Got Wood

Listed as a One of a Kind work of art, this little woody is a very interesting vehicle indeed. It’s low and long with a pretty decent wheelbase so handling may in fact be quite good. Power and transmission come from a 1952 Ariel Square Four motorcycle with a suspension system that was commandeered from a 50’s era Citroen. The gentleman who conceived this masterpiece was a boat builder in the 1950’s who apparently wanted a different style of hot rod. It looks as though he also wanted to stroke his ego a bit by pimping out his wood working skills.

Don’t get me wrong, it is a nifty little scoot, but it looks a bit dodgy construction wise. Think of it this way though; if you kill yourself in this thing they can use the wood from the wreckage to build your coffin. It’s a total win-win!
