This Man Turned a Car Into a Motorbike to Escape the Desert


– [Man] Imagine you’re
driving through the hot, Moroccan desert. Your car breaks down (metal crunches) and the nearest village is 20 miles away. Would you panic? Would you give up? Or would you convert
your car into a motorbike in a lengthy process that
might get you killed? Meet Emile Leray, the mechanical
magician who did just that. Close to a small town in
France, there is a man that loves cars. – Bonjour. – [Man] Specifically,
the French Citroën 2CV. Like those. (“Can-Can Music” by Offenbach) (tires screech) (whimsical music) And he’s got this
funny-looking motorbike with an extraordinary story behind it. – (speaking foreign language) – [Man] Obviously, like any
other stranded desert traveler, Emile decided to turn the
still-working parts of that car into this motorbike. First, he removed the car’s frame. – (speaking foreign language) – [Man] Then, he shortened
it to make a better chassis, fixed the axles, and put
the wheels on the bike. Simple, right? – No. – [Man] Oh, yeah, he also
added suspension, and, well, an engine, an ignition,
and a comfortable seat. After 12 days and 11 nights
in the desert, he was ready to go back to civilization. – (speaking foreign language) – [Man] Finally, to his
delight, he came upon the police who greeted him with a hefty fine. – (speaking foreign language) – [Man] Back in France, the
motorcycle ended up alongside Emile’s other Citroën creations. Like this boat, this rugby ball, a table saw, and even
glasses made out of rubber from the seat. This guy really loves his Citroëns. Makes you wonder what’s next. – (speaking foreign language) (big band music)

  3. Ok this is fascinating but obviously sensational. 20 miles is like two days walk but he decides, “Im short on food, gotta spend 12 days and nights making a bike” when he would’ve been home 10 days ago.

    Not to mention the whole fiasco cost him 450 euros. A guy with 12 days to kill doesn’t have a job so I see why he’s trying to get on the news and gain publicity/money

  4. Bull shit story. 12 days in desert? Where did he get food and water let alone all the tools required to build a motorcycle out of a car. Yeah right he just happened to have all that shit with him. Lol.
    Fake story.

  5. This should be titled "The laziest man on the planet". Dude built a whole motorbike out of a car to avoid walking 20 miles 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  6. Joker: why has Batman not created till now
    Person1: we just discovered the main ingredient

    Throws Emile Leray into the well

  7. The distance of 20 miles was just and this man could bore this decision in just 2 days, who tried this for 11 days and made this junk bike.

  8. LIE ALL LIES this would’ve required a torch and welder to turn this into a motorcycle taking it all off of a car frame I guess COMMON SENSE AINT SO COMMON Anyone who knows about cars and motorcycles would tell you this is impossible with only tools that they showing it would require a torch to cut in a welder of some kind

  9. If it takes 20 minutes to walk a mile SLOWLY……why not just walk out the 20 miles……instead of spending 12 fucking days out there………

  10. Everyone being a lil bitch about "wow, he couldn't walk ?" while being nicely sat on their ass all cosy. That man has mad skills and we don't know the full story

  11. -no offense, but you only travels a few kilometers from civilian. -you could have walked there in about 5-6 hours, than file a report to the police.

  12. This guy was traveling 20 miles every day to the nearest village for water n food so that he could escape the desert on a motorbike. Genius 👏

  13. next: old man in france makes a flying fortress tank and solo invades germany,germany surrenders to french guy umder 8 seconds,now its his country
