Yamaha V-Twin Powered: 1923 Ford T Bucket Replica

The typical vintage T-Bucket replica goes like this; off-the-shelf tube axle front end kit, bucket of fiberglass, Ford 9-inch rear end, TH350 slushbox, Chevy 350 small bloc---whoa...who put that Chebby part in my Ford?  Thems' fightin' words. The only non Ford power I'll put in a T-Bucket is something from a long-time Ford Lincoln, Jaguar, or Yamaha.  Yeah.  A V-Twin from a chopper will do nicely. Find this 1923 Ford T Bucket Replica offered for $2250 in Oxnard, CA via craigslist. Tip from Sean S.

See a better way to drive something with motorcycle power?


  1. That750 Yamaha is an inline 4. They did make a V-Twin for their Virago's but I'm counting four carburetors all in a row on this one. Still might be fun even though I suspect that weighs a bunch more than a motorcycle, making it a little rough on its clutch.
    I'm wondering if its chain driven?

  2. no word on reverse, either. and the "radiator" shroud does not look like the place to apply backward force.
