That's the one he built around two pots from an Aero radial engine I think, I saw a program on it a while back.
An incredible machine with a proper drivetrain laugh2 the man is an engineering genius. He often does some work for Henry Cole on his programs and you get a glimpse of his workshop and talents.

Now had he have designed and engineered the new three wheeler I'd be signing up right now for one.

This man (Allen Millyard) has done some incredible bits of engineering. Look up his projects on youtube. A very gifted engineer.

If anyone hasn't seen the youtube videos, they are worth the time.

Part One:

Part Two:

There are several others but those two are a good start.

(Edit, not sure why the tags appear, but the links still appear to work anyways.)

Power corrupts. So my M3W is corrupting absolutely no one.

Brilliant engineer. I was more impressed with his Velocette V twin creation though using parts from two 350cc engines. Very full description here. It's been done before with two pushrod M series engines (Velocette Vulcan) but a greater achievement to my mind with the obstacle solving and electrics upgrade.

+1, just wish I had even a small percentage of his engineering skills.

I don't think he can fit in the three-wheeler.

The 42lbs crank of the X-Wedge almost sounds light compared to 107lbs for the Millyard.....almost.
