Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Ekaterina Samutsevich were arrested in March 2012 and charged with "hooliganism". If found guilty, they could be jailed for up to 7 years.

And here is a bit more info on that engine:

Wall "Wizard" 2-Cylinder Opposed Engine, designed and manufactured by Elmer A. Wall, Wall's Model Engine Laboratory, Chicahg, Illinois, 1940's. L=8", W=12", H=7"
Elmer A. Wall began designing and manufacturing casting kits for miniature internal combustion engines during the Great Depression (1929-1941) and continued until his death in 1948. Among his designs was this 45 cc air cooled 4-cycle engine with overhead valves. He advertised that the engine was so well balanced that it would "start on the first turn-over if machined properly and that it would idle down to a tick or roar full speed when the throttle is opened."

If you wan't more of the same, go here:

My son and I spent several hours there a few months back. Rode down to Carlsbad from Long Beach on my then new to me /7. The ride back was quite interesting since we got into, and lost in, Camp Pendelton.

In other news, the Germanians* are messing with Bernie, so Bernie is messing back:

* Red Bull Racing are of course Austrian in fiscal terms, which falls amongst the Germanian envelope.

'Perhaps the most famous pulsejet engine is the Argus V1 “Buzz Bomb” made by Germans in World War II. Fuel was sprayed directly into the engine through a 3 x 3 array of nine nozzles behind a valve grid—a direct-injection pulsejet. The fuel supply was pressurized by the tank of compressed air that was also used to drive the gyros and operate the control surfaces of the V1 airframe.

This miniature pulsejet engine operates exactly like the V1. It burns regular gasoline and has a variable thrust range from 1/2 to 6 1/2 pounds. Mike Early developed and built the engine, and made the aluminum castings for the intake. He fabricated the combustion chamber and tailpipe from stainless-steel sheet metal. Early produced approximately 12 models from 1996 to 1998.

Anyone who has ever heard a pulsejet run will not forget the sound. It is LOUD, as it is essentially one long controlled explosion.'

Of all the bikes I would have seen at a classic race meet at Mallory Park over 30 years ago, the pack of late model Scott Flying Squirrels always stuck in my mind.
