No proprietary motorcycle parts were to be used unless they were deemed un-improvable! The idea was to build a steam powered Rocket bike with a potential speed of 200+mph, which had never been achieved before.

The new valves use a completely different concept incorporating bespoke poppet valves, operated by compressed nitrogen. Initial tests using compressed air look very favourable." The ...more
