What's the collective consensus?

That 4 banger photo makes sense to me when you need both rear wheels turning and independently. And to be on the safeside, you'll always have a back up motor in case the main one fails.

And it looks cool like the twin motor dragsters.

Just my two cents, but I'd say start a separate thread in Hacks... or ride reports...
Glad to hear you're feeling better.
Nice pic's, thanks!

Welding

I hope all the welding shots had the ECU's unplugged. No point having a fixed up frame and an FI or ignition unit that's taken it's bat and ball home after having 36V shoved up it.

Most 12V ECU's will run up to 18V and survive 24V (ignition off). Welding with two batteries and the earth clamp nearer the weld than any ECU is theoretically just about safe, three batteries could be iffy regardless.

Off topic: I once dealt with a warrenty claim on a truck ECU. There were burn marks on the case that matched a standard welding set earth clamp. Every single diode inside was blown and the main chips were toast. We rejected the claim!

I would expect that extra motor had some serious oil return issues running at such an extreme angle, and going up steep hills.....boom!!!

more Dnepr

It's an '82 with few miles and paper work in Cyrillic? THere are fewer than 17 numbers in the VIN. So far he's been easing around with a historic plate borrowed from a differant bike.
Now something is amiss in the motor. Sheared key in the cam?
