I wonder how hard it is to sync both engines together.

I've seen a 24 engine bike:

Those tractor pull rigs was the first thing that came to my mind. And I always wondered how they synced everything.

Check this 1 out. The throttle cable nightmare.



This 4-meter-long motorcycle was constructed by German comic writer Roetger Feldmann, ("Broesel") and is powered by no less than 24 chain-saw engines coupled together. It is called "Dolmette", as its 24 single-cylinder two-stroke engines are taken from Dolmar PS7900 chain-saws. The result is a total of 1900cc, and 170 HP at 15,000 rpm or 260 km/hr. (161 mph) Whether the bike has actually travelled at that speed is currently unknown. It has a Harley-Davidson 5-speed transmission.

I saw one at Gibralter last year. Thought they were side by side instead of one in front of the other and done by some local guys. Think it put out about 300 HP. Don't tell me I'm full of shit or I'll have to spend the rest of the night to prove I'm right. Just say , yea seat, I saw it, it was awesome.:D

I didn't inderstand Charlie Brown above but I think they're tits! Lots of 60's and 70's drag bikes were built with twin 2-cyl. mills because the displacement wasn't available in a single jug. Someone has a twin Trump shop bike available right now. I've seen a couple of twin Ironheads and Shovels for sale in the last couple of years. Who knows, could be the next beach ball tire!

Here's a pretty good thread on 'em: http://www.jockeyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=66727
One that was for sale:

Harley also did a Double-Engine Dragster in 1990. It was on my Harley a Day Calender on Monday.

Lots of drag bikes in the '60's and 70's. Flyrite or SPS did a conjoined engine chopper that was up for sale recently. ~$30,000 as I remember.
