Amoebas don't make motorcycles and atomic bombs!
Holy crap- someone made these for real?!

I guess I can see why having a high-speed bike like that only worked in a cartoon, because I'm not seeing a whole lot of turning radius out of those.


That reminds me- did Suzuki ever push the G-Strider forward, or was that just a showpiece at the convention?

Current Mood: working working
Current Music: Stromkern "stand up"

That'd be a lot of fun to try and make one of those. The steering would be a bitch to figure out though.

I think you could just use a chopper front end. Actually, looking at the designs of most modern choppers, I think it would be totally doable. Trying to keep those plastic bits from scraping the concrete would be tough, though.

While hunting for mods for my Majesty 400, I found someone that used a Majesty as a base for making the Akira bike. Ill see if I can find it again.

If you're gonna mod a scooter (no pun intended), check out this one. Half Akira, half Knight Rider.
