Remember driving the bumper cars at amusement parks? They were so much fun…
Well, now what do you do with old Bumper Cars?
Yes, you read that right; these little beasties are street legal.
They use Kawasaki or Honda motorcycle engines and vintage bumper car bodies to create the most awesome form of mini-car we’ve seen in a long time!
There are seven of these little monsters floating around California and they’re all the creation of one man, Tom Wright, a builder in the outskirts of San Diego who figured the leftovers of the Long Beach Pike amusement park needed a more dignified end than the trash heap.
They were originally powered by two-cylinder Harley Davidson Motorcycle engines but they rattled like heck due to two-cylinder vibration. Tom replaced them with four-cylinder Honda or Kawasaki 750s.
A couple have measured capable of 160 MPH, which is terrifyingly fast for machines with such a short wheel base.
By the way, they are almost indestructible in accidents too!!! J
