Quote:
From the V-8-powered Boss Hoss to the Sears Allstate 'Twingle' (split-single), motorcycle engines have enjoyed a quizzical variety of configurations. In a future Top 10 weíll countdown the most bizarre motorcycle engines, but for this list let us examine the engines that have come to dominate motorcycle power production.

Re: Top 10 Motorcycle Engine Configurations

that chainsaw-engined contraption shown as the title frame is hilarious. I posted a video on here a year ago or so of it taking 2 guys around 5 minutes, spraying gas into the various carbs with a big puddle of gas under the bike before it was sort-of running on at least 1/2 of its cylinders

It proved an important point: Just because you 'can' doesn't mean you 'should'

Found it... look at the video in here and prepare to groan click

Re: Top 10 Motorcycle Engine Configurations

Pretty stupid article. Basically explaining all the various types of engine configurations and providing no meaningful reasoning for the ranking.
