Which college, which year?

My project was similar, though it was hydraulic! But, didn't come out well. I am from College of Engineering, Trivandrum (C.E.T), Mechanical Engg, 2005 Batch.

Hi KpZen, this is so cool !

I've always derided the lack of ingenuity among the "would-be-engineer" community, commonly found inhabiting our universities. But this project is very encouraging, not to mention refreshing !

Had an idea for a 2-wheel drive motorcycle when in school, but it used splined, contra-rotating shafts, spinning alongside a fork-leg, to transfer drive to the front wheel - meant little compromise in fork, or steering travel.

Kudos to this student ! It takes a lot of conviction, & courage, to invest in your own idea. Can I trouble you for more pics ?

kudos to the effort made by the student. Deserves a pat on the back and some appreciation from the automobile industry.

all those are very good efforts made by our guys but this particular company has already built a refined version of it and has patented too check out this site!

Hey, are you sure this was done elsewhere??

I passed out of HCE, Chennai in 2007, for our final year project, 4 of us made a 2x2 bike.

Our base was a KB100, we used Jeep differential parts for the mechanism. We sorted out all the ratio problems and everything. It worked, but was not very good cos it was too heavy(all the weight on the left) and unrefined. We had to drive it all over the place, but always with the mechanism disconnected(too scared of breaking the mechanism before our profs'd checked it out, also tended to over-heat over long distances. we hadn't developed a housing and lubrication) except on sand. (Yes! we had a selector mechanism as well.. ) On sand it did it's job pretty well..

Arka ( a.k.a ex670c on Team-bhp) of Jeepthrills helped us alot on this project. He introduced us to all his Jeep mechanics at Pudupet, who helped us extensively with sourcing parts and with fabrication. At the end of the project, we took it over to his house and parked it there.

This was covered on 'The Hindu', and we'd also been interviewed by a journalist who wrote for Autocar India.. Haven't seen the article as yet though..

So these guys did it about the same time as us huh? would love to sit down and compare notes.. it's something that's totally workable, but needs a great deal of refining. Why did they choose the KB100 as well? We did it 'cos it cost us just 2 grand...

Ok! this is definitely not the one we built at HCE. we used the half axle-shaft(with CV joints) of a maruti 800 instead of the UJs shown here.. Similar, but a little different.. would be really nice to discuss the pros and cons with the guys who built it..
