    To give the guy some sympathy, what was his objective?
    My guess is - he was a young guy (probably a young teenager) who had some inventive thoughts in mind, time on his hands and maybe a spare Russian boxer twin lying around.
    He probably had an idea of using the back end /shaft drive of that as a front end for his own FWD special and used what he had lying around the farm.
    So, with his Dad's welder a hammer and a hacksaw, he gave it a go!
    Good on him, - he had plenty of initiative, maybe he lacked some skills and materials, but he did try and probably eventually moved on to greater things, learning by his mistakes and by managing to withstand the inevitable shit slinging he would encounter as he progressed, becoming stronger for that! ........ as always, I could be wrong.

    Sure remended me of a mountain Goat frame at home pretty sure the front end was similar i think it way have had enterchangable wheels.
    I have no idea what implement the tyres were off but i suspect a rotary How or similar, i think it may have been disc brake front and rear, but the welding was far better.

    OK, ok Ken - I said FWD (meaning Front Wheel Drive!) - now, I think that exonerates me, but ...... What're we gonna do about Husa? (Hooser to you)

    The welding still looks like avian guano on second inspection.

    Although i missed he was also using the top of the fork tubes on the first inspection.

    Reminds me of this

    Pretty sure (but could be wrong) it was a Dutch guy I used to work for, designed the Mountain Goat
    I was told that he, (Harry Zwezerijnen) designed the Mountain Goat and also the first monsoon bucket for firefighting from helicopters. ....... not entirely certain about that though! -
    someone else may know more!

    Thanks Jan, So do you know if the big float bowls extensions were they extra capacity or were they weights?

    FRITS,
    This thread has been hibernating for some time (over 3 months) and I hadn't really intended to visit it either (I had run out of material) and I think most of us have defected to Facebook), but I felt that I had to show you this, which suddenly sprang up from somewhere - it's a better description of the Veselovsky rotary engine which I tried to describe to you quite a way back and you said you hadn't been able to find it - here it is anyway for you to check out (If you ever happen to be passing here on your way from that evil den ..... Facebook!) Click image for larger version.

    (Oh dear, slight hiccup - doesn't like PDF files! - will try to remedy ASAP)

    Here is a link to the patent instead ......... https://russianpatents.com/patent/207/2078221.html

    Will, the PDF downloaded without problem.

    Is there any interesting discussion on farcebook?

    Good to see that someone looks in now and again! and i didn't expect the PDF to work! - guess Frits has gone on to pastures new now - we may have to downsize here and therefore my workshop is on the way out!
    Unfortunately I normally only use Facebook Messenger now and again to keep in touch with family over there and Aus etc. but seldom talk to anyone about bikes or talk any bullshit as I have a habit of saying the wrong thing - the people on there aren't used to me and I can't be bothered trying to make them understand me all over again, upsetting sensitive souls in the process !
    I find Facebook a bit disjointed and even confusing sometimes - it's so easy to press the wrong buttons and stuff everything up if you're not careful (and there's even more dickheads on there than on this forum!!).
    This thread went on a long time and I enjoyed it, but I guess all good things will end sometime - maybe it will rejuvenate itself - who knows!

    Thanks Will. I check this thread on a daily basis (as I do with Ese, Chassis and Foundry) before I visit Facebook (or Fakebook, or Farcebook, pick your prefered spelling).
    Yes, this Veselovsky rotary engine clearly resembles the LiquidPiston engine.

    Your PDF also offers a fine survey of other rotary engine systems. Thanks again.

    I find Facebook completely disjointed and confusing and I hate being disturbed by Facebook Messenger. But I must admit I met some interesting people there that I might not have met otherwise. Still, I prefer email.
