0.5k: Chopper: Tomahawk Custom Pocket Bike

Noted author (and screenwriter of several James Bond films) Bruce Feirstein once said “The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.”  I’d counter that the distance between insanity and genius is measured by how close your put your keister to the pavement when you are riding a homemade pit bike at 60 miles per hour.  Find this Tomahawk Custom Pocket Bike offered for $650 in Lancaster, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Alex.

The original Tomahawk was a concept motorcycle (that term is used very loosely here) that used a Dodge Viper V-10 as the powerplant and frame — but today’s version can best be described as a 1/2 scale model version….which means it’ll take you twice as long to kill yourself, or approximately 8 seconds on average until death.  There are reports online of a Chinese company building a knock-off version of this exact thing, so it is hard to tell if this is the original monster or the Chinese built version.  Either way, the price to thrill ratio is great.
