We don’t know what it is or what to call it, but we just couldn’t look away. It’s also a mystery why someone would convert this MG Midget to a Kawasaki. three wheels. Or maybe it’s a Kawasaki turned into an MG? No matter what you want to call it, it’s ingenuity in action, and it probably exists because someone had a death. MG and the back of a bagger.
Does this MG Midget / Kawasaki mashup sound like a good idea?
It even uses saddlebags, which is like using every part of your Thanksgiving turkey to make things like stuffing, soup, gravy, and of course, eating leftovers for a week. And the best part is if you like this epic mashup, you can own it. It is for sale on Facebook market At New York. But you’d better pick it up before the crowds come and claim it.
At $ 4,500, how could you go wrong? Other than the obvious tippy tendencies of some three-wheeled cars. And three-wheelers like the Polaris Slingshot and Morgan Perennial seem to be doing well in this regard, so let’s not judge.
This mashup started with a 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 and a 1976 MG Midget. MGs were those little English sports cars that started to flood our shores after WWII. A combination of generally poor wiring, questionable quality, and a few upgrades over the years spelled the end of MG in 2005.
This MG is faster and more fun than a stock Midget
In 1978 MG built its last Midget, which was indeed small. At only 137 inches and 1,600 pounds, it was small and light. Driving them on freeways or toll roads was not for the faint of heart.
Either way, with a burnt out engine and maybe a few rust holes from the harsh Eastern winters, this old MG was probably not worth much. But if one were to have a seated motorcycle, combining the two shouldn’t be that difficult or expensive.
Seller said Jalopnik he originally wanted a Campagna T-Rex, but couldn’t find the $ 40,000 at the time. (They’re going for a lot more now.) So you can see how it happened. While the MG came with a gastric pump for one engine, the Vulcan has both more horsepower and torque to make it interesting. And modern fuel injection doesn’t hurt either.
Better than spending over $ 60,000 for a T-Rex
So the good news is that this thing should tear up compared to an original Midget. And with some engine mods, it could almost be scary, in a good way. Plus, what’s even better is that it’s a lot cheaper than spending over $ 60,000 for some of the alternatives. When you look at it that way, it makes a lot more sense than we initially thought.
Another advantage is that it is recorded as 2007 Kawasaki, the licenses will therefore be cheaper than if it were a normal MG Midget. Better yet, having languished on Facebook Marketplace for two years means the seller might be ready to bargain. Being the free spirit that he must be, who knows what bizarre professions he might consider? So do your best and have fun in the snow for Christmas.
