I placed a copy of this post here because it might be of some benefit
to someone planning, starting, or currently building a Bat Vehicle.

Now that we know and have proof that it existed, who out there is
going to step up and build the smallest Bat Vehicle?

Check out this two of a kind 1966 Batman Batcycle detachable go cart
independent powered vehicle.

We have all seen the 1966 Batcyle with sidecar for Robin but very few
remember that Robin’s side car could detach a mini go cart and drive
on its own.

A number of years back, one of the two Batcycle sidecar go carts that were built in
1966 by Richard “Korky” Korkes and Dan Dempski was sold at auction for
30,000.oo and today is estimated to be worth 100,000.oo.

The sidecar had a removable gas-powered go-kart that was deployed by
Robin. It was custom built and powered by a 55cc Yamaha engine. It had
motorcycle controls and a chrome moly steel frame.
Engine 55cc Yamaha
Carburetor Mikuni
Transmission Manual 3 speed
Ignition Electronic w/ push button start
Front wheels  5" Gar-Bro Wheel Co.
Rear wheels  5" Azusa
Tires Firestone Micro "500"  3.50-5
Brake  Airheart rear disc
Chassis construction Steel
Dimensions 55" x 25"
