Actually, three engineer brothers form Punjab built that Gypsy-engined bike. They had originally wanted to get an 800 engine, but the Gypsy engine was more readily avalible.

Adil form Overdrive even met up with them and went for a drive, there was a detailed article in Overdrive too.

That bike was truly a monster!!!

He has not done any speed testing as of now, this is only a 4 month old project from a full time student. He has to submit the project report in 4 days to college.

The battery does not seem the sealed type. So keeping it tilted runs the risk of acid spilling onto one's knee. Four days to submit the project leaves the guy hardly any time for refinement. Come to think of it, if I had set off on this project, I am not sure I could have managed even what he has. Its not just a set of items to be stacked aesthetically. The ride will surely be uncomfortable, yet, good effort, I must say.

Holy Somkes, this guy has used the M800 tranny along with the diff

One flaw is that the puts the engine to one side which means its unbalanced. (like a side engine scooter). Using a typical bike trans in tandem is the way to go.

Good effort. Needs some dressing up. Looks like a 25K job to me.
