"In 1993, stranded alone with a broken-down Citroen 2CV in the middle of the Moroccan desert, French handyman Emil Leray needed away to get to civilization. Using what he only had with him Emil created this motorcycle from his damaged car. It took a little over ten days to build without the aide of a torch or power tools. Needless to say, Emil made it home."
Bonus: His sites in French, which I don't speak, but I think he made a raft-like structure out of the car as well. See the photo montage below.
Below are some other inventive bikes you can expect to find on their site. All of which seem fun to ride (or make) whether you're at Burning Man or not.
The Girl on a Motorcycle or better yet, Naked Under Leather (as the film was called in France), was a British / French film directed in 1968 by Jack Cardiff. The film starred Marianne Faithfull and was due to air at Cannes but due to the May 68 riots it never did. The plot is fairly simple: A woman leaves her husband and zips away on her motorcycle to be with her lover. Plenty of sexual and psychedelic experiences happen along the way.
Nostalgia on Wheels is a website that features nostalgic images of things that have to do with, you guessed it, wheels. It's mostly skateboards, motorcycles and fashion relating to those scenes and it's well worth your time. Below is what you can expect to find.
