Can appreciate that lots of hard work and money must have gone into destroying combining these 2 engines, but this is one ugly looking bike.

Looked it over yesterday, all of 30 secs Butt ugly only description suitable ,also you'd think He'd present it a little better at that ridiculous price, even a wipe over with an oily rag would be an improvement ! BobH.

The engine sprockets need to be swapped to allow 2nd motor primary drive to clutch.
Beauty is only skin deep. Ugliness goes to the BONE.

Must be a nightmare to set up and maintain. 4 carbs, 2 magneto's.....
It's a fact that BSA's gearboxes are sturdy, but can they handle the pulling power of 2 engines?
Should be making a hell of a noise though!
