The Big Toe- world's largest bike
The Big Toe is the world's largest bike. This monster is 2.3m(7.5 feet) high and 5m wide, weighing an astonishing 1645kg.
It has custom designed hydraulic suspension and small supporting wheels to keep it upright. The control panel has the start button and a 5000W speaker with CD player is built within the bike.
It has a top speed of 100km/hr(62mph). It is more of a show bike rather than a street bike. It is not designed to travel at high speeds. It is powered by 1975 Vintage Type E Jaguar SOHC 2 valve 60 degree 300HP 5.3L 12cylinder engine. Intake comes from 45mm twin choke Weber carburetors and a custom stainless muffler system handles the exhaust.
The man responsible for this bike is Tom Wiberg of Sweden. This bike is listed in the Guinness Book of World records as the tallest driveable motorcycle in the world.
