Quaiffe makes one as well.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Most of their use is in the UK since bike engine cars are very popular track cars there. That's what they are made for. Off road-nope. I do not know of any inline reversers that will take the pounding off road does to them. I do know of how to do an inline reverser that will though but there is no market for them especially now that SxS's have taken over.

That is not what I was referring to. Before it I designed a planetary in line reverser based on a readily available high quality planetary.
