Oh good lord...

Note the lack of engine in that motorbike.

Which means they're using the engine in the (presumably front-wheel-drive) car.

Oh good lord...

Sweet! I love the Celebritrike, the chipboard is a classy touch.

Then there's always the classic Red Porsche Killer:



Apparently that bike spawned a whole wave of outrageous bikes, like the world's only 48-cylinder motorcycle:

That outrageous site had a bike made from 24 chainsaw engines. People are just weird.

Is that a gear stick where the engine should be on the first bike/car?

I'd love to know how that second rotary engined bike manages engine torque! Still want one though.

That's a radial engine, not a rotary.

Yeah, but as any Guzzi or BMW rider knows, when you blip the engine the bike tries to lean. Accelerating out of a turn on my tuned R100CS was a ballet involving a rising rear end and a twisting front. That was only 1000cc and 75 hp.

That second Rotary must try real hard to flip the bike like a tiddley-wink every time the revs are increased.
