Has anyone seen the bike in the new issue of "AMERICAN MOTORCYCLIST"? This bike has a 7 cylinder radial aircraft engine in it,no need for crash bars. BREWSKI

This bike has been showing up in many media sources over the last six weeks or so. It seems to me that I recall seeing Jesse James name connected with it. Gyro-scope ?

jOHN,There is a pic of a bike that was at OSHKOSH(for the fly-in) that had the same type of engine mounted transversely. Click on practical machinist,general heading,"how to build your own bike". Also check out the http://www.leonhardtweb.de site on the gunbus bike;6 liter v-twin. BREWSKI

The way I did it was to click on 'PRACTICAL"ACHINIST",GENERAL HEADING ,scroll down to BUILD YOUR OWN BIKE. I just tried BILLY'S two links and they didn't work either. BREWSKI

Throwing a rear chain is bad enough but the guy in the lower pic better hope he never throws a rod or cylinder---or 2 or 3.

When I see something like that it strikes me that the builder did it "just because he could," and then I think the guy had too much time on his hands and excess cash to go with it.

Loop ... Based on that logic, this guy would fit very comfortably on this list :D ... except maybe for the "excess cash" part.
