chainsaw-powered motorcycle



Quote:
What makes the Dolmette unique in engineering terms is its 24-cylinder 2-stroke power plant. Nothing quite like it has been seen before. The combined power of 24 DOLMAR chainsaw engines is fed into to a 5-speed Harley-Davidson transmission by a series of twelve toothed belts.

It sounds like a...um...chainsaw.
I have a hard enough time trying to keep one chainsaw running, let alone 24 of them....I laughed to when they had to pull-start all 24 engines. Pretty high tech. They had trouble getting the bottom rear engine on the left side started...that would be the one that I would end up with. LOL.
It looks like there is NO bottom end torque on the bike also....
I guess my overall impression of the bike is not a good one. Sorry Jon, I gotta give this one a thumbs down.
Later,
WEIMER

Wow

Hey
Let everyone call you NUTS but I give you an AAAAAA for effort.
The engeneering had to be a nightmare.
It looks like a fun ride, fast or slow.
THAT MACHINE IS WHAT HOT RODS ARE ALL ABOUT.
I am always building some kind of insanity.

Keep up the great work. LOU

It would wear me out just to start it and it probably has the same turning radius as my truck.

To make that thing run DECENT, you'd need to do something with expansion chambers for the exhaust, instead of dumping it all in two pipes. 2 strokes need reversion to work good, and dumping it all in the same resonator doesn't work. Also, that bike needs a CVT. It will be an absolute PIG with a 5 speed trans. 2 strokes need to run the rpms at peak hp numbers to be efficient. Gears need torque. Something 2 strokes don't have.

I doubt it's by any means practical. But definitely cool.
