A connecting rod from a Honda RC166, a bike produced for the Isle of Mann TT.

A 250cc isn't the type of engine capacity that gets many riders excited but when you start listing some of the RC166's specs such as its 6 cyl engine, 6 carbs, 64hp and 7 speed gearbox that is capable of 18,000 RPM, things get a little more interesting."

The Story of Gasoline. Pull up a chair, I mean the comfy one with all the pillows. 43 silent minutes about Gasoline according to 1928. I didn't watch all of it, but I enjoyed browsing through the film; it must have took quite some time to put all of this together.
Reel 1, crude oil is pumped to a refinery where gasoline is extracted by distillation.
Reel 2, further distilling removes impurities from crude gasoline.
Reel 3 consists mostly of laboratory tests of gasoline. Shows transportation in barrels, ships, tank cars, and trucks.
