Spotted an unusual bike on Ebay, so thought I’d try and find out more about it.
This particular bike has a 350cc ‘RCA’ engine. As far as I can make out, this is a ‘Seagull’ brand boat engine, note how the exhaust ports face outwards rather than forwards that’s usual on a bike engine. It’s also fitted with an Enfield gearbox.*** UPDATE*** Thanks to a comment below I now know that it is a 'Dolphin' boat engine.
Very neatly done, I particularly like how well the expansion chamber type exhausts fit into the frame. Ebay listing is here. If anyone knows any more about Sprite, RCA, Dolphin, etc, please let me know.
