Crazy Ideas Competition!
« on: July 23, 2010, 01:44:37 PM »
Here's an idea.  A while ago, there was a contest to see who could come up with the most interesting uses for a Chrysler 426 Hemi, and I think it would be fun for us to brainstorm creative or unusual applications that would be improved by the two-stroke engine.  If at all possible, write your submissions in the voice of an advertisement.

I'll start this off with something relatively mild and traditional.  A two-stroke wheelchair!  Perfect for anyone who has gone over the bars just before an unfortunate landing, or found themselves caught unawares by their new 450F laying down a thick dose of engine braking in midair whilst attempting to jump a triple.  With this device, even Steven Hawking can know the pleasures of roosting a new Marianas Trench, or rolling down the sidewalk on a wheelie.  Base models come with a kick-start, electric start optional.


Is this Maico a 440 or only a 400?  Well in all the confusion, I forgot myself.
But considering this is a 1978 Magnum, the best-handling bike in the world, you have to ask yourself one question.
Do you feel lucky, punk?

I'll see your bar stool and raise you an adjustable bed.  Build up the revs, pop the clutch, get ready for a zero-to-comfort time of 0.02 seconds.

Would you like the optional wheelie-bar with that?  We also offer paddle- and trials-tires as alternatives to the stock knobbie to suit whatever needs the customer's disability demands of the hardware.

How about a 18" wheel with a wicked Dunlop knobby powered by a KTM-300xc-w engine with e-start & a rekluse auto-clutch mounted on the right side of my brand new oak cane...... ??? I think I could get that to work?!?.. ;D

I almost forgot about this topic.  I was actually thinking just a few hours ago about how I would go about rigging a shopping cart to accept a 490 motor.  You know those little sign things on the shopping carts that tell you not to put your kid in the basket?  Well, I'm not a kid, so that's where I'd sit!

I'm thinking of something a little more covert and practical, a 700c Maico powerplant carefully wedged into a Vespa scooter with necessary chassis updates. Call it a revenge of the nerds weapon.

A 2 liter V-8 2-stroke engine is my idea of fun, that's 8 CR250 or KTM 250 cylinders. Now I just have to find a shit box car to dump it in.  :P

Or I could use 125 cylinders and get a 1 liter V-8. That would be nice in a prototype racecar if rules would allow it.  8) Is it crazy yes, but is it impossible.. hell no!!
