The NEANDER 1400 Turbodiesel Monster

History – Rudolf Diesel was the man who invented the diesel engine, compression-ignition motor invented back in the 1890s and the engine has become a mainstay of transport, whether its marine, locomotive, urban transport, road haulage and anything you can think of—indeed, any application where its benefits of 30 percent lower fuel consumption, cleaner emissions and longer engine life, and probably many doesn’t know, it doesn’t have a spark plug.

The cycle parts are conventional, with the parallel-twin motor slotted into a conventional chrome-moly tubular-steel spine frame designed by German custom specialist Gunther Zellner . with the engine underslung beneath. The frame’s fully adjustable Ohlins cantilever monoshock rear end is quite radical by cruiser standards, however, matched to 43mm upside-down Paioli forks up front which are set at a kicked-out 31-degree head angle, with 109mm of trail, resulting in a rangy 1740mm wheelbase. Neander executive Lutz Lester says the company is looking at offering a 1950mm version also, with a target price of $85,000.
