DOUBLE ENGINE TRIUMPH       ~ designed & built solely by Rick Walker, BCR Owner

If you thought you could get into trouble with ONE engine, then wait till you see...

Double Trouble!

Here's how it was created...

Over 26 years ago, Rick Walker decided to challenge what he knew about motorcycles.  It took 9 years from conception to the finished product you see below.  Many hours were spent on custom fabricating the frame, gas tank, oil tank, gauge housing, headlight & taillight housing, seat, and switch housing. The frame had been specially designed to hold 120lbs of air pressure, for smooth operation of the air shifter.

Rick's Double Engine was sold in 1995 to a close friend, who featured it in a store window display for 7 years.  

Spring 2012, Rick and the bike's owner, decided the Double Engine needed to be restored and given a fresh look.  The bike was sold back to Rick and the work began.  

The top end was rebuilt, valve guides replaced and the rockers and heads were glass beaded. New pistons were added in the front and new rings in the rear. He sand blasted and glass beaded all the paintable parts, then they were epoxy primed and sprayed with a base coat before creating the beautiful custom paint job on the fenders and gas tank. All aluminum was then glass beaded, sanded, and polished.  The front guard and side panels were replaced with aluminum plates. The final touch was the air-brushed JAGUAR painted on the top of the gas tank.
