Submarine Sgt. Pepper´s (for Sale)

On one side we don’t want to sell this fine sub. But its for sale because that would help the Euronaut and other underwater projects financially.

The sub is perfect for lake diving. Due to the lack of freeboard, open sea operations are only possible from a ship with crane capabilities.

The new owner/ operator should be not larger than 185 cm/ 85 Kg for access and trim reasons. The new owner/ pilot will get a training from us.

The asking price is €24.000 including the trailer. Contact us →

Motorbikes

The motorbikes are no part of the company. The 2 stroke Suzuki’s were first used as daily transport and later as classic hobby bikes. There are some links however..

How we got to the impractrical name “AiResearch”; in 1997 I got my hands on a Airesearch gasturbine. I build the turbine in a Suzuki motorbike which was also named to the turbine engine make. The name AiResearch was adopted for the company as it was not in use anymore by the turbine and turbocharger manufacturer. It was the first wheel driven turbine bike in the world and still running 60.000 RPM!

The Suzuki GT 750 evolved to a classic racer.  I developed special parts like cylinder head inserts and reed valve boxes for it.
