Gentlemen, start your chainsaws

Now that makes for an interesting, although probably a poor handling motorcycle.

Chainsaw sisters used to have a saloon. I think the feds bought it.

Can you imagine having to walk out to the driveway and pull-starting each of those buggers? Plus, the turning radius is probably large enough that you'd need to drive around the block to turn around.

Yup, that's how they do it.

Maybe the bike would have more get up and go with these V8 chainsaws.

Look like 24 of those would be an interesting, although very unwieldy chopper.

At first I was thinking that a V8 chainsaw is going to be incredibly difficult to use, even if they used something as light as one of those 215ci Buick/Rover aluminum V8s. But I see they're basically just dropping the thing onto the log, so I suppose it matters little. It's just even more dangerous.

Dolmar saws rock even though the whole world has never heard of them. Austria! the country in Europe. Think of Olympic skiers and Hitlers birthplace. Really ,really great saws.



BTW this is the full size pic of my Avatar.
