I clicked the link expecting something not so good, but this actually pretty nice. I like the customed painted bike body especially, and it looks like an actual Lego product. Great job on this.

Very nice, what stands out for me is the level of detail that youve added on the bike like the helmet etc.

I find its the little touchs that make a good custom great :-)

thanks. the had difficulty finding the appropriate sticker size for the bike.. luckily the fire pick-up truck one fits the bike size but still need to do a bit of trimming.  :-$

i was conteplating whether to use an actual motorcycle helmet or the fireman's helmet, but choose the latter coz more appropriate in terms of the fireman's usage.  ;-)

Great moc! I like how you were able to fit all the equipment on the bike. But one question. Where do you live that the fire department uses motorcycles? I build emergency vehicles for a living, and have never had a fire department enquire  about using motorcycles in thier fleet. Just doesn't seem practical for a fire department.   Agan great moc.

But one question. Where do you live that the fire department uses motorcycles?

I was wondering the same...
Maybe its a small rural town and they use FirePolice instead of separate services?

I actually thought it was a lego part for some odd reason and was going to ask what set it came from.  


On another note I think this is really cool.  The accecories fit in perfect on the back and don't make the bike look bulgy.  Awesome job!

To answer both questions above, i come from Singapore in SouthEast Asia. IT s a small country and traffic congestion is an everyday thing. so the Fire Dept (called SCDF here) decided to use motobikes to avoid these congestions to get to the incidents fast. Oh ya, they use a water mist spray gun to extinguish fires and there is abt 15litres of water stored on the motobike.

And no, we do have seperate forces, Fire Dept & Police.  :-$

Here is the snapshot of one

I like the idea, very interesting.

Here we have Fire Police that pretty much just direct traffic at fire incidents and major car accidents, etc. Some US states allow FDs have them like NY, Pennsylvania, Delaware, etc. It basically frees up the real cops to handle the real crimes (being that the "Fire Police" are unarmed and cant do anything besides traffic control basically they dont really have police status except in name).

Very interesting though, some places have the police and fire department as one agency where the members are cross trained in both fire/rescue and law enforcement. An example is the Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida or the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department.

It seems I missed this one so let's revive this old thread.
This is a very good looking fire bike  *wub*.
And I like the fact that you've used real Lego stickers.

I've moved this one to the city forum because it fits perfect in that theme.

I agree with Bonaparte, it's a really nice looking MOC. You really captured the firebike look. I especially like the paintjob *y*  *y*

Thanks for reviving this old thread, Bonaparte!  :'-) Yeah.. the stickers were a bit pain-in-the-a** to cut into shape coz of it's size and that I only have a huge penknife.   :-D Thinking of making another one (coz in reality, these bikes always move out as a pair), but that means I have to purchase another Fire Pick-up truck for the stickers.  :-/  Decisions decisions.

Thanks ExoBuilder59. Actually i got lucky with the paint job. Lucky that the color matches exactly with the Standard Red Lego Color. I didn't test the color first!  :-$

This will be another revival again. I was looking through the Indexes that was done by Hinckley. Somehow, this beauty caught my attention.  :blush:

This is another great MOC from your past creations, Azmin. I missed this MOC of yours earlier. Well, as a fellow Singaporean, your MOC of yours certainly brings the truth meaning of our SCDF. Maybe, you can try and create a jeep too for the SCDF too. Your Firebike certainly marks an excellent resemblance.

Great job  :thumbup: The only thing, you can do to add on, is give the rider a helmet instead. Remember, ride safe.  :tongue:

While your building a SCDF bike, why not one of those Emergency response vehicles, the bigger... Redder and cooler open top trucks.

I was an expat, but am mainly in AUS now, though these things seem to follow me around when I'm in SG... They're everywhere...  :look:  :grin:  :laugh:

yes, actually I am trying to do that big, better, open-top truck MOC eversince I have completed the Fire Bike MOC, but time isnt on my side and I always kept on delaying it.

Its actually an Electric Fire Car and its called the "Rhino" here. Like the fire bikes, they are used as support vehicles alongside the usual fire trucks and are usually deployed for small fires.

WhiteFang: Thanks for reviving this old thread.  :tongue:
