This story happened back in 1993. During his journey across the Sahara Desert Emile Leray got stuck in the middle of it because his vintage Citroen V broke down.
So Frenchman Emile Leray... built a motorcycle using his car parts. He dismantled his Citroen, by removing the body, which he then uses as shelter against the sandstorms, fit the wheel arm upside down on a smaller chassis, adding the engine and gearbox in the middle. Several days later he added the battery, gas tank, took his luggage and drove away. Amazing story.

In what way was his V broken down that he couldn't repair it, yet was able to make a motorbike out of the bits? Story doesn't make sense.

Slugsie,
I think they said it was a control arm that broke.

Lucky for him, he was travelling with a welder and a full set of cutting torches and tools
and plenty of groceries and water to finally get him out of the middle of the freakin' SAHARA DESERT! c'mon seriously?
