Mebbe the meh-osity quotient is lesser. From what I think I read on Killboy, that Taurus front clip houses an entire Taurus engine and drivetrain. And the bike nose was grafted onto it.

The first pic of that trike was a real WTF???

I saw a picture of a similar contraption, only it was as a trailer.

A guy with a Honda Civic converted to electric car wanted to go to an EV-meeting several hundred miles from his home, so he took another Civic with auto transmission and cut off everything behind the door posts and welded on the rear panel.

The trailer could then push him and his EV to where he needed to go, independently of battery limits.

Right up to the time you hit something, and the engine and transmission kill you, if the impact didn't.

I believe it is a female rider on the other bike, so maybe not so much enjoyment of the view.

the blacked out lights. do they allow light through when they are on or is on the one light clear?
