Twin-engine pulsejet motorcycle. As you do..Mon, 21 Feb 2011
The guy behind this twin-engined pulsejet motorcycle, Robert 'Bob' Maddox, fascinates me. He's a cabinet maker by trade but is somewhat an expert in the field of pulsejet engineering and has built a whole host of machines powered by the ever so subtle jet engine.
This latest bike is dubbed a Harley-Davidson Sportjet, although it has nothing to do with Milwaukee and I'm not sure why H-D made it onto the tank...
It's a work of art. Weird, but cool none the less. And it makes 250lbs of thrust, allegedly good for 200mph.
200mph on that? I'd rather walk barefoot through a dark room full of fat-tailed scorpions..
