Ernie Dorsett's Diesel Motorcycles
This is the first machine built by Ernie. The engine is by Petter. More details can be found on this bike elsewhere on the site.
A fine picture of the Royal Enfield that held the world economy record. It is in the Guinness Book of Records.
Sadly it was totally destroyed in the fire at the National Motorcycle Museum some years back.
Here we have a shot of the A.J.S. Robin. This is the machine currently used by Ernie. It has done many trips abroad.
This machine is the Harris Matchless and ports a 650cc Ruggerini Twin with a Comet Automatic Drive. It now lives in Denmark.
Here we have an example of the Matchless with a Robin engine. This machine was built around 2001 and now lives on the Isle of White.
This Matchless Robin won Special of the year award at a London show in 1989.
Four Matchless Robins lined up at the Northwest 200 in Northern Ireland.
Here we see an MZ Robin fitted with a Comet Automatic Drive. This is the Prototype bike. 10 more of these were later built.
This machine is an MZ with Comet Drive. It may well now be in Germany.
This is one of Ernies favourites, an off road Robin engined Royal Enfield.
Here we see a small capacity (250cc) Simpson scooter built for Gert Engemann in Germany.
And finally we have two pictures of Ernie with the Matchless Robin on the road in Finland.
