Turbojet powered Honda

Postby WingAdmin » Thu Sep 30, 2010 12:11 pm



I had lunch today at a local Quaker Steak & Lube. Right inside the front door, they had this Honda bike that someone had creatively if not crudely bolted a turbojet engine into. It didn't have any connection to the driveline - it obviously moved purely by thrust coming out the back end. I particularly like the very crude exhaust manifold, made up of a welded box.

I doubt it would start now (I had a close look at it, and there are lots of parts missing), but there is quite a bit of evidence showing that yes, at one point in time, it actually ran.
