Re: Coventry Victor Opposed Diesel

I think they could build one, but they don't want to.

They prefer to build bikes that need a rain mode cause of their unusable amount of power. Strange but true.

Re: Coventry Victor Opposed Diesel

Correct me, if I'm wrong. This is a very nice find, of course. What do we have in the end? - They build diesel engines for boats - They have said they wanna show a dieselbike, back in 1932 - Nobody has ever seen it So it could be, that, they announced it, but for some reason it never enters the stage.

It's amazing how many different engines they must have build. There are many photos on the website. Photos! No renderings!
Is this the same Bernard Hooper that was an engineer at Norton-Villiers?

And we spread the news and talked about it more than two years ago, when some videos about the engine were posted.

Then use the car gearbox but get the drive from the second shaft in the box rather than from the diff output like other builds. What makes this possible is that all cars of this era started off mainly as 4 speed boxes and then as sales pressures went up they all competed by offering 5 speed options...

Re: "Diesel Model" in the 10th May 1956 issue of The Motor Cycle

It's always struck me that engineers in the 1950's could convert an existing bike to diesel; If it could be done then why not now? We have two converted machines back in the 1950s. Not more. Did you noticed the engines needed a mixture of Ether and Kerosene to start? Maybe nobody wants to deal with...

Looks like a petrol powered "Lister D" and has a spark plug.
