The goggles are for the blood and guts in the backwash...

No way. That didn't exist. It's a hoax.

Even if it did exist, what's the steering wheel for?

xoxoxoBruce 11-29-2016 10:23 AM

To swivel the motor.

Gravdigr 11-29-2016 03:21 PM

Brakes? Who needs 'em?

xoxoxoBruce 11-29-2016 03:30 PM

One giant disc brake.

That thing looks scary. Want!!!

I think that "steering wheel" might actually be the brake. And you steer by leaning.

xoxoxoBruce 11-29-2016 05:36 PM

With that prop pulling instead of driving the wheel, leaning may keep you going in the same direction, but leaning. :eek:

Looks top heavy. More of the mass, the guy's torso, the motor, all above the equator he's riding on.

Still, unbelievably cool.

Good find. Lots of info and design variations on imgur

Gravdigr 11-30-2016 02:35 PM

Wow, those three-piece pushrods couldn't have had much of a lifespan...

I think that was designed with drag racing in mind so they wouldn't have to. It was the only way to get up through the heads, and the reason he gave it up when Ford came out with the cammer.
