Default Chris' Find of the Day: 1974? Triumph? Spitfire? Trike?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-Spit...m=361364090320







There are few cars for which the term WTF doesn't even come close to describing.

This is one of those "cars."

The seller describes it as a reverse trike, using a Spitfire front suspension (and, apparently, VIN tags), a custom frame, and a bunch of motorcycle bits.

The seller has also added a bit of freestyle poetry:

makes children cry
slices deer in half
funky in almost every way
not safe or practical at all


Short of Florida--who will title an ottoman, apparently--I doubt this is getting on the road.

With only a 500cc single, it won't be fast, so trackdays are probably out. I wouldn't trust that frame, either.

What would you do with it?

I would use something like a goldwing engine in this, this is cool!

On second thought, I have a four cylinder lycoming that would make this thing a blast, is air cooled and has enough uniqueness to fit with the theme of this art piece!
