Ocelot Twin-engine Scrambler

 From Motorcycle; Aug. 1963.

This scrambler was the development of racers Frank Thiem and Alden Ames, it featured power from twin fancooled West Bend go-kart engines and no transmission. The front suspension is leading link and the rear suspension consisted of a single shock, singlesided swingarm. Bendix brakes were fitted front and rear.
Pretty advanced for 1963 but perhaps just a little bit too weird.

They were very fast on a smooth track but a hilly track would kill the clutch!! I still have the brochure they sent me in 1963

I knew the designer-builders. Where did you find this picture. Thanks, Dan
