But How Does it Actually Steer?

,

TMC DUMONT is equipped with a 300 hp Rolls-Royce Continental V6 engine from a 1960s aircraft and fully leaked 36 inch wheels. I have no idea if it can actually turn and riders should be cautious as that back wheel is frighteningly close! It’s impractical, it’s ambitious, and I think it’s awesome to see a crazy concept brought to life and actually ridden.

No room for a passenger, and, boy! you better not lean back.

Bet nickles against donuts that it’s a flat six. Continental (and licensee Rolls Royce) didn’t make a V-6 aircraft engine.

But ‘V-6’ sounds soooo cool, right? And facts are pesky things.

So cool.

Mostly Cajun, you beat me to it. That’s obviously a flat-six.
Hell, with what passes for ‘journalism’ these days, I suppose we can count ourselves lucky they didn’t call it an AR-15 assault engine.

Steer-Smeer. I am looking for brakes and some hope of some rubber on the road when either the brakes or throttle are used. Or maybe a drag-chute and ejection seat.

But it would look fantastic in a music video!
