Or has Captain Kirk gone somewhat bonkers?
Normally we don’t dabble in trikes, but the Rivet is noordinary three-wheeler. For one, it’s got 500 horsepower and a look straightout of a comic book about the apocalypse. Oh, and it was co-designed by WilliamShatner. That’s right, Captain Kirk and the Priceline Negotiator helped design this insane bike. American Wrench, a custom motorcycle company based in Aurora, Illinois, willbe the shop that brings this thing to life. Who knew Shatner was a gearhead?
According to Shatner, the Rivet will be powered by asupercharged V8 engine made entirely out of aluminum. It will produce500 horsepower and work with a drivetrain sourced from the Cadillac CTS-V. Theengine specs are nice, but the design is what will really turns heads. Simply put, nothing on the road will look like the Rivet.Its plush seat and insane rear lights will draw the most attention, as will its control system comprised of two levers. Shatner claims the bikewill be ready this summer and the actor plans to ride it from Chicago to LosAngeles. Good luck with that one, Captain Kirk.
