And the three aren't necessarily as un-related as they appear at first glance........

If he had only put the motor from a Boss Hoss in it, he would have had something.

Yeah. Wouldn't it have made more sense to put the engine and gas tank in back? I mean, think of the weight savings (not to mention radically less mechanical loss) you'd have by not having that shaft running the length of the bike. That would also lighten up the front end [sic], and give it quicker steering. And next time, the frame should be twin-spar alluminum--ya' know, for stiffness. (Just imagine for a moment.) Finally, he ought to have powered it with a Jap 600cc engine.

He couldn't find a long enough throttle cable.

My sources from Russia tell me Oleg "Leshij" Rogov got his nickname from the sound he made when he was sucked into the Motorcycle With The World´s Biggest Carburator he was building

Well, there's several Chrysler products I can think of that you could run on biodiesel already. Jeep Liberty CRD? Dodge Ram with a Cummins? Shoehorn a Cummins into an old Dodge Aspen? And rumor has it the European-only 300 Diesel is coming here, too.



And yes, I know I'm a weirdo for even thinking of the Cummins diesel into Aspen swap, but the "mad scientist" part of my nickname is there for a reason.

At least the rider won't need a wheelie bar.



Oops. Shouldn't use the word "bar" around anyone who would ride such a thing.

Somewhere in Russia, someone's antenna tower is missing.

It would be cool to have a car who's exhaust smells like french fries.
