Rhino Street Bike Motors

As you may have guessed.... this isn't a Rhino at all. It was built as if it was going to be a mini-rail, but configured to fit Rhino plastic. The result is a vehicle with the performance characteristics of a motorcyle engined sand car with the look of a Rhino. I wanted a vehicle that was fast, well balanced, reliable, fun and safe and took advantage of the super popular Rhino trend.

Owner's Note:

This project was built last fall and run all dune season and summer of 2007 and fine tuned to perfection. It was stripped down to bare frame September 2007 and freshly powder coated, painted and detailed. It is in beautiful pristine condition.
This was built with serviceability in mind and all parts are documented as to their origin and replacement. We have built many projects like this over the last 8 years in the same location in Glendale, AZ. We continue to service, repair, modify, or upgrade any of those vehicles regardless of who currently owns them. Check out our website for other Rhino modifications and other vehicles for sale.

At the “Cinders Hills” on Labor Day weekend we took a stock RZR in our camp and picked a long hill that it could just barely climb. Took quite a while to claw its way to the top. This vehicle went up @ 42 MPH sustained (GPS verified).
