Micke Fredriksson of Umeå Sweden, decided to build a 3 wheeler powered by a GSX-R1000 engine. Last year he completed his project and has since removed the rear section and converted it into 4 wheel configuration. Depending on the angle, it looks pretty good, though from some angles it doesn’t flow quite so well, but the real interest here is the amount of engineering and custom building done. The trike was fully road legal and the car is intended to be the same. Performance from the trike was 0-120 mph in 10 seconds and over 1g lateral.
The engine received a turbo with a fully custom intake and intercooler setup. A reverse gear was fashioned from an electric winch motor and some added gearing. The body was built up from scratch, first carving the plug for the composite covering and then making all of the pieces.
I like the guys who decide to build something and then do it. Need a piece? OK, let’s make one. Cool.
Thanks for the tip, Mark!
