V8? V12? Pah. SIXTEEN cylinders!

Y'all remember that V12 CBX?

As the Midget Circus has just been made aware of by brother "Eric", the guy who made that also built a bike engine by combining four Yam fours.

To whit:


That video was uploaded in 2012, and he said it'd be done in 2 years.
Having the time, as I do, I'll have a look see if I can find what came of it.
In the meanwhile, I've found an article with a bunch of nice photos of the thing in progress:

If you go to the article and pick one of the images, you get a few more in a gallery I cannot link to directly.

Kneeslider seems to have gotten there a bit earlier during the assembly process:

If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

I said I have a big stick.

Unfortunately, this article from 2015 was either rehashing really old news, or the 2 year time frame the man gave in the video didn't suffice.

Some more good photos, though:
