Don't want to keep you from taking over an interesting just-for-fun project :

200923


other things in the life of the owner got priority, but the intention was to fit an hydraulic drive system behind the engines. I know the bike and given time it might have worked. For more pics see the ad (click) itself !

Enjoy :cool:

The weight would be evenly balanced, but it's not going to corner well.

Well it's more original than a damn cafe racer or monoshock conversion.

As said, the thought was an hydraulic drive behind the gearboxes using bits from agricultural machines but that never happened, so correct, it doesn't run. This was really just for fun, never seriously for road or racing. There is a very informal tradition of fun rides on some CX meetings here in Europe. I mean, couple of years ago the Germans in Vechta had a (running !) CX sidecar beer table, excellent invention. Here in NL we've had - for a change - a CX with a VW beetle front end, that sort of thing.

Don't take it too seriously :cool:

As noted, some designs are just for fun! Old timers here will remember this was my pic for years, long long ago in a faraway galaxy.
