    Diesel TW200

    Hi All
    I am new to this forum. I would like to share my garage experience with you (hope I would not be killed for what I have done to a scrap TW frame). I mounted a 418 cc 6.5 kW chinese diesel engine with a Comet 40 CVT and 2 jack shafts to a TW frame. Result: Still early days but I am very exited with this combination, first 150 km trip at around 75 km/hr give over 70 km/litre. top speed 105 km/hr and still engine revs left. please let me know your comments. regards from South Africa.

    Welcome to the forum. I’d like to see pics of that too. Maybe even a video. You’ll fit in well here, thinking outside the box like that.

    I bet that will tractor up anything. I think I'd wear thigh high boots with that open pulley. You filled up every space it looks like. Great job.
