tavern, or the off-topic forum, better than it would in the rest of the site, here's something really cool that you might like, someone put a Yanmar air-cooled diesel on their motorcycle and turbocharged it, I would imagine this guy put out fairly insane torque numbers for a vehicle of this size, and just for the cool factor of having a diesel motorbike.

*Update: Came across what might be a good engine for diesel motortrike builds, because a 1.496l I3 would lend itself well to longitudinal mounting, which in turn would lend itself well to a trike, Yanmar 3TNV84T: http://www.yanmarindustrial.eu/Products/Diesel-Engines/3TNV84T-B-32/

The engine used on this guy's bike, Yanmar L100, er, a clone of it anyways: http://www.yanmarindustrial.eu/Products/Diesel-Engines/L100N-70/
