well that will be a challenge.

Is the drive side in place or not?

If not, I think I'd just make 2 bikes.

What could possibly go wrong?

Back story needed, of course.

I see you're a ECTA record holder, so , is that what this is going to be used for ?
I'm old enough to have wittnessed the Golden Age of Drag Racing when multi engined bike tore up the track.

Yes, LSR... The bike was never run... I believe modern tech inspection might frown on stretched stock hardtail Triumph frame.. Things have changed in since dual engine Triumphs were kings
I'll fabricate a frame and use a 4 speed Harley box and clutch..

It'll be built within a year.And there will be lot's of photos... Base cost estimate is at least 8000 bucks for the two engines and drive line doing all the work myself except for engine machining and balancing.Probably another 2 grand for frame ,tires, brakes etc.. My rider will front most of the cost. I know how to build reliable 60 HP Triumph 650's like in my current LSR Triumph. 110-120 HP can push a naked frame properly ridden bike in excess of 160 MPH in a standing start 1-1/2 mile.
