I happened upon this story, couldn't find it already posted searching key words, so I thought it appropriate to share here.
It's reminiscent of the story "Flight of the Phoenix". Where there is a will, there is a way...

Video:While traveling through the desert somewhere in north west Africa in his Citroen 2CV , [Emile] is stopped, and was told not to go any further due to some military conflicts in the area. Not wanting to actually listen to this advice, he decides to loop around, through the desert, to circumvent this roadblock.
After a while of treading off the beaten path, [Emile] manages to snap a swing arm on his vehicle, leaving him stranded. He decided that the best course of action was to disassemble his vehicle and construct a motorcycle from the parts. This feat would be impressive on its own, but remember, he’s still in the desert and un-prepared.
There is no reason to watch the video after the first 20 second shot of the motorcycle.
