Now I need to work on some solid steel mag wheels.
O.O AWSOME!!! that looks effing sweet!
That looks like futuristic as seen from the fifties. very cool.
I think thats a headlight on the forks.I don't think there's a name yet for the rest of it.
Do the horn sound like a train whistle? wooo-woooo
The wheels look like they came off a band saw.
Yup...I got that part and that other one too...yup and that back piece and OH YA! that SEAT!
hmm, hard drive platters, read/write heads, is that motor from a floppy drive? ah wait is the gas tank an RS232 connector? ooh I love the LED turn signals. no wait there are VCR parts too, tape guide handle grip and brake lever! the motor is probably for the eject unit. I think I see a .22 shell. the shocks are marvelous but I have no Idea where they came from. that is a great piece of work!
Great Job! What is the overall size of that thing? How long did it take you to find parts/assemble?
I can take credit only for the comparison to a MadAss, sorry nastyman.
The original creator can be found somewhere on the Make: Blog site link - this same site has a bicycle mods section, and is probably also the source for all of the air-powered, or steam-powered moped posts that keep popping up on here.
