The most radical looks motorcycles ever made

~Radical ONES~ Before we discuss about this unique motorcycle, maybe it's a good idea to know first what makes something look unique and said to be very radical. It's easy something to be unique and radical, just a matter to make it looks unusual and tends to be eccentric (out of the box) when compared to most of its kinds. Isn't that right?😄
The Mortagua Fighter 10 'Violent Dream' is the latest creation of Carlos Rodrigues and said to use a Honda 600 Shadow engine with a unique front-wheel drive system. (Picture from: LivingWithGravity)
Well, so are the two-wheeled vehicles that we will discuss this time. As quoted of Visordown, this unique bike named the Mortagua Fighter 10 'Violent Dream' is built to be a part of the fun of the Expo Moto 2022 motorcycle shows to see the weird things that creep between the lines of the motorcycle models attended there.
The unique motorbike is the work of Carlos Manuel Almeida Rodrigues which he did at a workshop based in Mortagua city in the north of Portugal. The creator was previously also known for his expertise in making such of a kind custom motorcycles. The first edition was built in 1995, and by now the looks have completely changed. This is truly one of the most aesthetically radical motorbikes you can find ever.

Even one of his past works, entitled the Mortagua Fighter 8 'Disturbed Cadaver' custom motorcycle powered by a Suzuki GSX R-1100 engine, won the title of 'Best of Streetfighter' at the grand event of the International Custombike Championship Germany (ICCG) in Bad Salzuflen, Germany back in the 2018.

Still quoted of the Visordown, the appearance of the Mortagua Fighter 10, which is the latest work of Carlos Rodrigues at first glance, seems to be inspired by one of the fictional fighter jets by the designer Project Aces (the developer of the Ace Combat video game), it's just a matter of pinning a wheel on either end.

Carlos Rodrigues has faithfully created this unique and impeccable line of futuristic style motorcycles with such intricate details which are generally described in the drawing of sharp and tapered lines of the world's aviation design that are done with the polish of his hand skills as a glassmaker with 25 years of experience.

Unfortunately, there is no information about technical matters such as the engine used and horsepower, torque it produces, as if it is not important. Maybe it could be said less prestige than the sensation presented by this motorcycle. However, that does not mean there is no information at all about it. As quoted of OtoPlus, the Mortagua Fighter 10 is said to use a Honda 600 Shadow engine with a front-wheel drive system.

It is not surprising to say that there is not a single custom motorcycle creation made as radical as this, which the creator has made in such a way as the series ranging from the Fighter 1 to the Fighter 10 over a period of almost 30 years, shows his high and classy level of creativity that non-creative ordinary people like us could not understand.
This strange motorbike literally might be able to create a strange driving sensation too. But clearly, it's not a motorcycle for cruising down the track, or for pushing the edges of scenic mountain roads. It's specially to be driven slowly, through a city or coastal town, at night, under yellowed artificial light, while people would turn their heads instantly and scorn its obnoxiously extreme appearance.

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 | MORTAGUA FIGHTER | EXPOMOTO PORTO | LIVING WITH GRAVITY | SOYMOTERO.NET | VISORDOWN ]

A classic strange cyclops-looked three-wheeler made in Japan

~What Do U Think About IT~ Well on this occasion we will talk about a tiny unique classic vehicle made by a Japanese car maker of the 1950s called Fuji Cabin Model 5A. At first glance, this three-wheeled vehicle has a unique cyclops-like appearance (in modern day might be similar to Mike Wazowski, a main character of the Disney-Pixar's Monsters, Inc. animated series) if we've seen from front.

The such type of vehicle story began shortly after the country's defeat in World War 2 is believed that was one of the Japan's companies effort to survive. Well, this effort is also what the Diesel Automobile Manufacturing Company done after its car-making division divided into the Hino truck and Isuzu car manufacturing businesses while the aviation division became Hitachi Aviation in March 1946.
This is the Fuji Cabin Model 5A of the 1950s worthy to be crowned as the most unique look three-wheeler ever made by Japanese company. (Picture from: CarStyling.ru)
In that time developing new aviation technology was strictly forbidden by the Allies, as it was considered a war industry. So Hitachi Aviation, as well as other aircraft companies, tried to survive in non-war-related industries. The company subsequently changed its name to the Tokyo Gas and Electric Manufacturing Company in 1952, and began producing 60cc engines for motorbikes and had established itself as an engine producer of mainly small two-stroke engines.
The Fuji Cabin three-wheeled vehicle designed by Ryuichi Tomiya, and appeared for the first time at the 1955 Tokyo Motor Show. (Picture from: Below The Radar)
Then it merged with a Tokyo-based manufacturing company, Fuji Toshuda Motors of Tokyo and started to build their own motorcycles under the names of Fuji Motor and Gasuden FMC, besides supplied engines to other motorcycle makers. As time goes by, the company is decided to produce a kind of scooter with the roof or what we've known later as a micro car.

