I Don’t Know What This Thing Is, But Damn I Want To Ride It

Posted in Bizarre, Cool Stuff, Videos by Kurt Ernst | October 15th, 2011 | 6 Responses |

I’m normally not a fan of trikes, but I’m willing to make an exception for the utterly insane beast in the video below. Since the video comes from a Russian-language site on You Tube, I can’t offer any details (since my Cyrillic is more than a little rusty). Still, judging from the passing traffic the video was shot in the United States. I’d go one step farther and say it was filmed in New York.

I have no idea if this thing is even street legal, and the wheelbase combined with the small front tire(s) would make it a handful to drive in anything other than a straight line. I’m guessing that’s where the rear wheels come into play, since instant oversteer is just a whack of the throttle away. I’d never want to own anything like this, but I’d sure as hell enjoy an afternoon to play around behind the tiller.

    A sculptor by trade, Frogman Tim Cotterill brought his trike design to Blastolene, the same folks who built Jay’s Tank Car. Now the powerful and eccentric Rocket II Trike is on the road, powered by a blown Hemi V8, which generates over 1000 hp.
