On the way home from the last GSL in 2019, I challenged my buddy John Teresi to a radial engine motorcycle build-off. Not too bright on my part, I'm not even being close to being as good as John. But what the heck, it's only a model and it will make me kick my game up.
We got our inspiration from a couple of bikes that exist in the real world.
Our buddy Steve Allemand, 3D printed us both a couple of 1/12th scale 7 cylinder radial engines and a bunch of extra parts as well.
So the journey began. You can find the builds on the WIP forum.
Here are photos of the completed bikes.
Here they are together on a base as presented at the IPMS Contest in Las Vegas.
Their next appearance will be at the SoCal Model Show October 3rd and NNL West January 22, 2022.
Thanx for lookin'