The mentioned micro cars was designed by Ryuichi Tomiya whose before the war had been in charge of body design at Nissan Motors, and afterwards he was responsible for the design of the Suminoe Flying Feather for Suminoe Manufacturing, of which 150 examples were built between 1954 and 1955. His work was highly respected, which later made him known as the 'Leonardo da Vinci of Japan'.
The Fuji Cabin Model 5A has a glassfibre bodyshell built on monocoque construction and also equipped with a single headlight, strengthened by a full-length tunnel bringing cooling air directly to the engine. (Picture from: Below The Radar)
And the Tomiya's masterpiece is the Fuji Cabin appeared for the first time at the 1955 Tokyo Motor Show as a streamlined two-seater three-wheeled coupé, and powered by a 122cc single-cylinder Gasuden scooter two-stroke engine with kick start. The unique look vehicle has a glassfibre bodyshell built on monocoque construction and also equipped with a single headlight, strengthened by a full-length tunnel bringing cooling air directly to the engine. 
The Fuji Cabin Model 5A appears to have been designed only to be driven by those of small stature like many of the Japanese at the time, as the car's interior was ludicrously cramped. (Picture from: Below The Radar)
So that when viewed from the front it looks like a creature of Greek mythology, the cyclops. While at rear, there were two rounded beetle-wing lids providing access to the motor and allowing warm air to exit. At first there was a single door on the left, but later cars got one for each side.

The Fuji Cabin Model 5A appears to have been designed only to be driven by those of small stature like many of the Japanese at the time, as the car's interior was ludicrously cramped, with far too much effort required to climb over the central tunnel to get into the staggered driver’s seat.
The Fuji Cabin Model 5A three-wheeled vehicle is a fairly good product with a sturdy construction, but also has a poor quality of bodyshell due to the maker having lack experience working with glassfibre. (Picture from: Below The Radar)
Unlike ordinary cars, the Fuji Cabin is controlled by a set of handlebars positioned close to the driver's seat for comfort, and is equipped with a small but well-engineered transmission system that incorporates a reverse gear; something unusual for a typical Western-scooter engined microcar. At that time Fuji Cabin three-wheeled vehicle was planned to be made as many as 400-500 per month, but in fact only 85 units were made all during its short production period from 1957 to 1958.
In general, the Fuji Cabin Model 5A is a fairly good product with a sturdy construction, but that doesn't mean there are no drawbacks, it's because the makers having lack experience working with glassfibre, so its bodyshell has poor quality. Besides that its sale was not a success partly because considered to be an expensive vehicle and also Fuji had no experience of marketing.

Jakusa designed the Atlantico in harmony with the 1936 Bugatti models

~Vintage STYLE~ Here's that would be happens when the design of car and motorcycle mated so that becomes an integral modification products. This is the result of creative hand sketches of Hungarian automotive designer, Tamás Jakus back in 2012 through his automotive design sites, Jakusa Design when generated a virtual custom motorcycle concept called Jakusa Atlantico Concept.
The Jakusa Atlantico ia a retro-themed big motorcycle concept designed by Tamás Jakus back in 2012. (Picture from: Bugatti Revue)
The unique motorcycle concept painted the blue-sky color with rounded body shape that characterizes the pre-war design. Its front wheels wearing a special beautified tire cover with stainless trims as a characteristic features of the vintage cars, while machinery sector closed frame shaped like the Bugatti's front grille. At the front it looks very minimalist which only has a small single headlight mounted slightly lower than the handlebar and look contrastly to its massive tank.

So when we seen the Jakusa Atlantico, there're very thick Bugatti's aroma, due to both designs are highly related to one another, as You could be seen when the motorcycle is posed along with the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic of the 1936. It will be seen very clearly that the Jakusa Atlantico motorcycle concept is actually a two-wheeled version of the mentioned Bugatti classic car.

The Jakusa Atlantico's shape which designed in harmony with the aerodynamic side of Bugatti Type 57SC, so they are made complementary forms. Through the design that also very unique, so it is difficult seem to find a wonderful blend of cars and motorcycles such as Bugatti and Jakusa today, that's the skill of the designer who can see and then put it in the form of a design such like this or another unique works of his called NMoto Golden Age.
2012 Jakusa Atlantico motorcycle concept is virtually posed along with 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. (Picture from: Bugatti Revue)
In Our opinion that's such of a kind designer's ways to adjusting the width of a large rear body that way the body and legs seem to be nice and proportional. Unfortunately the virtual motorbike is designed just for single person only, and if could be realized into real one someday, We thought also worthied to have a Harley-Davidson engine under the seat as its drivetrain.🤔 

We're sorry, the following video is not about the motorcycle being discussed but another works of Tamás Jakus.
