Rat Bike with Lister D 1936:

The video is interesting! He cooks some hot dogs in the engine's water while he is riding the bike.
People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence

I wonder what the road range is for the water hopper?  Great project.

Nice, I liked the 'Start' button.

Not quire sure of the genre, somewhere between steam and diesel punk I'd guess.

The trouble with sort of totally irrelevant post is that it drags one off down parts of Youtube best left alone and wastes endless hours.....

Good, innit!

When is it going to be on a crowdfunding platform?  At least he's got a functional prototype.

Wow Stef, that is very cool. I wonder if the motorbike part of that combo has an engine or is the whole thing propeller driven by the small radial engine on the front of the sidecar?

Obviously another crowdfunding opportunity.

This could be converted to a jet engine pretty easy and those disk brakes say I'm stopping NOW!  None of that V-8 powered lawn tractor craziness we've seen earlier.

Exactly, LG.

This is more like serious motor sport.....

Quite happy to put wheels on my shed, but I think they are going to need a bigger runway.

Loving the jet propelled shopping trolley, how did they modify it so it goes in a straight line?

I've got a small stone barn, must weigh 25 tonnes or more, once we get it rolling it'll be awesome, well, 'till the first hairpin bend.....
