This motorcycle was developed by mercenaries who got sick of missing big contracts because they got stuck in traffic on the way to the spaceport. With the cycle, they can use the carpool lane and get there in no time.
I got the idea from one of the Appleseed volumes, where Bri (a big cyborg) rides up on a big motorcycle, and Yoshi (just a regular non-cyborg) wants to ride it. Bri tells him to wear his Landmate (like a power armor suit), and he'd be a good fit.
If you've ever seen "American Chopper" on the Discovery Channel, you might get a kick out of imagining Paul Sr. walking into the Orange County Chopper shop and seeing Pauly, Vin and Mikey working on this bike.
Very impressive scale model. Just awesome. Congrats on MOC of the day (17-8-2011).
Right now, I'm also building an Aprilia RSV4 motorbike (white). I've built a huge pickup truck before, and even an RC Ferrari, but I must tell u that a motorbike is very difficult to build, so repesct for that buddy. Also did I build half the bike for 22 times and still lots of parts don't fit, so I'll try to build it for the 23rd time from the beginning again, hoping that it will work out righteous this time.
It reminds me of Clay Atchley's Stinger (I think it was called that). I love all of the suits. The green and dark red ones are my favorites. I will make one of them, eventually. Good Job. Where do you get the helmets.
This is just awesome. This reminds me of the type of cool idea that I might have, try, fail at, then give up on-- except you succeeded. Most importantly, it looks like it would be really fun to play with!
