Flathead 3

Remember the Dodge Tomahawk from the early 2000s? If you don’t, here’s the deal: it was a concept motorcycle with the 500-horsepower 8.3-liter V10 from a Dodge Viper between its front and rear wheels. Consider the trike you see here similar to that…but cooler.

Someone took a large engine – a Ford flathead V8 – and installed it in an attractively simple-looking custom trike. However, even though this bike is a rolling sculpture like the Tomahawk, it’s not just for display only. I’m assuming it’s actually road legal. If not, what a shame and a waste of a great design and a terrific sound.
