For 6-years, CTEK’s Big Toe motorcycle has been the undisputed world’s tallest motorcycle. The Guinness Book of World Records has the Big Toe marked down at 7 and a half feet tall, and more than 16 feet long, earning it the official title of World’s Tallest Rideable Motorcycle.
The Big Toe just sold for $80,000 in Scottsdale, Arizona at the 2011 world renowned Barrett-Jackson Auction.
Here’s a video of the Big Toe at the Barrett-Jackson auction.
The Big Toe Motorcycle was designed by Tom Wilberg, and took more than 5 years to build in Sweeden. The Big Toe weighs in at more than 3,600 pounds, and sits on top of Firestone Champion tires that are more than 52 inches in diameter.
“The engine is a 1975 vintage Type E Jaguar SOHC, 2-valve, 60 degree, 300hp, 5.3L 12 cylinder,” according to a press release. “Big Toe has a 2-pump custom hydraulic system that operates the suspension and steering. Intake comes from 45mm twin choke Weber carburetors. For the exhaust, a custom stainless muffler system. Additionally, Big Toe has a rack system mounted on the tail spoiler that includes a saddlebag fitted with TV monitors. The dashboard even has a built-in CD/DVD system.”
