When one talks about the Toyota Prius, the first thing that comes into mind would be this being one of the more successful hybrid vehicles globally we have seen to date, where its hybrid engine offers great fuel economy. However, when you mate it to a Harley-Davidson engine, you can throw fuel economy out of the window. This strange amalgamation exists, which obviously is not for sale by either Toyota or Harley-Davidson Motors.

This is one Frankenstein of a Toyota Prius, where it will rely on the chassis of a 2008 Toyota Prius, while running on a 1986 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883. You will not find the advanced 21st century Hybrid Synergy Drive inside this bad boy as it has been stripped out of the engine bay so that the towering, bored out V-twin engine from the Harley will have enough space within.

Best described this way, “2 Cylinder air-cooled engine with rock-and-stick technology that replaces the overly-complicated crap that Toyota spent bazillions of dollars and dozens of years designing and I spent a couple hours with a 10mm wrench and some wire cutters undoing”, you can check out a video of the beast above if you haven’t done so already. What do you think of this invention in particular?
