But this time, there are people who have the ability like that in real life. He is Emile Leray, a French man who has transformed a breakdown car into a motorcycle. Remarkably, Emile remodel damaged car into a motorcycle instead while in the house or garage, but when he got stuck in the desert with very limited equipment. 

As reported by Carbuzz on Friday, July 6, 2012, Emile experienced those events occurred in 1993. At that time, he was driving a Citroen 2CV in the middle of the African desert alone.

Feeling preoccupied driving alone, Emile was spurring his favorite old car at full speed. But, unfortunately, the Citroen 2CV hit a large rock and suffered considerable damage. Almost desperate by the incident, plus because he was alone in the middle of the desert, Emile had thought to continue the journey on foot. However, the intentions undone, because the distance to the nearest village is still very far away to be reached by foot.

Did not want to despair, Emile tried to check the car's engine and remodel it with existing equipments. Only armed with half a liter of water left, he cut off one by one the car's frame with a hacksaw. By his persistence and expertise, finally Emile succeeded. And his beloved old car was transformed into a motorcycle, with the processing time for 12 days.

Then with his new motorcycle riding, Emile ended up in a nearby village. Once there, he was again confronted with the problem. Because he was later accused of being a rebel and imposed fines, for allegedly importing motorcycles without official papers. 

Given there was no witnesses to verify the story as told by Emile, it could well fall into the urban myth. However, his makeshift Citroen two-wheeler is the real thing and an amazing piece of ingenuity MacGyver making him should be proud of.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of two-wheeled monster and stay alive with the true safety riding. God will forgive Your sins.... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARBUZZ]
