    I like this one a lot. The hand cranked diesel is an amazing find. I have been on the lookout for one of these engines, just to have something to tinker on now that we can't import the Listeroid type of diesel engines. Thanks for posting this.

    Looks like it would climb a tree or at least knock it down. Cool!! Reminds me of a Rokon, Mad Max style.

    First thing I noticed...That'll get about a half-mile down the road before it breaks! Love the concept, though.

    Yeah those old Rokons ruled 2 wheel drive and could carry extra fluids of fuel in the wheels My cousins in Co. had one they called the mountain goat. not terribly fast but man could it ever climb

    Only rode one once back in the day but they would climb pretty much anything while carrying one of it's own and 2 passengers....There are some YT vids on them doing what they do 2 Wheel ATV maximus! Pretty cool machines and probably why they still make them. Dad looked into getting one for some of the places we use to hunt in up in the Yolla Bolly wilderness. Shear, steep with shale but beautiful and Big Bucks. Had to rent a burrow from the pack train guys to get one of dads off the back side of No. Yolla Bolly one time and even the burrow had a hard time.
