Default UniCar ????

Anyone ever hear of one of these??
I found this in an old barn full of stuff
The guy says that ya take your bikes forks off
and hook the bike to the rear of this Unicar thing
It has a fiberglass body,windshield,convertable top,steering wheel,hydraulic brakes,
all the controls are somehow attached to your bike.
Such as shifter,starting ,etc.
This Unicar looks kinda like a car body,

its a single seater.
I can't seem to find any info anywhere on the net about one.

This guy also has tons of Indian and harley parts
mostly from way back when ,
lots of 45 parts,partial engines,transmissions,etc
none of this stuff I know anything about ,

Sounds like an interesting piece of machinery. Would like to see it if you ever come across the pic-a-ture. Never heard of such an animal. Good luck on your search..

A couple of months ago I saw something like you're talking about, only a modern version. It's called the T-Rex. Two wheels up front, and one in the rear. Really pretty wild. Check it out here:

Those things look pretty cool, hell even sound cool but my only questions is WHY? One wheel in the back and two in the front? So all the power comes from the back ONE wheel. Much rather be riding on a trike than sitting in that thing. Might as well just buy a dune buggy or go-kart instead of one of those.

Yeah, I agree. Why bother? Might as well just buy a sports car instead of that thing. It also looks like it would be real easy for the back end to break loose if you got on it too hard in a turn.

sorry guys for not responding,
been too busy working, haven't even been out for a ride lately
But the site found shows something similar to what I was talking about, only this one is way older, looking,but the same idea.
haven't been back there for a while , so not even sure if it is still there.
The guy was selling everything , piece buy piece, or part by part.
If I ever get back that way Ill see what is left.
He was very ill, and may even passed on, not sure .

That is very weird looking. It doesn't seem safe at all.
