Coming from LEONHARDT in Germany GUNBUS is a very interesting project: "The idea to design an own vehicle - with all the consequences - is growing since quite a while in our minds. The question was, what kind of a vehicle (or even an aircraft) it should be. It should be something that is not available yet, where we got the possibilities to make it, that is ambitious to technics and creativity and that is correlated to our own history. All these things made us design this motorcycle. The cylinders, taken from a 9cyl. radial engine, and their cylinder heads in that size with their filigree cooling fins appeaered to be technical beauties. After having designed the needed crankcase and the auxiliaries the size of the motorcycle was given. To get a proportional tire size we took tires of a Boeing 767; load and speed index of these should be high enough by far, but more important was that Aircraft tires have got the right - round - profile." See pictures and also watch out DBBP Cad Bikes.
