[] - Custom Eye Candy: A 7-Cylinder “Radial Nerve”

Click here for full story...

The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) has come and gone for another year of raising funds in support of men’s health – and accompanying the millions of memories is a collection showing off a brain-boggling bike build.*

The “Radial Nerve” is a unique product of Marcellous de la Rosa, a man who tinkered with pony power and created a seven-cylinder UMS radial aircraft engine… which he then plopped into a motorcycle frame.*

The end result is surprisingly sexy:

DFX Moto’s “Radial Nerve” – a 7-cylinder radial-powered motorcycle that got to have some time in the spotlight at this year’s DGR rides. Media sourced from DFX Moto’s Facebook page.The Radial Nerve’s custom chassis also holds a large-and-in-charge fan (to cool the engine), a belt final drive, and panniers sourced from “repurposed Bakelite hair dryer boxes from the 1940s.” A kick-starter gets the thing going, though we’re also told by RideApart that Marcellous also stashed a hand crank in keeping with the vintage aesthetic.*

Why Choose Radial Power for a Motorcycle Engine?*

Click to view slideshow.We did some digging, and apparently, these things are notoriously reliable; visuals aside, a radial engine’s design allows for easy cooling,* generous yank, and, arguably, lower fuel costs/greater fuel efficiency.

A big congrats to DFX Moto for the completion of this build! Be sure to check out DFX Moto’s Facebook page for the full build process.*
