Is this the kit/conversion done by Joel Dirnberger(sp?) in the '90s? I stumbled upon it on eBay and recalled it being mentioned in an OTW topic:

Most likely is Casey. If memory serves me correctly, Joel was fixated on the Geo Metro for a time and he created several different versions, including a motorcycle.

Yep, I think I saw one or two of those versions at the Milwaukee NNL 5.

I believe he was also racing one in SCCA autocross events for a time.

I remember he did one that was styled to look like a Nash Metropolitan. Seems weird the guy who built The Shark would have such a fixation with Metros.
