2003 was the year the Tomahawk surfaced. Yes, the beastly bike loaded with an almost silly V10 Dodge Viper engine and 2 front wheels which left everybody staring in awe.
"Only" 9 years later, a Chinese guy builds his own version of the Tomahawk. A knock-off, obviously, rather mocking than copying the original Dodge-powered motorcycle, this bike is also on the dark side, with a wide car tire on the rear rim. Funny thing is that the "Chinahawk" is completely on the dark side, as it sports a car tire in the front, as well.

Hard to imagine leaning in turns with this bike, in case it is street-legal in China. We doubt any European or SU regulations will have this contraption legally prowling the streets.

Now, to be honest, the bike is not looking that bad. It looks silly when compared to the real Tomahawk, alright, but the man building it was truly skilled, as he managed to produce a bike which can actually be ridden and seems to sport an altogether feasible architecture. No data is available on the engine used and power, but it definitely doesn't come with a 500 HP V10.
