New Member - Advice wanted.

Hi All

I've always wanted to build a diesel bike so I've decided to take the plunge. I've been watching this German Hatz Diesel Dnepr:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFRPG7QUORc

So I've decided to something along the same lines with a British twist :), I am going to use a Sunbeam S8 Frame and front end with a Dnepr K-750 reversing gearbox, drive shaft, final drive and rear wheel.

I hope you lot don't mind me asking a lot of questions as I progress :)

First off what engine is the above youtube using?

How easy is it to get one?

Anyone help with a adaptor plate?

Thanks

The engine in that bike is an Hatz 2G40,

I believe its A LÖEW production...

Welcome Paul :-) The chances of one of those turning up at our rally come May are slim but you never know. More likely to see one in Hamm I think.

Hi

Thanks for the update, yes I've decided to go for the 2G40 engine currently looking for a unit If you could keep me in-mind if one pops up that would be great.

So far I've got the following:

Sunbeam frame and front end

K-750 reversing gearbox, drive shaft, final drive and rear wheel

I'll try and get down to this years rally - might be on my other special (petrol sorry ) :)

I've emailed loew but the reply was in German and I don't think he was interested - anyone in the UK could help me make an adaptor plate?

Thanks

Paul
