Renjith Rao, one of The Kneeslider’s readers in India, has taken his Suzuki AX100 single cylinder 2 stroke and turned it into a parallel twin. The crankshafts are mechanically connected inside the joined cases and run at 180 degrees. Though a 200cc engine may be small over here, it’s a big jump from the small displacement engines of the type common in India.
The appearance of the engine after all of the work is pretty clean and is one more indication that builders with their own idea can do some very nice modifications as long as they start with sufficient motivation. Ingenuity doesn’t require fully equipped machine shops, it requires ambition and perseverance. Nice work, Renjith!
