Times of “carpocalypse” and “motocalypse” may stimulate your creativity. Tom Wright, a loose builder on the outskirts of San Diego just figured out that the bumper cars of the Long Beach Pike amusement park deserve a more dignified end than the crush treatment.
These little monsters -at this date 7 of them are on the road – are street legal (yes, in California) and are powered by either Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines. They were originally powered by Harley-Davidson engines but were vibrating too much for a pleasant ride. They could theoretically run up to 160 mph (don’t try, they have been measured, not run at this speed) and you will agree that for urban use they look a lot more fun than electric motorcycles. Could also be raced on the track. When Ronald McDonald reads my post, he will want to order one. Can it be a business? (thanks David)
