definitely a triumph.

if it was a norton he wouldn't need TWO ENGINES... LOL


kick ass though.

hey, how the hell do you make a clutch cable operate two clutches? i have a hard enough time just getting my one clutch and cable to fucking work right.

plus, how do you time both engines? is it two electric ignitions? or can you make one?

Why in the world would you run two clutches? :confused: I'm ASSUMING the two engines are direct drive, 1:1 sprocket and chain job, with a duplex on the rear engine to drive the primary.
Probably two magnetos providing the sparks, just time them 'normally'.

yeah, stupid me.

i'm full time college student.

my brain power goes to reading ancient latin. so after my part-time job by the end of the day i'm in stupid question mode.

right after i posted the question i realized you still only need on transmission, duh, one clutch.

Only one transmission though so it only has one clutch
