Here’s one for the “HOGS”out there .
Made of pine, held together with threaded rods , so that it can be disassembled and viewed. Turn the kick start and the pistons move ,cams turn ,rockers rock , valves open and close.Many hours of calculating and getting things to work and here it is.

That is just incredible! I’ve rebuilt many quads and dirt bike motors but none made out of wood! :p How smooth does the piston slide in the bore? I’d imagine you waxed the parts up?

What’s the horsepower? Did you have to worry about grain direction in the cylinder walls?

Seriously, that is too cool.

Thanks for posting it.
