Unique! Looks like he has it arranged so he starts the rear engine, then engages the pto to start the front engine?

That's a nice looking tractor. I would like to see it pull against a single engine. Some of us are old enough to remember people like Tommy Ivo who had a dragster powered by 4 Buick engines. I've always liked to see things with more than one engine. Like the others, I would love to hear it come to life.

pretty neat. If I'm not mistaken that exhaust tip and the chrome shields are off of a Honda Shadow ACE (single pin vtwin). I had one and they are carberated so i would back the idle set screw out so that it would just barely stay running. patato patato patato

Unfortunately you can't do that with an EFI Bike. :mad2:

We use to do the same thing with the old Harley's.
