Thursday Twister: Motoguzzi Mulo Meccanico

Welcome back to another episode of The Twister, a quiz with a twist. We find some random object on eBay/craigslist/wikipedia and you get to figure out how to make it better.  Today's twister subject a sweet Motoguzzi Mulo Meccanico offered for $19,000 in Chicago, IL.  Tip from Steve.


 This isn't some custom trike (and I do love a good custom hacked up thing...) this was an actual thing used in World War II by the Italians when they were fighting on the side of the Axis.


 It comes with these sweet tracks, which means you can turn it back into a troop carrier for your next bad weather invasion...which is exactly what I would do with it.


What would you do with this thing?

    1. Mark Fuhrman was not a neo-Nazi as initially accused, but later turned out to be a member of the neo-Mussolini movement...which is probably just as bad.

  4. Minor correction, but in deciphering the broken English of the ad, this thing is located in Turin, not Chicago.

  5. I'm not so interested in the Guzzi, but I love the tadpole rear wheel bogies, thinking what it'd take to add that to an F-150 or some such.
