  1. Well, if that is real and someone rode it, there’s all the proof one needs that motorcyclists are indeed insane.

    Amazing model.

    • There IS a “real” one (or at least ONE that I’ve seen)…couldn’t figure out a way to post a pic into this reply, but go to the Motorcycles group and check out the photo there. It was on the internet, so it must be true, right? 🙂

  2. Just a whisker away from steampunk territory. Very unusual.

  3. Soooooo coooooool!! Nice work Maxim and in such a small scale to get all that great detail.

  4. Nice Idea ! – Looks great !
    but exhaust-pipe is much too small for that engine and the transmission-chain seems too weak to get that power onto the rear wheel 😉

  5. Love and favor yes, absolutely.

  6. My compliments to Vitaly, Maxim…..great piece of modeling!

  7. Completely insane, but, beautifully done, especially in 1/43 scale, it must be tiny.

  8. Ohhhh, What do you do with a spare airplane engine ?, sometimes you have to just let loose with some creativity, and let it rip, and when you do, this is what you get, something cool. Really cool, thanks Maxim and Vitaly.

  9. Thank you so much, colleagues!

  10. Man – that had to be a stretch to sit on that seat and reach both the handle bars and the pedals at the same time! Maybe it’s just ’cause I’m kinda short…

    Fun to see repurposed aircraft engines! I remember watching an Allison-engined tractor at a tractor pull when I was in high school (no – didn’t perform very well, in case you were wondering…!)
