Ive seen a couple of mentions recently of a plan the US Studebaker car and truck company had to make a four cylinder bike using a licence built Sq 4 motor ,coupled to a shaft drive copied from a BMW......a test unit of the motor and trans was built,but the project was shelved for war production in 1940......

Coupled cranks and coupled to a shaft Drive with two changes of direction. Sounds like a nightmare to me. Where would the clutch go? For one thing. Nev
