Year End Dump

Post by pietenpol2002 » Wed Dec 31, 2014 6:12 pm

As the year ends it's time to clear out the old to make room for the new. Following is an accumulation of random diesel bike links and pics from the year.

From somewhere in Croatia comes this Ruggerini powered bike. Noteworthy is the apparent use of a scooter CVT which then required hardtailing the frame. Pics follow the link.

And then from Nowy Dwór Gdański,Poland we find this Yanclone coupled to a Ural box. The coupling to the flywheel side appears to make for a fairly short north/south drivetrain. Anyone recognize the frame? Again, pics follow the link.

Here from Mongolia we have a Robin diesel fired Ural that while unfinished, is an interesting read nonetheless.

This one is alleged to be a BMW with no clarity as to the engine - Lombardini maybe?

And now imagine if this Trabant prototype had made it into production??? If memory serves, it was developed in collaboration with VW as evidenced by what it shares with the usual VW diesel arrangement.

Our friend in Estonia who built the Yanmar powered Ural followed with another Ural powered by 1/2 of a 1.8 liter Ford diesel. We really need to know more about how he amputated 2 cylinder of a water cooled diesel. No small undertaking to be sure. Be certain the sound is turned up. And best enjoyed with headphones. It's a very sweet sound.

We might have seen this before - a German Hatz fired bike of limited uilitly.

And then, do we know these bikes?

Enough for now. Happy New Year to all.

The Estonian half-a-Ford machine sports an ample juicy sound. Commented on 'tube, inviting the author to this forum - let's see if he's interested in sharing.

Not sure it belongs here, the vid being of 2015.1.1., but since there is a lot of progress to be seen there, I'd say it is, technically, still 2014. Should I have missed a thread dedicated to this build, I am sorry, and Admin please feel free to delete this post. So here goes:
2WD Hydrostatic V-twin, twin-turbo diesel bike!
In-hub hydrostatic motors that rotate together with the hubs, air suspension on swing arms both front and rear. General style is that of a "redneck limo" rat chopper. Looks absolutely sweet, can't wait for a proper write-up!
