The 1928 Opel Rocket-Powered Motorcycle

In 1928, Fritz von Opel started experimenting with rocket-propelled vehicles. This eventually led to the Opel MotoClub SS with six solid fuel rockets. "Hey ya'll, watch this!"

Cool, thanks for sharing. The Opel Manta I had in highschool would have been much more intetestig if it had one or more rockets straped to it. Nowaways, Opels are just a GM branch, do not think they still have motorcycles.

I find that one both attractive and repulsive. I want to do things with it that I will likely regret afterward
