Over two years ago, The Kneeslider found a pulsejet powered bicycle on eBay built by Bob Maddox. Shortly after we wrote about it, everyone started writing about it, Bob Maddox got to be quite well known and customers began calling. Bob’s latest creation, actually built for a racer who wants to break 200mph, is a beauty, whimsically called the Harley Davidson SportJet. With 250 pounds of thrust, his initial tests, run before handing over to his customer, show a 0-60 of about 5 seconds.
I like homebuilt projects of all sorts, but when I look at those wheels and tires and think 200 mph, … maybe I’ll just grab some popcorn and watch.
