A Guy Was Stranded in the Desert For 12 Days . . . So He Built a Motorcycle Out of His Broken Down Car?

We don’t have a lot of details on this story, but it’s pretty incredible if it’s true.

We’re not sure when, but a French guy named Emile was driving his Citroen in North Africa, outside the city of Tan-Tan, Morocco.  (–His last name wasn’t given.)

Morocco doesn’t get along with their neighbor, Western Sahara, and Emile was stopped and told there was a military blockade up ahead.  So he decided to go around . . . by CUTTING through the SAHARA DESERT.

But during the drive, he hit a hole, bent the axle and damaged the car’s frame . . . leaving him stranded.

So Emile took his broken car apart, and used the parts to BUILD a MOTORCYCLE and ride back to safety.  It took him 12 days.
