Tjitze always wanted the Morbidelli 850 V8, but couldn’t afford it, so he made his own  V8-powered motorcycle.

Tjitze doesn’t have any formal training in mechanical engineering, since he is baker by profession!! So about 2500 hours later, he finished the bike you see here.

He put together two Honda 400 inline-fours to make his V8. This engine, which supposedly makes 120bhp at 10,000rpm has been mated to a Moto Guzzi gearbox and driveshaft. And yes, the bike actually runs. We’re truly amazed…
