Thanks a lot guys, things are looking promising indeed! The sparks coming from the exhaust are most likely small pieces of ceramic coating from the turbine scroll, I was running a 1000C inlet temp into the gas producer turbine and that is a bit hot even for the coating.

I am not really into naming my builds, but "Nordsvensken" came into mind a couple of years ago while I was planning for the frame jig design. It translated to "The Northern Swede" and is the name of a large Swedish bred working horse similar to an Ardenner.  smiley

Cheers!

Thank you Crackerman, it sure is a great feeling to have built a running motorcycle from a pile of aluminum and CrMo tubing. smiley

Thanks tauruck! Hopefully I will have time to do another test in a couple of weeks where I hope to see a 80-100C drop in exhaust temps, that would call for a beer! smiley

Anders, That's awesome man!  cheers Very happy for you. That's a big step in getting the bike on the track.

As far as the beer goes, I've found that the best beer I have ever had is when you're sitting back with a big smile on your face admiring your accomplishment! Keep it up man, I can't wait to see the bike in person. And better yet, watch it rip down the salt!

I took the engine apart last night to fix the air leak.



It took only two hours to take the engine out of the frame, remove the casing, assemble the engine and install it in the bike again, not bad!



Threw a leg over the bike today, I ran it for a kilometer without problems and it pulled like a train even at 1/3 throttle! As an extra bonus for you guys I tried my best at speaking english. smiley



The temps are still a bit high so I think I will try to figure out a couple of more mods before I take it for a full trottle run, perhaps time to remove the freepower and fit an unrestricted lenght of pipe to the exhaust to see how hot it runs then.

Dodge! Four and a half year led up to this moment, now it is time to get this baby singing at its highest note at the track! cheers

Cheers!

"Hopefully it won't catch fire" Whenever a test drive starts with this phrase you know it's going to be good.  grin

Well done Anders! What you've achieved here is just great, you've built your own turbine, and then the bike for it to power. Thanks for sharing and congratulations!
