The 1981 Honda XL-derived 500cc lump is intriguing in that is has two exhaust pipes – despite being a single-cylinder engine. It also runs on a six-volt system, which made the electrical work a challenge. In the end, ultimately visual simplicity took an enormous amount of complex design and fabrication work. The speedo is unlabeled, save for the numbers 20, 40, and 60 through to 140.

The fuel tank was split around the single-spar frame, and pocketed out to hide the electronics, and even the front shock absorber from view. The Hossack girder-style suspension is a rare sight these days, and it helps give the ABC an intriguing stance.

The wheels are 26-inch, with a 3-inch tire eight, giving a 29-inch overall diameter. Despite obvious disdain from Leno and Smart for the Choppers which these tires were originally designed for, they clearly enjoy the aesthetic delivered by the tall, skinny wheels.

This classic Ford Bronco has a modern GT500 engine and a manual .
And it's owned by Jay Leno.

You know, the engine that's just been dropped into the 2020 Shelby GT500. It also has a five-speed manual transmission from Tremec, which you most definitely cannot get in the GT500.
