Yeah, it's real all right. Only 98cc. The story behind it is amazing, this guy is not only super talented he's totally focussed.

Read all about his engine project with more pics and vids here:

Great stuff but these days loads of people are doing stuff like this

I am working on a Bentley BR2 rotary engine - the type where the cylinders actually spin around a stationary crank. LOADS of work to do though - will take me years to finish!!!

If you thought that V8 was small look at this - also the Bentley.

Link worked fine thanks. Sorry your Codship, didn't realise that this was all old hat to an Enginemeister and Bridgeport Gruppenfuehrer such as your esteemed
self. Will endeavour to find info worthy of your great expertise and knowledge although I fear that this will be the Impossible Dream and a Mission Too Far.

Apologies once again for bothering your exalted self with such trivia.
