Interesting, didn't know you could "part out" a car to get within the budget requirements for LeMons. Still any running harley engine seems likely to blow the budget.

Lol, weedwacker powered series "hybrid" harley included...

massive chain...

That ad is hysterical! I especially liked the included pit bike:
BONUS: You'll get a 1986 Hybrid-Davidson pit bike (aka the original motor-donor). It's currently sporting a weedwacker motor that turns a lucas alternator via chain drive, which goes through some electrical do-dads to charge some batteries which in turn power an electric motor. Said electric motor then goes through a jack-shaft arrangement to drive the rear wheel of the motorcycle. "Ran when parked".

It's still parked.

Mostly because it won't run no more.

Hilarious. But actually, a 2-cylinder engine in a Prius would make some sense, since it would have less internal frictions than a 4-banger

Even me, a Prius hater, would actually like to do a test-drive on that
