I'm just going to leave this here...

For you motor coach and creative types, ....

Ignore the part where the author has no clue on the dimensions of a coach. Get yourself an MG maybe? There are more pics if you use the link.

The listing has ended, but my heart still yearns for this 598 cc air-cooled two-cylinder Honda Z600, even if its roof has been hacked off so it can slide into and out of the luggage compartment of the bus. Just watch this incredibly loud little Honda in action:


What’s great is that this bus has been converted into an RV, so you can live out of the thing, go on awesome road trips, and once you’ve arrived, just yank the little Honda out, and prepare to enjoy the beautiful roads around Mt. Rushmore or Pikes Peak or wherever people go in RVs.

The seller, who’s also a supplier for Z600 replacement parts, claims that a “factory rebuilt” Detroit Diesel 8V92 crate engine was bolted in about 20 years and 95,000 miles ago, so this bus should have many miles ahead of it before it needs an overhaul. More importantly, that little Honda Z600 can be purchased (assuming this thing goes on sale again) for $5,500 in addition to the bus’s $39,900 asking price.


Lots of people like to flat-tow vehicles behind RVs so they can drive around their destination in something that isn’t the length of a humpback whale, but is that really as cool as having a vehicle built into your RV? Especially when that vehicle is something as wacky as an air-cooled Honda Z600?


Clearly the answer is “no.”

Oh BB , your creativity is there already with chopping that roof of your bus , chopping a roof of a car is peanuts. And if your are welding sheet metal into bus windows you could easily weld up a couple of doors on a car.


This looks that it is written for YOU.
May be a mini cooper or ,?


Nice find, later J

Until you see the qualities of those welds!! I have noticed clean metal helps immensely. Who knew? Speaking of, time to go add a picture to the build thread.



An MG or Miata as they are already roofless.
