Couldn't pass up sharing this gem from the Bizarre Two-Wheeler Department.
The folks over at the Dark Roasted Blend blog have a knack for finding mechanical oddities. And this French military Vespa would definitely qualify.
That's a 75mm recoilless rifle. Wow. We're not sure if it's mounted to the scooter or the scooter is mounted to it! About 800 of these were actually built and deployed. Adds new meaning to the term "backfire" doesn't it?
