the mills are chained together, then the rear one drives a gearbox ..

here's a dual-BSA :



and this is the driveline from the "Gyronaut", a historic land-speed record Triumph streamliner .. :





and just imagine what This one was like to setup/control/hear .. :

Hi Satan- Each engine runs independantly.They're just hooked together by their drive sprockets.They run the same r.p.m.s as a single engine bike.It's twice the cubic inches but not twice the r.p.m. Does that help any? -Strat

Ok,but what stops one from "over reving" if thats the term
..

yeah, like Strat said ..

the engines are tied together,

think about a bank of carbs on a 4cyl japper .. you pull one carb's cable, it's not going to make that one cyl 'speed up' any in relation to the rest ..

so, whatcha gonna do ..

build a servicar w/2 motors .. ??

hmmm ..

that could be way kool ..

like the trike Ron Finch built around the Rocket III BSA engine, with 3 of everything ..

{goes digging for pics}

<DIGS pics for>
