Video: Santa Cruz Jackal

I don’t know what’s in the water out there in Santa Cruz (or in the air…) but those dudes sure know how to have fun. Check out their latest video staring Josh Bryceland, Logan Peat and a 1949 GM Union Pacific Streamliner ripping around town on the Santa Cruz Jackal.

Still using its original super-charged two-stroke straight-six Detroit Diesel power plant connected to a Spicer 4-speed manual transmission, the “Crazy Train” is the last running coach of ten, made for ferrying passengers from Union Pacific’s Los Angeles terminal in the fifties and sixties.

Still using unique sliding dropouts to accommodate gears or single speeds, connected to the frame via compact chainstays on a super-strong asymmetrical yoke, the Jackal was made for ferrying passengers over dirt jumps, street obstacles, amusement parks and anything else you might encounter on a rampage around town.
