Twin 998cc Ninja-Power! Crazy 1990 Toyota MR2

And now, for something completely different, an MR2 with two motorcycles on its buttocks. That is correct; wearing a Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R on each hip, the 1990 Toyota MR2 in Roundup, Montana may not be the only such vehicle in the world, but it’s almost certainly the only one in your neighborhood. The unfinished project seeks an enterprising new owner on Facebook Marketplace, where $5000 makes it yours. Thanks to reader Sean for submitting this tip with the tag line “I Am Speechless,” which pretty much covers it.

Many inventors and artists leverage the seeds of insanity to achieve magnificent leaps of logic. The winter nights are long in Montana, and the beer is cold. However the idea was hatched, a significant amount of engineering and fabrication has taken place to date, yet fewer than 40 words describe the item for sale. An optimist may describe potential benefits of the design. The wider stance could make for enhanced stability in corners, and extra space between the two bikes might offer bonus storage if it’s not fully consumed with mechanical bits.

Though clearly a work in progress, the MR2’s blue, white, and red color scheme scores high marks for patriotism, for Americans anyway. That bucket seat looks comfortable, and the MR2 should respond well with more than 300 horsepower on tap, 160+ from each bike. Hopefully the not-identical bikes (one 2004 and one 2007) utilize the same gear ratios and wheel and tires sizes.

A carefully-laid fiberglass hatch seems to have given way to a jagged and gaping hole, perhaps from frustration or unfortunate accident. The listing states “needs gear reduction,” but really, how hard can it be to make two motorcycles instantly and reliably select the same gears or neutral at any given speed and accelerate simultaneously using a Rube Goldberg-approved nest of rods and levers? Surely, for the skilled and savvy dreamer, success is mere hours away! Are you chomping at the bit to get this innovative project over the finish line?

      Forget the alcohol there were some pretty substantial drugs involved in this “build”

    Oh my! This looks like the product of a Friday night discussion at the shop with your work buddies and a couple cases of liquid courage. Personally I would have kept the seats on the bikes and given the controls with the riders, some 2 way radios, and a lot of coordination.

    Calling this mess “a work in progress” is not exactly accurate.
    More like a “work in distress”.

    Or “what to do when you want to ruin three vehicles simultaneously.”

      Well, the front headlight bulbs might be salvageable, maybe even the front bumper cover. Beyond that? A burning car can keep you warm for a little while. That’s about all the purpose I can think of for this project.

    Way too much beer involved in this one, maybe even some vodka! Looks like a waste of what was probably a perfectly good MR2.

    Looking at this pos is making my head hurt. This is more than a result of too much beer. There is some glue or meth involved here it seems. Brain damage also plays into the equation somewhere.

    Wow, that’s just plain awful! I wouldn’t even accept it for free into my cycle salvage. Hopefully, the destroyer has learned something from his fiasco and applied it to a better project.

    I’m not sure if this is a product of booze, cocaine, meth, or all three. Regardless, the result is a hacked-up MR2 and two ruined Kawasaki Ninjas.

    When we were starting to build shifter karts you would see a lot of creativity for clutch and shifter. Looking at the rod connected to the clutch lever on this shows a whole different level

    Wow. The phrase “what were they thinking” doesn’t even begin to describe the mess pictured in the photos. I personally restored an 88 MR2 and love the look of the classic 80s wedge, but this is as Monty Python says “something completely different.” My impression is that if you tried to steer this steed at any appreciable speed it would explode or find the nearest telephone pole. Please put it out of its misery…..

    If you look in the background of one of the listing pics in Facebook Marketplace, you can clearly see this MR2 is not the only victim of this redneck sorcery of hybridization. There is what looks like a yellow Smart car with a Harley inserted into its rectum in the background.

    I am guessing this is all the direct result of someone letting the satellite subscription lapse on the farm.

  43. John VanGorder Member

    It certainly is a monstrosity, and for you trivia folks…there technically is no such thing as a 1990 MR2. The 85-89 gen 1 MR2 (wedge) went out of production in mid to late 89, toyota immediately started retooling and started producing the Gen 2 in early 90 but the gen 2 was an “early release”1991. I sold Toyotas at the time this all happened. The 91 turbos we very fun and fast for the time.
