Syko machine!


Here’s something you don’t see every day, a Steam powered land speed record motorcycle! I came across it at a Rail exhibition I attended through work, pictured here with designer and rider Graham Sykes. (Nickname: Syko!).

It was beautifully engineered and obviously a labour of love, so I sought out the designer for a chat. Graham was obviously passionate, answering all my questions even though it was the end of the day. It was great talking to a like mind and sharing ideas. Contact numbers swapped and ideas for the future.

(Although to be fair this project is much further on than mine!).

I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of this machine over the next couple of years, well I certainly hope so. Good luck with your endeavours Sir!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
