Nice use of donor vehicle components. Headlight, Rear suspension arm used on front suspension, wheels and tyres (recall tyres are 125 width or narrower) rear wheel spats, even the front fender apears to be fabricated from the original front fenders. Unsure if I like the military paint. True 2cv might be red and white candy  stripes or another wacko colour scheme they called Dolly then again that might be a bit much too.

Wow, very creative and clever, but not the direction I would have gone in.  Cornering clearance looks terrible, and I'd bet it handles like a bus because of the weight and automotive wheels and tires, even if the geometry is ideal.  4,000 miles in three years, and its own trailer kinda back up my theory.

About car tires front & rear.........bike tires back in the `40-'50s look almost like car tires too.    This setup might be doable but just.  :undecided:

A "big active fellow" with his shirt inappropriately missing, and in need of some "crack spackle", I think.

If it wasn't for the photographers index finger we'd have a pictorial disaster to deal with, the crack guy, (at least I presume it's a guy),probably followed the photographer around all day after that !!! 'made a "nice little friend"...

In 1993, a man by the name of Emile Leray became stranded in a Moroccan desert with a badly damaged 2CV, so the enterprising Frenchman tore it apart, built himself a two-wheel transport, and made his way back to safety. He has kept it ever since as a memento.

Perhaps 2CV, in his case, stood for "Deux Chameaux" (Two Camels) instead of "Deux Chevaux" (Two Horses).

In the second pic, he's certainly got something in his right hand but I didn't know it was chrome !

the ebay listing has lots of photos. Engine and fenders from a 2CV. Really looks pretty well done.
