It's been a while since I made a hoverbike... Changed this design about 100 times the last month or so.
I just wasn't pleased with it until now. This was also one of the few times I used stickers in a build, needed something the break up the light bluish gray. :laugh:

It looks like a bunch of junk bolted onto an oversized engine - this bike bleeds dystopia. I always have to wonder where you get these odd windshields, it really adds to the build by being there. All the miniature engines remind of the Matrix hovercrafts. Awesome work.  :thumbup: :thumbup:

Those thrusters placements just scream: W U B

I'm glad you changed this 100 times, cause it ended really frak'n good. Great job zenn!


Though what's that windsheild from? I don't recognize it.

@ Lightningtiger > My image proceeds me... Can't help myself building them.  :tongue:

@ Cooper Works > Thanks mate. :sweet:

@ CallMePieOrDie > Exactly the look I was going for. I try to use a lot of technic/bionicle/hero factory/random bricklink finds/throwbot parts in my builds. I like the idea of crossover themed parts. Matrix, huh, now that you said it, you're right! :laugh:

@ Si-MOCs > Haha, thanks. Yeah, made a wheeled/v-tol/dual prop version. But this one made the cut. It's a throwbot visor. :wink:

This is an excellent Diesel/cyber-punk hover bike.  I just love the design and how you used the Cavewoman's hair to hold the goggles (which, alas are doing nothing).

Hello!

I guess this could be the first propeller-bike in your collection! Nicely done. :wink:

Cheers,

@ The Joker1 > Don't get me started... She's isn't called Jinx for nothing.  :tongue:

@ Hikaro Takayama > Thanks. The hair idea isn't mine, seen it a couple of times. Just suited the fig, although I was going for elf hair at first; for the ears. This makes me wanna see some Diesel/Cyberpunk movies again. :laugh:

@ Jareth > Thanks, nice to see you like it.  :sweet:

@ Legostein > Actually it's the 2nd, Blaze was the 1st. :wink:
