Doing my usual ebay cruise, this caught my eye, hey, it would catch yours, too, if you saw a Dodge Tomahawk listed. I started thinking Chrysler put their concept bike out there for sale but then I looked a little closer and saw the word replica. What we have here is a half scale Dodge Tomahawk replica, that’s right, half scale. So how did he fit the V10 in there? He didn’t, he went a little smaller, it’s 249cc.
OK, before you roll your eyes, take a look at this. The builder is obviously a big fan of the four wheeled monster concept bike Chrysler built a few years back and lacking the funds or V10 engine to go full size, he came up with this scaled replica that looks kinda cool. It’s not street legal and only goes 75mph but look at the steering and everything else he had to come up with. It’s actually pretty neat.
He doesn’t show the bike without the bodywork so who knows what it looks like underneath but I give this guy credit for committment to an idea. Very interesting.
UPDATE: The very first comment below points out this isn’t so special after all, it seems they’re actually selling these on Alibaba and they’re called X racers. Alibaba sells practically anything and everything from China, maybe I need to look to see what else is popping up these days. Is there anything the Chinese aren’t copying or making cheap knockoffs of? … Oh well, never mind.
UPDATE 2: It seems the Chinese version is the copy.
