Designed for the Italian Army back in the 1960s, the Moto Guzzi 3-Wheel motorcycle is clearly in a class of its own. Called the Autoveicolo Da Montagna" - or Mountain Car - even the brand making it can't decide what kind of vehicle it is, offering a mix of ATV, motorcycle, and car, all in one. The idea behind its design was to create a vehicle that was nimble enough on mountain roads, strong and stable enough to carry personnel and equipment, and narrow enough to replace the mules that were used before it. With a chain-driven front wheel and rear caterpillars, the vehicle can easily haul 1,100 pound over all kinds of steep terrain. See more angles of this restoration below, which now is on display at a Russian museum.
