I like that. Tired of the old typical VW trike.

Set up like a mid-engine buggy. Cleaver. I would think having one's legs wrapped between the engine and carbs could bet a bit uncomfortable. Creaky old me would definitely be access challenged.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Default Shake a Leg...

May not apply here.

You wouldn't be vaulting into the nearest bar-stool from this position?

However, hearing the dual webers gulping air at full throttle may have it's rewards.

Looks like you would have to have heat proof jeans to keep your legs and junk from overheating

Von Dutch built a two wheeled VW bike. Mike on the Pickers show ended up buying it a while back.

Great find.

". What he found was the bike Von Dutch had built around 1966 along with paperwork that had Ed “Big Daddy” Roth as a past owner. He made a 21 K$ deal on the spot and took the motorcycle home with him."
