A motorist in Alberta, Canada couldn’t help but put out their phone and take a video after they spotted an odd, custom-built Pontiac Fiero motorcycle mashup driving down the highway last month.
The video, which was shared to YouTube by the Viral Hog channel this week, shows the strange Pontiac Fiero based trike driving down Anthony Henday Drive in Edmonton, Alberta. The short 34-second clip starts as the filmer approaches the oddball trike from behind and continues as they drive up alongside the vehicle.
According to the video description, this vehicle utilizes a modified ladder frame platform from a bus, the front end from a cruiser motorcycle of some sort, and the rear end from a Pontiac Fiero. The bus platform makes room for three rows of seating behind the driver’s seat, which would seemingly make this trike a seven-seater.
A quick Google search of the words “Pontiac Fiero trike” makes it clear that using the mid-engine Pontiac sports car as the basis for a custom trike is quite common. It’s not clear why the Fiero is the car of choice for ambitious trike builders, although it could be related to the mid-engine layout and the fact that many of them were delivered with an automatic transmission – both of which would make a trike conversion simpler.
That said, this multi-passenger bus platform trike is by far the weirdest Fiero trike we’ve come across. We will admit this build looks fairly well done and professional, which is more than we can say of this super sketchy-looking Fiero trike we found online back in January of last year (pictured below). Unlike this vehicle, that one retained the Fiero’s traditional car cabin and steering wheel and only used the front fork from a motorcycle.
