Jet Powered Scooter

at 6:21 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking

Well this is one way to get a bit more speed out of a moped!

“Here’s my wife’s Honda Metropolitan scooter. She wants it to go faster than 40 mph. So I have these two little JFS 100 jet engines and I am thinking how to put them on the scooter. Engines are 50 lbm each so weight is an issue. Will probably use air-start with a carbon fiber tank of compressed air. That saves weight since batteries will then not be needed.
Looks cool from the top. Will want to make aluminum housings to go over the engines just like on a DC-9. ”

    Where can I get jet engines?

    As for how to mount them, at 50lbs a peice, I would personally concider mounting them like the old vespa side cars. The extra wheels will help with stability and perhaps you can design it to detach for when you dont need (er… want?) them.

    Yeah, um, I don’t know if this is gonna pass california emissions. 🙂

    if you really loved her, you would have left the power turbines on the JFS100’s. 200 shaft horsepower to the rear wheel would give her the thrill of a lifetime. JFS100’s make wimpy turbojets

    Looks fun but be sure to stretch the frame a little, or put wheelie bars on it.

    Maybe you need to put a wheel under each engine to stabilize it lol!!!
