Got this in an e-mail, just thought the VN750 folks might like it, since the Kawasaki engine seems to be one of the engines he uses...










Yes, these little beasties are street legal. They run on either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and co-opt vintage bumper car bodies into the most awesome form of mini-car we've seen in a long time.

There are several of these little monsters floating around California and they're all the creation of one man, Tom Wright, a builder on the outskirts of San Diego. He figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park needed a more dignified end than the trash heap. Tom originally powered them with two cylinder Harley Davidson Motorcycle engines but they rattled like crazy because of the two cylinder vibration, so he replaced them with four cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750's and a couple have been measured at 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast in machines with such a short wheelbase.

By the way, they are said to be almost indestructible in accidents! (Not sure I'd want to test that part out.)



Have a good one...Old Dog...
