Someway we’ve got lengthy missed the truth that there’s a man named Dennis Franz on YouTube who builds amazingly cool and extremely AutoCarTechNews authorised stuff. Significantly, this man cranks out scratch constructed engines and every kind of superior junk and we by no means knew he existed. That’s why we’re a pair years late on this specific video that exhibits a 392cc V8 engine that Franz constructed for a bike venture firing up for the primary time. He made the entire thing, soup to nuts and from our estimation it appears to be like and sounds freaking superior.
We’ll present you movies of the completed bike tomorrow however there are some issues that we do know concerning the engine you see right here. The camshaft was modeled after a Briggs and Stratton flathead cam. He made that from scratch. We assume he made the crank from scratch, and he used Honda 50cc pistons with apparently one cc of stroke much less per gap than they’d have had in that manufacturing unit engine.
The consumption manifold is an exquisite factor to take a look at and truthfully each inch of what quantities to a residing and respiratory metallic sculpture is completely unhealthy ass. No, the engine will not be going to make 300hp however if you see it in motion you’ll recognize the truth that this factor hustles the outdated timey trying bike it lives in round with ease.
Nothing like do-it-yourself, residence engineered stuff to make us smile. Boy does this little man sound good.
