Yanmar diesel 2WD hydraulic drive motorcycle
Here's a short video of a neat diesel motorcycle I saw at the Barber
Vintage motorcycle show. It's built from a Yanmar 10hp diesel coupled to a
variable displacement pump. Then out to hydraulic motors to turn the
wheels. Looks are deceiving. There's a lot of aluminum parts to the bike.
The bike only tips the scales at 300lbs. The bike can be ran in 2WD or
single rear wheel drive. Speeds are about 25mph in 2wd, and 55-60mph in
single wheel drive. Fuel estimates are around 100mpg! This is due to the
highly efficiency of a hydraulic setup. This setup nets a 93% efficiency
rating. The bikes suspension is a air shock setup. Increasing the
pressure causes the bike to gain ground clearance. Also shortening the
wheelbase for better handling manners. The bike was designed by Andy Wendt
and built by Chris Self, Owner of Miracle Machine Works. 334-872-0121

My Kenne Bell Supercharged 1993 Mustang Cobra Lined up against some
kid in a Honda Civic who thinks his car is fast.
The reason for this video is fuel for my hatred for the import community.
He had a big vinyl banner in back of window that says "GOD CREATED turbo LAG TO GIVE V8'S A CHANCE". You tell me,
who started this one...
Also, in the video I raced a gal on a Yamaha R6. She had a terrible 60'
but caught me in the end of course.
Turbo Diesel Mini Bike
Start at 2:13 to skip the intro, or click here for a helmet-cam ride:
This is an idea I've had since I was a kid, and after watching Mike Cberts
Diesel mini bike video I was inspired to put together my own! The frame
has been around since I was 4 years old! At that point it was powered by a
3 hp Briggs and Stratton and is a Fox corporation, Trail Bug probably from
the 60's or early 70's. The engine is a copy of a 10 hp Yanmar single
cylinder Diesel engine and the turbo is
similar to the one on my Honda CX-500 turbo motorcycle. The engine runs at 3,600 rpm
max and top speed so far is 39.3 mph.
Here's a description of 2 stroke & 4 stroke Diesel engines:
Duramax Diesel Grand National CLONE
This is actually an Oldsmobile chasis that was converted into a Grand
National looking Buick. This car is powered by a 6.6 litre Duramax Diesel
engine. This car is sick, I do not own it unfortunately...
Camaro 6.5 Diesel Turbo
Old setup. Idle/Walkaround Vid finished turbo system
6.5L turbo Diesel Engine
rear mounted Hx-35W turbocharger
Mechanical IP and much more!
this is how I chose to "go green"
Explanation of my Diesel Minibike
It is proportionally larger than a regular minibike. It's powered by a 4.5
hp Chinese clone of a Yanmar diesel engine. Later I made it all street
legal and it looked like this.
