Chronic Pinking!!

Post by minetymenace » Wed Oct 05, 2005 9:21 pm

Diesel motorcycle seen on the road!! Obviously a forces effort, very noisy from the top end, and leaking oil everywhere.

Have been promised a ride on it.

US military, which I am peripherally involved with is working on going all diesel. This looks like a good alternative to the Enfield version... :roll:

Sorry about the blur, taking with my cell phone at dusk. The rider says it has the performance of a B25, seems to be based on a K*wasak* 650, developed in the UK, being produced in the US.

Eric Cheney developed one for the british forces, the idea behind it was so they could use one fuel in all modes of transport. they gave him an engine and he built the bike around it. don't know what happened to it,
the project was for evaluation for eventual production. Simon will know the full story the machine looked good but i've no Idea how it performed.
I do remember it had twin injectors.

Yes Paul, I think this is the reason for development, as most of the Army's vehicles seem to be deisels now. It is my experience that there is a lot of this sort of thing going on, someone has an idea and it is developed by a number of different people before the brass decide which version (if any) will be used

.... Hope to meet you again at Farliegh Castle/Forum Members Meet next year....

Full marks Paul, I knew there was something about it that was vaguely familiar, I think it is the oil leaks that gave it away.....
