Hormel Black Label Bacon-Fueled Motorcycle
INVehicles BY Sam Jordan
Score another point for bacon’s attempt at complete world dominance. This time, the wondermeat is branching out to America’s highways, with the Hormel Black Label Bacon-Fueled Motorcycle.
Manufactured by EVA Products BV and based on the quite rare (one of only 20 in existence) Track T800 CDI motorcycle, this bike’s 800cc three-cylinder diesel engine has been engineered to run on 100% biodiesel, and that biodiesel is made from bacon grease. The modifications include a lowered suspension, brand new gas tank, fenders, headlights and taillights, and a new seat upholstered with genuine pig leather. It’s said to get 100 miles per gallon and go from 0 to 60 in six seconds, but best of all, the exhaust smells like bacon. Hormel’s meaty motorcycle is making a trip from Austin, MN, to San Diego, CA, and after that, word is it might end up in the Spam Museum. Yes, the Spam Museum.
