Private Development of Diesel Motorcycles by engine
Mick Corse and his Turbine bike.
This machine is still on the bench as far as I can tell. I'm going to put it up top here because we see so little turbine bikes. Enjoy.
It's coming together.
It's a good idea to have the exhaust pointing sideways here. Remember how Jay Leno told that story of some guy coming up too close to him whilst he was out on his Y2K Turbine bike? The guys car bumper melted away!
The BMW Project
It seems some students have put in work to covert A BMW Boxer engine to run on Diesel. All links I have are now dead. I do not know the outcome here.
Andreas Kossmans Diesel Motorcycle
Originating in Berlin, Andreas Kossmans Diesel Motorcycle first made it's public appearance at the 2002 Hamm Diesel Bike rally where it arrived on a trailor. I gather work is still going on with this machine, which sports a 1.4 litre Ally Citroen engine.
The futuristic looking machine from Andreas.
U.S. Daihatsu Scooter
A 3 cylinder Daihatsu takes shape..
Fermer Hatz Diesel ATV
The Fermer ZDT is a Russian 2 stoke bike which originally came with a 197cc engine. Martijn Stehouwer is in the process of modifying one of these machines by fitting a Hatz 1B30 engine. If I find out this is more of a commercial venture I shall move the bike into the appropriate category. Martin can be found at EMOT Racing.
A Diesel ATV in the making.
