Double engine Z1R, even has a center stand.    This is on Mecums website for auction in Las Vegas Jan. 2024. They call it a 73 Z1?
I'm surprised I've never seen this before. Has anyone?  Cool as F!

Sent pictures to Wheelhop and Street Fighter Dave. I’m impressed with the mechanics of marrying the two. Dave noticed the long reach from set to bars. Not doing any serious turns on it that’s for sure

I'm curious how the drives / chains are combined.  Can't really tell from the photo.   
maybe the long reach to the bars is not an issue when you crank the throttle - it probably stretches your arms under acceleration.

It looks to me like there is no "trans" on the front motor and the two cranks are joined behind the custom cover on the generator side?

If you're running a MAC you can take a screen shot (Shift, Command 5) and adjust it to the dimensions you want on the screen.
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Guy - upon looking closer, I will agree with no trans on the front motor.

Cutting off the trans and boxing in the remaining crankcase was the usual mod on multi engined drag bikes such as Henk Vinks Big Spender etc.
The bike in the pic is either a sanitised ex dragbike or at least using the modified front cases and tandem drive from one.

I saw pictures of that same bike about 10 years back. Funny thing about it is you can make the same power with a single worked on KZ engine.
