Hello All

I am a the new kid on the block to this forum :drinkers: :drinkers:

I would like to get hold of the chap that has built the v twin as I have the same idea but to put in a GN cycle car ( Google Gn thunderbug )

I finished a liberty 27 liter v12 engined Rolls Royce car 2 years ago .. so it needs a baby sister .....

I am looking at building 4 of these engines

regards
