Bistella two stroke
« on: 12.05. 2023 01:28 »
G'day Fellas.
Just saw this on FB. Radial 10 cylinder supercharged 500cc two stroke.
Some people have too much time on their hands.
Cheers

Wondered how on earth one got crankcase pumping until the penny dropped - supercharged.
Full marks for ingenuity, but why? Doesn't exactly look great, and must sound like a wasp having a panic attack. Straight 6 Detroit diesels are bad enough, their V8's horrendous, but this?

G'day RD.
Doesn't sound too bad. Click on the link above to a youtube video of him riding it and how it was built.
Cheers

Great machinery. Alternatively: Blimey! What a mad chap :O)

Many tech concoctions are proofs that madness \ genius are related states of mind.
