The Badsey Bullet was first created in the early 1980’s by Bill Badsey in California. (USA). The Bullet was powered by a Yamaha Venture 1200cc water-cooled V4. motorcycle engine that gave a top speed of 150 mph and a 0-60 time of under 5 seconds. Power was provided to the rear wheel by means of a shaft drive and the vehicle also featured inboard coil spring dampers.
The body of the Badsey Bullet was made from fibreglass and was unique in that the vehicle had separate cockpits for the passenger and the driver with the engine sitting in between them. Only 8 vehicles have known to be sold in the USA and South Africa.
