Here is one that took some time to get the chop and everything just right. I would say an economical Diesel maybe running on Fry oil or Biodiesel with an auto unless you like banging gears. The 50 gal Tank or there abouts sits on the back kickups of the frame. Front wheels are 18" and rears are 24". Kustom mirrors and horn cover. The headights sit under the grille along with a set of driving lights. Kustom aluminum parts every where along with flat black make this sinister. Put a Hyabusa and a Harley on the rails.

The original design was a Mack. This is the original:

Tried this single axle version but it did not look right to me:

Man, I LOVE that chopped and dropped conventional Pete. Baddest tractor I think I've ever seen. Kinda overkill for hauling bikes, but everybody would sure notice whan you pulled up with that rig. Wicked.

single axle would be a bad truck as a pickup

On this rig I figured for the bikes. You could use a lighter drivterain for better mileage. Small diesel and maybe an Allison Trans. Highway gears.

I liked this idea so much, I just got a Pete 359 to hack into something very similar. I will definitely give you credit for the original idea and design.
