I found a cool website, Mega Moto... I think you are going to love the variety and unique things they post there, here's a sample

the cool tagline of Mega Moto is : Cars, Trains, Motorcycles, Planes, Airships & Other Awesome Modes of Conveyance
A WW1 mobile carrier pigeon coup... yes, that was the best communication technique they had available in the field of battle .
I've posted somehting about this before, and just can't recall what... beyond there was just one that made it through the years and still exists, was a 1920's car but only on 2 wheels, the little buggy wheels are for holding it up at stops

Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion, one of two to survive, probably number 3 of the trio Fuller made. One was found in the backyard of a Arizona suburb in the early 70's by a Car Life reader after they did a story on the Dymaxions, by a fan of Fullers interesting cars. It wasn't bought by a collector, though Harrah's buyers tried, a couple college students got money together and then let it be shown in Museums in the US... more on this story in another post.

Go see what else they've got!


  1. Nice find. Quite the treasure trove.
    The turquoise deoc styled scooter is called the KYBELE Cyber Scooter and is based on a recent Honda Forza. The build:

    Some other wacky japanese scooters:

  2. the Stileto was a idea of custumizer Ed ´big daddy´Roth

    1. wow.. thanks! Learning something every day!

  3. Great site, thanx a lot! However, please, aside from the photos could you furnish us with info regarding these wild things? Like technical specs, who built them, where were they built, who financed this extremely expensive projects - etc.

    1. only if you are hiring me to do all that, and then sure. If you're paying, I can do that and more.

      But not until you, or someone hires me full time, with good pay, long term contract for about 20 years, with 40 days paid vacation, expense account paid travel for car events, company car for getting to car events, with gas card, new laptop, and various other job requirements, and if you want SEMA covered great, but If not, I'll be on vacation during SEMA - that's simply non-negotiable.
