Rocket II

Following today’s earlier post the Elves were most unimpressed. Peaceful river trips are not really their bag after all. However giant chrome 1,000bhp Hemi-engined trikes very much are.

This ridiculous looking device is the ‘Rocket II’, a real supercharged trike built by Englishman Tim Cotterill (aka Frogman) so named because he designs little metal frogs (…we suppose someone has to?)

Built in the the U.S and fitted with a drag racing motor Tim’s trike is very possibly the most dangerous vehicle we’ve ever posted (apart from this one of course). This spectacular Technic recreation of the Rocket II comes from previous bloggee ianying616 of Flickr, who has captured the insanity of the real vehicle perfectly in Lego form.

A huge gallery of images is available to view via the link above, plus you can watch a video of when Jay Leno met the owner (and the Rocket II) on YouTube by clicking here.
