From The Netherlands with Steam

René van Tuil, Revatu Customs, is based in Eck en Wiel (the Netherlands). In addition to customizing and maintaining Harley-Davidsons, the René is fabricating one-off custom bikes of a special kind.

This man has also built a pea shooter based on a stationary engine.

A second motor that he participated with in the AMD World Championships is a massive custom bike based on a water-cooled marine diesel Arona.

Revatu Customs unveiled Black Pearl, a motorcycle powered by a functioning steam engine.

It actually works like a steam train, with the rear wheel driven by a huge crankshaft.

The term steam-punk is certainly applicable on this wicked machine! This short film shows you Revatu Customs and hear how the marine diesel bike is pounding!
