The mid-oughts (2003 to 2007) were a time of plenty. A time to dream big, because anything was possible and easy to fund with sub-prime loans and eager investors. Let’s say you had a sexy German girlfriend and you owned a company that built chainsaws. What would you do to highlight both? Build a 24 engined motorcycle, of course.
Each chainsaw was tuned to develop a whopping 7 horsepower at 10,000 RPM, making this a 168 horsepower, 24 cylinder, two-stroke. At one time there was video of it actually being ridden, but it appears to lost to the annals of history. Perhaps no one wanted a permanent record of looking that silly on two wheels, or perhaps the sting of financial collapse is still too fresh. Dare to dream, I say – let’s get working on an electric motorcycle, powered by 96 blender motors.
