Extreme Motorcycles

In our travels around the Web today, we stumbled across the top picture of a unicycle here.  Even if it does look a bit like Mr. Garrison’s “It” from South Park, albeith without the uncomfortable controls.

Anyway, that image led us to this ‘Cycles Extreme‘ page, which led us to som information on a motorcycle we remember writing about a long time ago, the Dodge Tomahawk.

What we don’t remember writing about is that apparently, back in 2005, Dodge actually did produce 10 of the 500 hp Tomahawks with the 8.3L V10 Dodge Viper engine, and sold them at Neiman Marcus for $550,000 apiece. While not street legal, the Tomahawk is estimated to go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, and has a theoretical top speed of over 300 mph.  No word on who actually baought the 10 reproductions (which reportedly were a few “trivial” parts short of actually running).

You can also here some guy starting a Tomahawk at YouTube here, although I don’t know what the hell he’s saying.
