Quick clip of the Worlds largest multi Cylinder Motorcycle, this 48 cylinder bike was built by my pal Simon Whitelock - here it is at the Triples Rally in 2004 - it is actually 49 cylinder as the initial sound is of the single cylinder starter engine

Our 48 cylinder motorcycle brought back to life!
We got it going again - Note: The "donkey engine is LOUD", so please do
turn the volume down a little.. You can see and hear the 48 running towards
the end of the video.

Remember the six-cylinder Kawasaki KZ1300 from the late-1970s? The brutish,
motorcycle weighed an almighty 322kg, did the quarter mile in 11.96
seconds, and was capable of hitting a top speed of 225km/h. Enough for you?
It wasnt, for Allen Millyard, a nuclear research engineer by profession.
So what did Mr Millyard do? Why, he built his own bike of course a
12-cylinder Kawasaki KZ2300. While his hand-built machine looks stock, its
actually considerably bigger and the V12 engine is comprised of two
complete KZ1300 cylinder blocks.

The expansion chambers are "home made" by hydroforming. The original Exhaust is milled away and the engine

This engine will get electronic fuel injection and will not be used in a

Tim Cotterill " The Frogman", Rocket 2 Trike. Size Does Matter
Was driving on the PCH in Malibu, when I saw Tim on this beast getting
ready for a cruise... He designed the whole thing. It's an all aluminum,
hand built body. Suspension is all original designed out of steel. 1200hp,
supercharged (obv). The front wheel is a custom machined 1 piece 2 tire

Dyno. The motor is a
4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
