Yep.

JRL Cycles has built a couple, and is selling the radial engines to adapt to your own project as well.

Wow, now that's something I've never seen before. I wonder how it handles with all those cylinders pumping.

It looks pretty cool, if you ask me.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

yeah, I wondered that, too. They've got a B-52 in the background when they should use a Steerman.

I would think that it would keep the bike pretty straight since the motor would be acting as a third gyroscope. Turning would be tougher though but those style of bikes weren't designed to turn very well anyway.

Talk about coming out of nowhere. Now, that's unique. Do they get the engine and just place it in the frame or do they build the engine themselves?

I am getting the sense that they are overhauling old engines. I could be wrong though. This is still kinda new, and their website does not have a lot of info.
