Car, Motorcycle or Both?


 
Posted by Picasa


I spotted the driver of this vehicle in the Walmart parking lot the other day and he parked right in front of me and went inside. Lucky me--I had my camera! It was a little overcast and about to start raining, so I had to move quickly. I hope that guy didn't get wet on his way home, because I sure didn't see a top for this thing. Maybe he just puts on his raincoat.

It sure is one strange looking vehicle.

cool vehicle!

Now that is pretty unusual. Has to be a motorcycle. If it were a car, it would have to have all the government safety requirements (I think).

I've never seen anything like it! Great for sunny days!

Now, that's different! I've never seen anything quite like that one. It must be a home built one. You can't buy anything like that. However, you can buy a (3) wheeler that's called a Trike. In my riding years I've seen some different kinds of bikes, but nothing like that one! Good idea to take a picture. Well done.

That is so unusual! Looks better from the back ;)

Cezar and Léia said...

Very modern don't you think?
Cool shot Lois, thanks for sharing!

This is certainly an interesting vehicle. Not sure that I'd want one... but to each his own!

James said...

For some reason I get a picture in my mind of a leather clad Santa Clause type in the middle with women in bikinis on each side riding this thing down the road.

Can you picture it? :)

Frank said...

OK, 'fess up Lois. It's really YOUR vehicle and you're testing us to see if we approve. With the right scarf and helmet you'd be a sure-fire killer on this thing. Go girl!!

Never know what you'll see in our town. Did you enjoy the 62 degrees this morning? Brace yourself for the 90's this evening..

Karen said...

Oh, that is so funny. I like the cow catcher on the front..

Layrayski said...

what a cool bike. ive been watching a lot of bike customizing on tv but i havent seen something similar to this yet.

Small City Scenes said...

Very unusual. I didn't see anything like that at the Oyster Run. I wonder if it is hard to steer? MB

Love the reflection post. Beautiful. MB

Jacob said...

He must have enjoyed putting that together...because otherwise, why not just buy a small car (a Smart car, maybe?)...

I'll bet this is a lot of fun, though.

Glad you had your camera, again!

Clytie said...

This is just too cool! I agree with Hilda, though, it looks better from the back.

Pam said...

I have never seen anything like this before but hubby and I sure would enjoy tooling around town in one.
Nice capture, Lois :)

Tabib said...

I never seen that here.
Maybe I can't suggest or mechanic to modified on of their bikes.

~Cheryl said...

That's quite a contraption you captured!

Don and Krise said...

Unbelievable. I was showing my wife and trying to figure out the two seats. Is one for the wife and one for the mother in law?

Tash said...

It's a land boatorcycle! Now that is an interesting contraption.

Rob said...

That's a weird one! You're right, car or bike... From the front, it has something from a tractor or a lawnmower as well. Good thing you were ready!

Eamon said...

I'm not sure how to describe this to someone, if they asked. What an unusual vehicle. A cross between a lawn-mower, an old classic car and a motorbike ... erm, or something like that!

JM said...

What is this??? :-) Is it legal? Really strange!

People do some weird things!
