Here's a pic of Lucky Kaizer and his bike.
Its only got one engine but its enough, I think
I saw (heard) it run at the Laverda concourse 'under the bridge' about 10 years ago.
Its a V twin sliced off the end of a 12 cylinder 27 litre merlin aero engine. about 5000cc.
Stunning noise!!
Don't know what happened to it.
cheers

I discovered recently that a former colleague of my dads built a twin engined A10 outfit in the sixties, The one of the engines was actually a Huntmaster twin.
A period photo of had appeared in Classic Bike Guide a few years ago. I recognised the name and got my dad to ask if it was him.
Wonder what ever happened to it
Cheers,
Iain

Proving that memory loss has not fully set in, I recalled that I had seen a three-engine version some time back and had posted a picture. It took some searching, but I found the post. Here 'tis:

It seems to me that if someone has made a two-engine version, and another has made a three-engine version, maybe there was a four or more out there at some time.
