    Is it necessarily a hoax?

    It looks as though he hooked up two happy times to one output. I can think of a handful of reasons, and there are surely others I haven't thought of, that it might not work well but it looked as though it was actually running.

    Fitting it into a standard bike frame is bound to be a headache.

    Anything can be set up in photoshop but it looks real enough

    It's not a hoax, but it is not yet in production. The crankshaft gears both turn the same large reduction gear. One of the issues is that when the engine is killed, it has been shearing keys....but there are fixes for that. It's a prototype, but real. I have seen it elsewhere with comments from the inventor.

    No doubt he's got two HT's siamesed and running, but the output gear just seemingly connected to nothing looks real suspicious. (in the video, that is)

    Also - the ports on one of the cylinders will naturally not line up. Don't know how he sealed up that joint, but it certainly isn't any good for performance!

    Before I would invest the time to put something like that in production, I would be casting super hisgh quality heads, jugs and crankcases.

    Just a nitpick.... this would not seem to be a V-twin or a V-2.
    I would think it was a W-2, having two crankshafts as it does.

    Still rather nifty though.

    a "W-Twin".........

    I like it.

    It might make even the Harley crowd feel as though they're missing something. Not an easy task.

    The ACME instant holes come in handy for tailgaiters - just flip one behind you and your problem is gone!

    I like what they are up to! The sounds reminds me of the Yamaha RD series motorcycles.
