Steamer wanted, for a diesel engined bike project, the 885 I am told is an excellent chassis for this type of project.

Does anyone out there have a knackered one that needs lots of TLC? (and a new engine!), if so cash waiting, Thanks.

Any alternative suggestions welcome. :thumb2

Snoopy had an old diesel Enfield conversion that was ready to roll..........He put it on ebay but i'm not sure if it's sold or not!

He may have a scooter available aswell but it would need collecting!

You can check out his diesel conversion here........

Any chance the diesel is a blown 2 stroke? Literally 2x the power of a similar size 4 stroke. Its also very efficient and clean as there are no pumping losses. :)

How about a micro deltic with an epicylic gearbox in the space between the cylinder banks.

Predator Motorsports in Welwyn Garden City have an old 885 Tiger in their workshop right now which has been sitting around for about 2 months. The owner bought it in to try and get it running but it had been allowed to sit for far too long and lacked TLC. It could be a possibility.

Thanks, awaiting feedback from the previous owner. :beerjug:
