I dont know what to think of it.
YouTube - Chainsaw Bike
To much money and spare time lead to some strange creations.
does it even move is what i wanna know?
Im pretty sure, there is another one the guy made too.
It is a 48 cylinder, 4200cc engine made from s1/kh250 cylinders, by Simon Whitlock."Each motor is basically 8 "s1 /KH250" cylinders bolted on to cut up standard casings, with a 8 cyl built up crank, in turn they are bolted to a housing, gear linked and driven thru a BMW road bike gearbox, as the bike is pretty long already it would be difficult to put a transverse drive thru a gearbox. It has taken almost three years of hard work and he has overcome some huge problems to get here - - where do you even start to think about building a bike like this? . . . Oh, by the way, Simon is not an engineer of any kind - he oversees the building of shopping precincts etc. Don't look at it as a bike, look at it as a pure feat of engineering . . . and Simon built a Nitrous injected, fuel injected, water cooled, supercharged H1. It has a small chainsaw motor under the seat that is used as the starter motor for the 48 cylinder motor. "The ignition is 6 x 8cyl E-Type Jaguar distributers." "Oh, and not only does it run - but it is rideable - JUST! - the engine and box alone weight just over a ton! " Same guy has made several other multicylinder bikes of different types. Two of them are in the Barber Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham Ala. Largest and most complete motorcycle museum in the world. Look it up at www.barbermuseum.org
That second bike is beautiful. check out the video of the guy "this is how a real man unloads a truck"
i dont care what they do to it.. i just wanna see someone actually ride it..
