Awesome Diesel RAT bike!! .3gp
This MACHINE was seen on Thursday 23rd Sept 2010 at Stranraer port on his way to a bike rally in NI, it's a 1.4L Diesel Escort engine and basically a frame welded to it, here goes a description after speaking to the builder/owner.............. Left handed throttle, left handed front brake, left foot clutch, right foot back brake, right handed suicide gear shift on spanners, (remember it's a car engine and G/box, therefore H box, not sequential like a bike!!) and right handed.... well that's it for the right hand, just the gear shift... Car back tyre and wheel, with shaft drive from the left hand drive shaft with the right hand welded up! The front wheel and tyre from a kwaker of some sort, with drum brake, as i said homemade frame, bars and swing arm. Well, actually it hasn't got a swing arm as such, as it doesn't swing.... the suspension is in the seat, unless you're the pillion and then you've got foam and gaffer tape!!!! And in my opinion the best bit must be the purpose built luggage. Hope you guys enjoy it!
