Yeah. This is very cool. Add that to my list of bizarre camping units I would love to own, but would lead to divorce....

If anyone has the writing skills, I've got the camera. Let's do a book on the world's most outrageously weird camper type vehicles. A companion piece to Silver Palaces.


Sometimes I wish I were living in the stone age. Then I would know I'm the smartest person in the world.

I wonder what it feels like to be passed by an 18 wheeler at 85mph?

Interesting. Bet it's a comfy drive after the first 300 miles. I wonder if it comes with earplugs...then again for $20k, it should come with another tire up front and 2 more doors!

I doubt mileage was a concern of the design crew, and comfort riding on the couch in the rain seems a little iffy...

I marvel at fact seller stresses existence of both a "water cooled radiator" (as opposed to which other kinds of radiators?) and a "Horn".. With that paint job, including flames, and the unmuffled Chevy V-8, if you need to horn to let someone know you're there it's probably too late...

Ya gotta love the concept and individuality, however, which reinforces whatta swell country we live in.. Where else might someone indulge their fantasies and design, build and ride such a contraption in public??

I like motorcycles as well as the next guy....but this thing is crazy. Seems like it would be a little unstable. And don't you think there is quite a bit of weight on a single front tire. I wonder what the title says?????
