Just about the time you think you’ve seen it all, here comes something down the pike that rattles your cage and pops your eyeballs wide open. Most of us tend to agree that one of the worst motorcycles ever made was the Suzuki TM 400 Cyclone. It had plenty of power, that’s for sure, but the power that it did have came on like a light switch and there was no telling exactly when the hit would come. Sometimes it came on at 3000 RPM, and other times it was 3500 RPM, and it all contributed to you taking strange trips down the dirt.
We then jumped ahead to the Honda Fat Cat 200, which was one of the worst handling bikes ever made. If nothing else, it had a decent little motor that didn’t do anything mysterious. So what we have here is the result of some strange person who stuffed the world’s worst motor ever made into one of the evilest handling motorcycles ever produced.
This makes Frankenstein’s monster look tame by comparison. Believe it or not, this … thing … was for sale on Craigslist for a mere $400. When you consider the price of weapons of mass instruction, this looks like a bargain indeed. I’m not joking; this is for real.
Here’s the actual ad:
TM 400 Fat Cat – $400
For sale is 1 1987 Honda Fat Cat 200 that has a Suzuki TM400 engine mounted on it. It’s running the Honda 200 carbureator and screams. This is about the badest mini-bike I’ve ever seen. Off road use only. It uses the Suzuki’s magneto so there’s no battery or lights.
