I kind of like it, alot! Pretty amazing engineering and i dont care what the haters would say about it being all about making up for extra small size.

Thanks for sharing

That dual wheel contraption is literally bolted to the swingarm (like extensions). Wow!

And is that a turbo mounted in there as well?

OK, you figure out how to mate 48 KH250 cylinders into one engine. And make it run.
This bike has been around for years, I think they built it back in 2004-2005. It uses an old 50cc Honda Monkeybike engine for a starter. Last I heard, though it had only been started and poked around a parking lot, then put in a display.

Any engineer worth his weight in 6061-T6 would have concluded such a beast carries too many inherent flaws - BEFORE committing one line (or mouse click) to the design. Running briefly around a parking lot is one thing. Keeping all them cylinders from overheating in normal operation - and the subsequent self-destruction - is just one consideration that apparently escaped this talented "fabricator".

I admire the guy's handiwork, like those who build miniature steam engines. Engineering is applied science. The implication is that there are sound method(s) and application(s) to the exercise. I don't see much of any here.

Automotive Art. Yes.
