Reserve Your Jet Engine Kit!
In an insane twist of events, it appears we're pretty close to manufacturing our first batch of Jet Engine Kits.
After speaking to a UK engine kit retailer, they've asked we reserve a twin jet engine kit and all going well will place an initial order of 25 Kits.
Will post some CAD drawings soon but here's the idea. The pic below is the size we're going for.
Heres a vid of a simliar setup. of course ours will not be a turbine engine and subsequently wont cost over $2000
It will however be self starting and self aspirating and importantly valveless. Therefore NO moving parts. Installed and used correctly, the engine life is effectively limitless.
Initial complete kit price estimate is between 114.37 USD and 171.56 USD however we plan to integrate it so it uses as many parts as possible that are already used for the HT engines. This means the price will be less for those who already have an MB. So far one of the biggest contributors to the price is the need for a fuel pump as we hope to run the engine primarily on either petrol or methanol (although propane and other flammable fuels will also be compatible). A parts list will be published and we'll be open to "pic'n'mix" orders whereby if people find they already have some of the parts the price can be reduced accordingly.
The basic kit will be for one engine mounted behind the rider and over the rear wheel, the "turbo deluxe" kit will include two engines mounted either side of the rear wheel.
If you are seriously interested send your details (Name, Address, Email, MB forum ID, and Kit desired) to @tigertoothbikes.com] when production is ready we envisage implementing a fixed refundable reservation fee something in the region of $21(10%)-$85(50%) with the balance to be paid prior to dispatch.
Thanks chaps will be interested to see the level of response and hear your thoughts.
