I call BS on that one. Someone built it no doubt, but in the desert with limited tools... BS. Plus it was a Frenchman, he would have just given up.... <--- I'm kidding.



but no, seriously.

Actually it is a true story, happened 20 years ago.

I saw this pop up on the Bandit forum yesterday. I assumed it was BS too so I sent the pic to my friend who restores Citroen 2CVs. I figured he'd dispel the parts as not even being from a Citroen.

He's actually seen this machine with his own eyes.

Look, the guy was French. So he operates with great resourcefulness and completely outside the realm of whether it makes any sense. Hell, look at a 2CV. It was obviously designed without even a glance at other cars.

When confronted with a challenge the French always lay down and throw their legs up. I call BS.

I fail to see where the transmission is connected to either side of the wheel.

the drive train isn't attached to the wheel. it's pressed against the top of the rear tire and pushes the tire along. there's no suspension for the rear.

Sigh.

You can see one drive side of the differential pushing on the tire for a friction drive. I've seen build off choppers using it, so it does work.

The french words in the pic you post says the differential is blocked on that side so it causes the other side to drive.
