Hielscher Steam Motorbike, ready to run

Hielscher Steam Motorbike, ready to run

Ref: HI-010044

Get Your Motor Runnin’, Headin’ up the Highway..
Everyone knows the real star of Easy Rider was Peter Fonda’s ‘chopped hog’ Harley Davidson.
But in a parallel universe? Maybe a steam-powered version like this fascinating model.

Precision in miniature (only 6" long) it’s a piece of exquisite engineering with the designers following that maths teacher’s instruction ‘Please show all working’. In fact it demonstrates the beautiful simplicity of basic steam power.

A dry fuel cell heats the water in the flask and the steam expands down the brass pipe to power the tiny single piston. Finally drive is by belt to the back wheel.

Intricately detailed, note the tiny brass exhaust pipe, it chuffs along happily - supported by its stabilisers - for about 5 minutes per water filling.

Born to be wild...

All kits are fully machined and ready to be assembled!
