1974 Hercules W 2000 - Rotary Power Bike!
« on: January 20, 2008, 04:57:04 PM »
Well, My brother came to visit me and I decided to take him to the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum (http://www.barbermuseum.org/) and guess what I saw...

Wankel Powered, single rotor, air cooled engine, Rotary Bike!!

Here are some pics I took..





















Barber also has 4 x RE 05s which they are restoring as we speak.. They don\'t have ETA on them...

i live about 5 mins from this museum and its definitely worth a visit!! Their collection is VERY extensive!

I remember seeing one of these waiting at the level crossing in Billingshurst a few years hack, great looking machines :)
At the end of the day, it\'s meant to be fun - not a political movement! :burnout
