Most Insane Hemi V8 Motorcycle Trike

A bodywork out of a Sci-Fi movie for a trike powered by a blown V8 Hemi engine. The concept comes from a guy called Tim Cotterill (made his money selling bronze frogs!) assisted by engine builder John ArruzzaΒ  and Michael Leeds for fabrication & assembly. Well over powered, ugly or brilliant? I let you decide (but why did the cute girl riding behind Tim disappear as soon as he entered the tunnel with his Rocket II trike? Fell over?) Thanks Troy

    Impressive especially the skill factor of him leaning while he steered thru the curves, you might be right she might have leaned over to see why he was leaning and fell off. LDS

    Wow! A trike I might consider!

    Eh, I liked it better when it was the Peterbilt that Jesse James built on Monster Garage, but it’s a nice homage to the original design…….

    Nice, but as for power, well, we’ve had a road-legal jet trike here in the UK for years. πŸ™‚

    Pretty artsy-fartsy bike(?) ride. Should be a shoe in for “fastest” at the local tractor pull assocation meet. Looks like that’s where the design came from. Nice fab work though.

    What the hell? This guy must really weirdo! But I like the entire project.

    Boy, Oh Boy, Listen to all you Judgen Mother F_ _ _er’s. I’m jealous of the Dood that can afford to Build the Trike, I’m jealous of the Dood’s who did the Engineering, that Trike ran so smooth, the Driver could have rolled a Doobie at a 100 mph. For the Nit Wit, Brit running that Jet Legal POS that you’re talking about is about as dependable as the Jet Built Cycle that Rossmeyer had Built over 2 Years and a $300,000 + POS. I wonder where that Bike is collecting dust????? The only part of the whole piece that I find hard to believe is Him running 200 + with the Full Force of the Wind on His body, without a Sheild or anthing holding Him Down. He had to have been strapped down at least.

    Hi Blue, are you going to feature this trike in your magazine, and maybe show the CBX again after 20 years..
    This is every thing a motorhead stands for, speed, engineering, a Supercharged V8 and even a chick thrown in, I’ve just wasted another 10 mins watching this again. Must get me a V8 trike and an empty desert highway.
    ride safe.

    Awesome Design! Nice sound. I would love it to bring it to Europe.

    I’ve met Tim a couple times. I knew he was a biker, but I met him through his artwork. My wife and I took his logo off a t-shirt, I turned it into a file her sewing machine could understand, and she made some wall hangings out of it. One of which we gave to him, and he was nice enough to autograph the one we kept. Also, we’ve got several of his frogs sitting around this house. Makes me glad to know what he’s been doing with the money we’ve shoveled his way.

    I thought Tim was pretty cool before seeing this. Now, you’re the Man, Tim…or rather, The Frogman.

    Later,
