Somebody needs to give that guy a gunny sack party.

Those Merlin engines are super rare and sought after by WWII aircraft restorers. What a friggin waste!

I'd be more inclined to install a turbine, a steam engine or something like this.

For the skip readers, it's a German motorbike powered by 24 chainsaw motors. That's 24 pullcords to pull to get 'er running.

The tech team gets it started, but by then, the driver seems to have vanished.

Yeah,

I dunno, I'm having trouble envisioning a drive train for that. I suspect it might just be 24 chainsaws mounted on a frame with no drivetrain; that's why we never see anyone climb onto it and drive it down the street.

Just leave the centrifugal clutches on and open the throttle when you want to go. No tranny.

Yeah,

I understood that; I'm sure most of us built at least one minibike using an old washing machine clutch when we were kids, but something like this would need a serpentine that is so long that you'd need half a dozen idlers and tensioners. Just doesn't seem practical to me. I'm not going to believe it until I actually see a video of someone riding it.
