Gas turbine bike.

Someone on an electronics forum built a jet tubine from a turbo. He fueled it with diesel and started it with propane. He was asking for a PWM circuit to control its fuel pump. He said it didn't have a big flame coming out like I thought it would.
I think he used it on his go-kart.

I saw a small model airplane fly extremely fast with a tiny model jet turbine that costs a fortune. It even sounded deafening like a real big jet plane. ;D

What do you think would happen on your bike if you were pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed and pushed ...?
Could you fly? ;D

Hi Guys,

Don’t you just love that lawn mover? ;D I know I do! ;D

Some useful turbine sites:

This is what they do on New Zeeland: http://www.asciimation.co.nz/beer/
Here you can order turbines for your bike: http://www.swbturbines.com/model_turbines.htm
This is puls jet : http://www.aardvark.co.nz/pjet/

BTW I know at least two easier ways to keep my beers cool! 8)

I have a design for a bike and a design for a turbofan and last night i worked out how to run duel Turbines.
I wonder what the power would be if the system were put in a robin relient?
Anyway i posted this because i wondered how on earth could an EMS (Engine Managemant System) be built for this thing?

Hi Ante,
I randomly surfed the German guy's turbine site. He and his friend must be millionaire machinists, because they are playing with carbon-fiber turbine blades, ceramic bearings and titanium.
Can you imagine someone flying around wearing one of his "turbine belts"?
Some of his turbines were spinning at 220kRPM! ;D

Imagen running that through a gearbox on a bike?

Hi Audioguru,

Expensive toys but I suppose they buy these turbines as surplus or scrap. A small postage stamp on one of the blade ends will cause havoc and breakdown weighing plenty at these revs! Nice hobby though! 8)

AJB2K3; you have to reduce the RPMs with an extra pre-gearing or you will burn down the clutch! ;D

you would need to veri the fuel flow,
install a pre-gearbox,
All this theory, i wish i had my new shed to start build this.
BTW how do jet get ther turbofans to spin-up? i must me missing that bit.
I was gunna run 2 through a driveshaft. So far machincaly that two diffs and 2 gearboxes needed just to get an output.

Why not use a turbo system from a smashed car like the other guys?

Because the turbos are nicked before the cars get scraped or have a chance of being scraped !!!
Whe have a saying down here-
If it ain't bolted down its gone, if it is bolted down it takes abit longer before its gone.
damn that was recorded down the road from me.
