    The rest of them... Really innovative idea to build this.

    What makes the Dolmette unique in engineering terms is its 24-cylinder 2-stroke power plant. Nothing quite like it has been seen before. The combined power of 24 DOLMAR chainsaw engines is fed into to a 5-speed Harley-Davidson transmission by a series of twelve toothed belts.

    The engine in question is the one used in the PS-7900 professional chainsaw, which currently boasts the best power-to-weight ratio of any professional petrol chainsaw in the world ‚€“ just 1 kg per PS. In standard trim each of these high-performance air-cooled 79 cc units generates 4.6 kW of power (6.3 PS) at 9500 rpm. A specific output of 59 kW per litre is outstanding for a chainsaw, and the secret lies in DOLMAR‚€™s High Performance Combustion (HPC) technology. This term refers to the special design of the six gas exchange ports in combination with the asymmetrical combustion chamber head and the crankcase configuration: the result is a highly efficient combustion cycle with low exhaust emissions.

    For use in the Dolmette the engines were tuned and tweaked to deliver 5.2 kW of power (7.1 PS) at 10,000 rpm. Maximum torque delivery is 5.5 Nm at 7,750 rpm. When all 24 are combined, the result is a 24-cylinder power plant with a total displacement of 1.9 litres, a power output of 125 kW (170 PS) and 130 Nm of torque at the centrifugal clutches

    In the spirit of winter... Probably doesn't mean much to California riders.

    No driveway. No garage. What to do with the bike?

    Picture was taken last summer in front of Toosey's motorycle resort in Dahlonega GA.
