Is there no Bugatti enthusiast out there who wants to makes some of these little engines? For the T68B I have 40 of the original patterns.They would make wonderful paperweights on an executives desk.

Would be a nice project to build a series of T72's.

And; does anybody have drawings of the motorcycle the T68 engine was tested in? Apparently it was of Bugatti's own design; it would be nice to build a replica of that!

I doubt that Bugatti made the motorcycle that the engine was tested in.There is a photo somewhere in a book,does anyone have it handy to show us?

Last picture: Would that be 370cc? I doubt it...

Also, in a Bugantics, there is a coupling that connects 4 type 69 engines together. Supposedly being the type 70.

Photo album includes Type 69 album showing motorcycle and powered cycle.
Obviously wrong. Does anyone know whether Ettore actually used this potentially ribald number ?

The last picture is of (I believe) the T65, which is a 50cc bicycle engine. In some publications, this is erroneously called the T72, but it obviously is not. See:

http://www.bugattirevue.com/revue19/bikes.htm and
http://www.bugattirevue.com/revue29/t72.htm.

The Type 70 was an X-configuration aero engine, probably 16 cylinder, 18.5 litre.

I have patterns for the Type 70 if anyone wants to build one....

As an owner of vintage motorcycles and ex owner of a Koehler-Escoffier of 1936,I am obviously interested to know who made the motorcycle used to test the T68b motor.The engine is not at all clear in this photo,but the motorcycle is very clear and not known to me or my french m/c friends.It appears to have late hydraulic forks rather than the prewar type.Which seem almost curved or is this my eyes playing me up? The handlebars also seem strange.Could Ettore have designed and had built the entire bike?

The forks look curved to me as well.

I will look up the Bugantics, which show the 4x69 engine (or was it 68?) config.
