What a mess this once nice MR2 has become. The idiot who tried this so-called modification cant finish it, he's calling it an unfinished project.
An MR2 with two motorcycles on its buttocks. That is correct; wearing a Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R on each hip, the 1990 Toyota MR2 is in Roundup, Montana. USA
An optimist may describe the potential benefits of the design. The wider stance could make for enhanced stability in corners, and extra space between the two bikes might offer bonus storage if it’s not fully consumed with mechanical bits.
Though clearly a work in progress, the MR2’s blue, white, and red color scheme scores high marks for patriotism, for Americans anyway. That bucket seat looks comfortable, and the MR2 should respond well with more than 300 horsepower on tap, 160+ from each bike. Hopefully, the not-identical bikes (one 2004
and one 2007
) utilize the same gear ratios and wheel and tires sizes.
A carefully-laid fiberglass hatch seems to have given way to a jagged and gaping hole, perhaps from frustration or unfortunate accident. The listing states “needs gear reduction,” but really, how hard can it be to make two motorcycles instantly and reliably select the same gears or neutral at any given speed and accelerate simultaneously using a Rube Goldberg-approved nest of rods and levers?
