Inventive minds attach a jet engine to a Honda Ruckus

We're fans of the Honda Ruckus here at AutoblogGreen, as its 50cc four stroke engine combines excellent fuel economy and fairly low emissions. With its cool urban-destroyer styling, knobby tires and ample storage space, the Ruckus makes both a cool vehicle on which to chart out unknown territory and an excellent little runabout. There are plenty of ways to lower the fuel efficiency of the little engine, but few of them make as loud a statement as adding a jet turbine to the back shelf. Sound crazy? Absolutely, but that didn't stop at least one enterprising person from accomplishing the feat.

We've got a couple of videos pasted after the break for you to watch, so hit the jump for more. Notice the row of bikes at Starbucks in the first video... if there weren't a jet turbine on that Ruckus, it would look a little out of place, no?
