Holy smokes!
That thing looks wicked. However the fuel consumption (1/2 gallon per minute)
makes it not so desirable.

60 lbs of thrust = xxx mph bicycle. Yikes

Not to mention its a pulse jet which will deafen everyone within a half mile.

The Argus non valved type was the motor used in the buzz-bomb or doodlebug during the war... nice gentle buzz when they were at 3000 feet - but you wouldnt want to stand next to one with the motor running.

I have seen similar on Youtube - theyre good for 75mph or so I think the guy said..

Not with me on it !!! I get a bit tense at 40 - LOL

Wondering where you put your feet as the "red hot jet" seems to take up a great deal of room........

Too much flame for me. I can hear the news now...man on jetbike burns down 5 states of forest land. 7 million homeless.
I would like to open it up on the salt flats though.
