Something I've been obsessed with lately: Diesel Motorcycles

There has always been a "steampunk" tradition for this type of thing - homebrewed and SLOW AS H-E-double-hockey-sticks. But now there are some real industrial types getting them off the ground building awesome TORQUE-MONSTERS:

Thunder Star 1200 Diesel by Star Twin

Uses a Euro 3 cylinder VW TDI engine, JAMS with CAD-developed cases and transmission to make the fastest EVER. Sweet. Can you say BIODIESEL motorcycle with 100 mpg and 120 mph top speed? RAD.

Couple other DIESEL bikes that rock:

Neander Turbo 1400

HDT Bulldog

Let the Games begin!
