Cycle with RV sized engine
« on: March 26, 2009, 06:03:17 PM »
Is this bike large enough? The engine is more than 400.

That is,  more than 400 CID, not CC's!

Wild.  Have you seen the bikes with the V8 engines?  Bigger displacements, but 8 cylindars makes it more manageable size than a V-twin.  This is one from back in my RI days.  Met the owner at our favorite weekend camp spot.  This one was a 351 if I remember right, he also had a 502 cu in.  Said it was a smooth ide.

Only on TV, along with the motorcycle that has a jet engine. Listen to it start up here.

The V8 motorcycle I saw on TV was with a Chrysler engine. You can read about it here. You can even buy one for only $250,000.00!

BTW, I own several smaller older motorcycles, a 1971 BMW R75/5 I purchased new in 1971, a 2002 Suzuki DR200SE and a couple of early (1983 & 84) Yamaha Ventures.

The Tomahawk was V-10, the Viper engine and the Boss Hoss in the photo has the Chevy 350, not a 351 which is a Ford. The Boss Hoss is rideable while the T'hawk is a museum piece.

This needs an update for the now largest cycle ever built. And this one comes with a demonstration.

While not a large as the Boss Hogg here is another V8 motorcycle
Beautiful, It was at the Barber Motorcycle Museum a must visit for any motorcycle nut.
There have been in the past several motorcycle manufacturers experimenting with V8s, too expensive.
