“The Australian monster will be on show at the Melbourne Motor Show which runs from 29 February. What’s the Australian monster, you might ask? Is it a mutant kangaroo? No. Is it perhaps a pet Tazmanian devil? Wrong again. It’s a 13 ton/ 28 660 pound two-wheeler devised by Ray Baumann, a man who used to make a living out of trying to stop his own living. He was a stunt driver who has also driven trains, among other lifestyle activities.

Powered by a Detroit Diesel truck engine, mated to a 6-speed Allison automatic, this thing stands almost 9 metres/ 29.5ft long and more than 3 metres/ 9.8ft high. In fact, as seen in these pics, a full grown man doesn’t even stand up to one of the Monster Motorbike’s wheels. Caterpillar provided these wheels straight from their front-end loader, a beast on its own, used to terrorizing the earth in all manner of sorts.

“We did stunt driving for quite a few years, broke a few records and broke my back a few times, so this is a way of taking a bit more care,” says Baumann.
“Now we crush things, which is definitely less risky than jumping them – we still do jump things, but not at the Melbourne Motor Show.”
The thrill it appears, comes from rolling over smaller objects like school buses or trucks like a Ford’s F 150 for instance.” – World Car Fans
