My sigfig needed a new and more agile vehicle for his explorations, so here it is.

It's a dark-red quad

A very cool quad LuxorV!  *y*
I love how you've used the click hinges, makes it a very unique and awesome looking bike.
one thing i'd do though is remove the trans slope at the front, it looks a tad unnecessary.

Apart from that its great, I love that you have room for your backpack  8-°

Thanks, Batbrick :-$

I know the trans slope at the front looks a tad unnecessary. The fact simply is that I like that particular brick X-D . And, I was inspired by Hinckley Copmike and Ras's use of it as a windshield for their snowbike ;-) .

Thanks all for the kind comments :'-)

It's my sigfig driving it, in new survival suit *knight*

As for the color, I really like the dark-red (maybe it's just because I have very few pieces of it, for now :-$ ), and I don't have the right bley pieces to built it X-D

@ Exobuilder: you are free to 'steal' the central hinge design. I found it on a BS creation, but I can't honestly remember where, so I can't give precise credit 8-|

Nice little quad there LuxorV, and good job covering the use of the completely unnecessary windscreen. It keeps me from getting to mention it. Er, I just did anyway. Oops. :-$

Of course you can! You only have to follow my comics. Most of the MOCs there are city-oriented *y*

Btw, I finished taking the pics today (finally I got one day off work X-D ), and I should be able to upload Chapter 3 in 1 or 2 weeks *sweet* .

Nice quad LuxorV. It's nice and bulky, without losing anything for being anything that some people might consider 'oversized.'

The colour scheme is good too, but that's mostly because I like TLC's dark red anyway.

As for the windscreen, maybe it is unecessary, but I also have a fondness for that particular piece, so I say keep it.
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

I have a question LuxorV: Where can I find these comics you keep talking about?

I used the hinge design on a MOC I finished last night, I'll try to post it soon. ;-)

You really hurt my feelings :'-( ! (I'm starting to talk like Hinckley X-D )

You can find my two threads here (1 - not a real comic, just sort of first try 8-| ) and here (2). And you can browse the galleries here.

Hope this new creation of yours will take shorter than the mech to show up ;-)

While I like it and the design is clever, I must admit I liked the old car better. This just seems too bulky for me, unless that's what look you wanted to achive. Still a very clever design. Did I mention the design is clever?  X-D

Yes, that's what I wanted to achieve. It has a semi-military look, this way ;-)
