So not infrequently the creative ideas of the modifiers can change the motorcycle appearance that was originally mediocre to be more unique.

Like this modified steampunk motorcycle called the Stalin Trike made by Asook Customs, the Saint-Petersburg-based motorcycle builder is inspired by the Soviet Union's classic train. Just an info, in its hey day the train was able to run up to speeds of 110 miles per hour or around 160 km per hour.

As reported by Ride Apart, that the modified steampunk motorcycle inspired by Josep Stalin's era locomotive applied two wheels at the front and one wheel at the back with the selection of small-diameter tires. While the fairing section is made in such a way that it resembles the design of the steam furnace of the classic train, by the design of the swooping line that surrounds the headlight like a veil, and combined the image of two large red stars on the front-wheels.

What's interesting about this modification is the overall appearance of the body, which may have never been on the market before. Like the handlebars or steering that serves to control the two front wheels by using the lever with a vertical grip.

Unfortunately, there is no information about the engine that carried this motorbike. Only mentioned that the engine is made of elements of an aircraft radial motor. By design, it rotates the rear wheel through a horizontal bar, like an old steam locomotive. It looks incredibly cool, but unfortunately does not work well. It is unknown whether this three-wheeled vehicle roadworthy and can be used as befits a motorcycle in general.

Although inspired by a fast steam train, the modifier did not design this three-wheeled motorcycle to ride at high speed. And this modification is clearly only focused on a unique look and to show it has a complicated design. This is inseparable as proof of the manifestation of creative modification with concepts whose basic ideas are taken from the great history of the Soviet Union.

At least, this motorcycle modification can give an idea to automotive lovers, especially the modifiers, as well as to show that the sources of inspiration of something unique can be taken from anywhere and even of the simple things.

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