were Kawa ZXR250 engines not Yamaha FZR250. Which puzzles me as I don't
think I'd ever heard of a ZXR250. It's like he's taken an engine and
bandsawed off the gearbox. It's then bolted on top of the space above
the gearbox, behind the block, of the other engine. The whole lot is
then fitted into a Ducati-esque spaceframe.
Feels like one of those projects that got out of hand down the shed.
Except that he's a "championship winning two stroke engineer" But then
previous projects apparently include a 3/4 scale GP rep powered by a
Honda Nifty and a 14 cylinder 50cc engine built out of 3.5cc model car
engines. That last was aimed at the NZ 50cc land speed record. Mad as a
bucket of frogs?
