#IAMTHESPEEDHUNTER:</br> We Want Your Bike-Powered Cars!

If you’re a regular reader here at Speedhunters then you probably know this already, but we love it when cars are built a little different. After all, variety is the spice of life. When we decided that we should run a ‘Bike-Powered’ theme later on this month, we started making the necessary steps for it to go ahead. But what we soon realised was that we didn’t want to run this theme; we needed it to happen. The sad reality is that we’ve only ever featured a grand total of TWO motorcycle engine powered feature cars and that needs to change, ASAP! And the good news is, we’re going to need your help to do it.


So, what have you fitted a bike engine into? Show us your in-the-build projects and completed weapons! Screaming Suzukis, howling Hondas… maybe even something of the V-twin variety? Let’s see it!

If you want to take part in this theme, we’d love to hear from you. Here’s what to do:

  • E-mail your submissions to iamthespeedhunter@speedhunters.com with the exact subject line of  ‘The Bike-Powered Theme’.
  • For this theme, we want you to select 3-6 high resolution images to send to us. Please include a range of different shots if possible. They don’t have to be professional pictures, although higher quality images will be more likely considered for publication.
  • Tell us your name, location and some information about your build or project.
  • Attach the images directly to the email, ensuring your images are a minimum of 1920PX on the longest side. Ideally they should be RESIZED to 1920 x 1280PX.
  • Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
  • If you haven’t taken the images yourself, we’ll need to know the name of the photographer (please make sure you have their permission to use the images) to credit them accordingly.
  • Closing date for submissions is March 16th 2015.

Like always, we’re looking forward to seeing what pops up in our IATS inbox!

Damn! Wish I knew someone who had one!


If the MotoIQ MiataBusa doesn't make this, I will be very disappointed in SH.


Option13 That was the first thing I thought of. But I doubt any of those guys read Speedhunters very often.


ChristopherAnderson1 Option13 I'm sure they've been contacted already. Larry knows those guys.


D1RGE Oh good!


good theme!


Option13 that's still a very unfinished project, isn't it?


I want to see a car powered bike theme after this!


There is a few Fiat 126 running around in Sweden with an MC engine in it. R1, Fireblade and so on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmQGIk8rAEM


ChrisGoding Unless they've made progress without updating on MotoIQ, yeah, very unfinished.


This has come just a little bit early! A friend of mine is just waiting for his Kawasaki ZZR14 engine coming back which will be reinstalled in his kit car. Once it's in it's getting a Garrett turbo strapped to it too. This was it when it was last running - https://www.flickr.com/photos/st3ph3n/7251749960/in/set-72157629853121424


Can't wait for this series of articles, my ultimate build is a hyabusa turbo'd Caterham


The "Total Automotive" Toyota Mr-s that races in NZ. Hayabusa + turbo powered. Do a article on it.


i wonder how many people out there have bike powered cars...


Well, for those who build cars, there is a lot.


I wanna do this to my Fiat! make it balls to the wall fast.


Those engine bays look too busy-looking. On my own car I sanded ALL of the grounds & ground wire connection points but I did NOT paint the inside of the hood or any of that stuff. It's too much!!
