Harley Davidson V-Twin Powered Toyota Prius Is For Sale

Nope, it’s not an April Fools joke. In fact, it’s a bit late for that. What you’re seeing here in the photos and video bellow is a Toyota Prius powered by a V-twin motorcycle engine. It’s registered and, yes, you can drive it on the streets.

The engine was donated by a 1986 Harley Davidson Sportster 883 (a bit of a shame if you ask could have been a nice bobber) that has been bored to 1100cc. You’ll actually get the no-engine Harley as a bonus if you take the Prius, which is kinda nice.

As the owner himself says, more features on this Prius include:
  • 4-speed manual non-syncronized transmission with push/pull sequential shift replaces that electro-mechanical slushbox that Toyota calls a "transmission"
  • Points ignition: Because it either works or it doesn't. Spend your OBD-scanner and volt-meter budget on beer instead.
  • 1.75x.095 DOM custom-fitted rollcage with "NASCAR-style" driver's doorbar, and "FIA bars" for additional A-pillar reinforcement. Allegedly this is what you get when you bring your Prius in for the "unintended acceleration" recall**, but I can't swear to that.
  • Unmuffled, straight-though big bore exhaust designed by Basset, because loud pipes save lives and you'll need to drown out the sound of the Earth crying every time to stomp the throttle that controls your S&S "bug-sprayer" carburetor.
  • Oh yea, the throttle: The pedal comes from a 1960s Austin Mini Cooper because I don't trust that "drive by wire" nonsense (see aforementioned "unintended acceleration recall")
  • While we're on the subject of pedals: The clutch pedal is a totally bad-ass chrome job and the cable was replaced in Dec 2013. Some call the pedal a "finger lever". Whatever.
  • Kill Switch: In case removing all of the Toyota electronics, drivetrain, interior, and soullessness wasn't enough to exorcise the factory glitches. It's a total CYA move.
  • Side view mirror "handlebar whips": Because that's how you roll.
  • Sissy bar: It is a Prius, after all.
