MOTORCYCLES Peter's mind bender Peter Carylon, 21, of Pickering village, probably has the strangest-looking motorcycle in Pickering Township, east of Toronto. When he's out for a spin most people stop to take a second look. With a 283-cubic-inch V-8 engine, taken from a 1958 Chevrolet car, mounted behind the driver's seat for power and two Indianapolis racing wheels on the rear and a regular motorcycle wheel with a five-foot rake on the front, Peter's machine is certainly an eyecatcher. A machinist, Peter calls his trike the Mind Bender. He said the trike is capable of 150 miles an hour, but so far he has not driven it wide open. Last summer he had the vehicle up to 130 miles an hour in a race at Wasaga Beach. The trike, built by Tom Lakey of Brooklin, was sold to Peter, who modified it extensively. So far, the trike has cost Peter about $650.
