Allen Milyard is one of my favourite people.

I have known of him for many years, and still am astounded by his ability, offset by his incredible humbleness.

I had to laugh; here's this mechanical ode to days gone by using the monstrous lump from a WWII aircraft engine as a basis and then sommer has the balls to make his own carbs and alternator... but in amongst all this masterful tinkering, he's got a iPhone charge port!

Epic!
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

The story behind the big V twin he tells in one of his YouTube vids.

That beautiful little 100cc V-twin won an annual high end competition.  He goes up to collect his trophy & is asked what he intends doing next.  Spontaneously he answers "build the biggest V twin bike."

His plan was to use VW cylinders & pistons & heads when he found these 2 cylinders & heads.  The oke who sold them was planning on making a V twin for a Morgan 3 wheeler but it never happened but there were some sketches of what his plans were.

He has done some lovely stuff.  Several of his creations are at the Barber Museum in USA.

Inspirational and scary at the same time. Casually cutting up a camshaft to weld up for the 6 cylinder in his garden with a grinder and cutting out gaskets with a Swiss Army knife then absolute precision when setting stuff up.  Excellent.  The downhill bike he built is also good and I think he is involved in developing a rear bicycle shock along with his son.

Amazing!
Reminds me of my father, in as sense.
I guess it was about 1970, when my dad made us a go-kart using a DKW Hummel 74 cc engine.
Could not find rings for this 2-stroke......solution...just make them on a lathe  :thumleft:

Motor ran forever with those rings  ;D

Watched this yesterday, awesomely cool! Building a counter weight by estimating the size and ballparking the weight. Then building carbs too. Holy shit, this guy knows his stuff.
