Is it really possible to build a motorbike out of a Citroen 2CV? Read on to find out

Urban legends come and go and some are simply quite unbelievable. Jamie Heineman and Adam Savage from the science entertainment television show MythBusters, however, decided to take one strange urban legend involving the creation of a motorbike out of a Citroen 2CV and put it to the test. And, as crazy as it sounds, results are pretty impressive.

Working off the back of a legendary story about a man who was stranded in the middle of nowhere in his Citroen 2CV who escaped from the wilderness after turning his car into a two wheeler, both Heineman and Savage put it to the test.

Having obtained details of the original design, which was similar to an actual motorbike, both MythBusters tried their best to replicate the 'origina'l bike, but with less than impressive results. Following a change of plan though, and with a bit more thought behind their plan, the engine was moved from the centre of bike to the back.

As to whether the task was a complete success, check out the video below and find out for yourselves. We've gotta say, either way, we here at MotorbikeTimes are pretty impressed.
