Fatasse 1929 "La Foudroyante" with Special Y9 'MaxOverblown' engine
It's all badass Technic, but I felt like it belongs to SteamPunk...
About this creation




This is now revealed in all its Unused Glory: The final -if lethal- MasterWork of Ingenieur Arthur-Robert Fatasse; The only sample known to have survived; The real deal; Ladies and gentleman - "La Foudroyante" 1929 Land Speed Record motorcycle.

























A word on the Y9 Engine.






Y 9 Engine from famous Ingenieur Robert-Arthur Fatasse. Very famous for blowing, scattering, smashing, burning and generally spitting people away when fired.















Y9 engine seen alongside donnor frame from the 1921 Land Speed Record motorcycle "La Foudroyante", also a creation of famous Ingenieur Arthur-Robert Fatasse. This exemple, the only one known to have survived, is said to be still there because nobody dared even only to start it.







THATS ALL FOLKS

Super nifty, and what a great engine idea! I like the way that fellow thinks. =P I also like the huge rear tire and the whole look of the frame.

It's not steampunk, but it is bad a**. I can see why Nick loves you.

A very good looking bike with a clever engine, and lovely looking front girder suspension (version seen in the detailed photos). Splendid

You have great eye for technic . Your motorcycle is wunderfull build. I dislike the color settings. Perhaps you hadn't enough of THE Same color. But THE motor is beautyful. Keep on building like this.

I've met Lola, she looks fab! And not at all afraid of those big wheels... she'd look good on this bike too if she could fit on it and it didn't kill her when the engine started ;-)

Quoting Nick Barrett Brilliant. A unique and wonderful machine - great build!
Coming from you, Nick, that's something. (But I must confess I am very much in love with my 'Fatasse'.) Like you, I ended up with this big engine - my 'Y9' - that was cool. At the same time, I was toying around the 8291 'Dirt Bike'. That set was cheap, brought me my first bike wheels, but that design was so boring that I quickly decided that the B-Model was to jump back in time some 80 years. At some point, don't ask me how, the engine and the chassis met, and decided to do something together... Now, I am a sidecar nut (have you noticed?) and so this model is actually unfinished if I don't add a pannier to it. Cheers! Thanks again!

INDEED THE FRONT END HAS CHANGED - but the one with the older, less original forks, is simply a better picture... That front is now fitted to my TrackedTrike by the way, also visible on these fine pages.

Quoting Dan the Man Nice bike! I'm not sure the huge rear wheels looks very 20s, but the unusual engine certainly represents the large amount of experimentation that was being done a the time. Nicely done, anyway, I like it :)
Thanks Dan. Sure such wheel was impossible at the time - and even nowadays, LandSpeedRecord contraptions actually have fairly thin tires, to reduce rolling resistance... But I like to build a background around my MOCs sometimes. And in this case, it's all about "More is Better". Cheers.
