Amazing. I am disappointed that the cams are in the crankcase, rather than in the heads.

Thats an awesome tiny machine. The skill involved in making a tiny working thing is incredible.

Looked to me like it was air driven!!

Only saw one plastic tube feeding the thing!!! The lower end of the engine was exposed too.

If it was air driven then it's just a very expensive model of an internal combustion engine.
If that's the case I'm only impressed by the machining.
Now I'll have to put my 582cc parallel twin internal combustion engine back in my Swing.

Don't be so hasty, it may be possible to adapt an air driven thingymajigg to drive your 'Wing'. A mini air compressor, micro filters. I mean, the fuel is all around and FREE!!!!!!

Terry,

Just put a gas powered air compressor on your back seat and you can get all the air you want. A "Real Man" would have done this already. Twisted Evil

Having worked in a small engine plant building lawn mower engines, I can really appreciate what it must take to machine all those little parts. Just a little to much tool pressure and you are starting over again. Awesome!

Whether it actually functions or is an air-driven model, all I can say is WOW!

Bet it won't pass CARB certification, though...

A guy from the Steve Saunders site (Goldwing) is this guy's neighbor. He builds these things but won't sell any of them. He has quite a collection of these types of mini motors.

Bigbird,

If you really want something unique, I don't see why you can't put around
three DOZEN of those things in place of the original engine.

You'll be the only bike on the planet with a 432 cylinder power plant.

Dan
