Default So...

At first glance, I thought "So..." At least it's better that the chainsaw (or was it leafblower) bike!

Germans are f'in crazy.



Other than the obvious application as part of your clown act, when would one have a chance to ride and really enjoy this? And where the hell did he source a narrow angle twin in that size? Is it lopped off of some truck/tugboat/locomotive motor? Does anyone here read German?

One, if you click on the brittish flag, you'll get the english site, two, he probably got the motor design form a radial aircraft engine.

Yo Homaz, check out this blurb about the Gunbus on Motorcycle-USA.com



http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/Articl...ID=2998&Page=2



the engine is two cylinders taken from an aircraft radial. the tires are supposedly from a Boeing 767 airliner.



wacky, but I'd take it for a ride.

Good idea. If we can keep the Deutsche busy with these sorts of projects then they'll be too busy for their more traditional hobbies like invading Poland or producing crappy sidestands.

Great replica of a 2-wheel Panzer. Just needs a few machine guns to make it complete.
