As you can see from the hand-written window sticker, the original 1.5-liter, 55-hp BMC B-series four has been ripped out in favor of a 700-cc, 120-hp Yamaha snowmobile two-stroke. The interior has received a healthy dose of diamond-plate, and the Metro's body appears to have been lifted and possibly placed onto a custom chassis. Something crazy must be going on under there to make the two snowmobile tracks fit next to each other.
