    That 2CV based thing is cool. Seem it around a lot over the years and it is ridden from the chair with the skeleton apparently riding the bike.

    So He gets to ride in the car and the wife rides outside behind the pig. They must be married.

    It looks like He is getting an ear-full in this pic and cant wait to shut the door . :D



    What kind of vehicle is the hack made from? Looks like that tiny little car that Jeremy drove on "Top Gear"

    He did drive a Robin Realiant in one of the episodes, kept falling over in every corner and was put back on it's wheels by famous English people, hilarious episode :clap

    Honda CB750F Super Sport, which was a handy bike
    in it's time, attached to a sputnick sidecar body on a home made chassis.

    Leading link is also home made.

    This bike beonged to a California racer who used this combo in the Barstow to Vegas and Adelanto races:D.

    Just got her restarted yesterday after a couple of years of sitting idle and plan on a trip up to Willow Springs Raceway for the vintage weekend coming up and then a trip into the mountains above Kernville and Lake Isabella.

    I'll post some photos if anyone is interested

    I'll pack the BBQ and some Rib Eye steaks, maybe a bottle or two of Cabernet.:1drink
