It turns out that the man in question, Nick Stemple, is already somewhat well-known in his local area after appearing on local news to talk about his invention in 2019.
Stemple told California’s KMPH-TV that the so-called “Scootski” was basically a Honda Elite motorcycle with the body of a Sea-Doo jet-ski attached onto it.
Although it unfortunately won’t float on water, it is surprisingly legal to drive and can reach a top speed of about 70mph.
He told the news channel that he was inspired to make the vehicle after a friend made something similar.
“He built his and I was just like ‘that’s frickin’ sweet’ and I had to have one,” he said.
“I love this thing, I’ve gotten rid of my old motorcycles and I ride this every single day.”
He added: “The one thing I love about it is honestly how people are with you. You get people probably having the worst day ever and then they see a jet-ski going down the road and they just have the biggest smile.”
