Not technically about a motorcycle, but this guy has some seriously mad miniature machining skills. I was particularly impressed with how he machined the crankshaft.

Phenomenal!

There was a professional machinist in our model engineering club who built a V-8 engine that would fit in the palm of your hand. The valve stems were smaller than the tolerances that I work to!!!

I can only marvel at true talent! :71baldboy:

If he was a midget, that engine would be about 2.5" long...

If he was a giant, it would power my new 2 wheeld gocart.

Nope. It's running on some sort of fuel.

There's a few more videos of it out there that show it running more clearly.

But even if it was compressed air, that's still amazing machining!

I have to admire anyone that has that skill level they can design, machine and assemble that!!:)
Pretty Friggin Awesome!

You are right. It does run on compressed air. The other video's I saw were of a different, and apparently larger, model engine.

STILL!!!!! :wink: Thats some fantastic design,machining and performance!
I admire the skills!!:biggrin: I confess to having a slight "Shake" in my hands nowadays:frown:, still a pretty good shot with my 1911.....but...harder to hold wrenches steady sometimes.

It is amazing craftmanship. I could not even imagine something like that ever coming from my skills, as talented as I am at walking and chewing gum.

I once built a balsa glider out of a kit, it was a no fail kit, never survived the first flight.
