If you’re on know Roadkill Customs, you know we appreciate vehicles constructed by taking components from various vehicles and crafting it all into something unique. With rims from a Camry, a p-trap from a sink, a diesel motor from a cement mixer, this hodgepodge motorcycle is definitely unique, as well as one badass diesel custom…

Sam Turner originally built this amazing diesel motorcycle…

At the heart of the beast is a tiny Chinese Yanmar 840cc direct-injected diesel V-twin engine that was harvested from an old cement mixer. A pair of RHB-31 turbo-chargers push air and fuel into the engine and are kept cool with an intercooler system from a Suzuki Swift.

A hydrostatic setup where the wheels are turned by hydraulic hub motors, receiving power from a hydraulic gear pump from a salt spreader and a displacement gear pump from a log splitter. A pair of 2,500-pound Airmaxx airbags, controlled by a custom-leveling system that gives the suspension nearly a foot of travel.

This bike is now part of the Diesel Brothers toy box…
