42036 Street Motorcycle - recenzja + speed build

Review comes from my blog. You can chec my FB, Youtube or Instagram.


42036 Street Motorcycle is a set that allows to build two motorcycles (two-wheelers geek I am more than a Lego :)) - "chaser" as the primary model and "naked" as an alternative.

Motorcycles were repeatedly used by TLG. The first set is 857-1 Motorbike with Sidecar [/ url], 1979. Since then Lego has released 26 models of motorcycles. Closest to the vehicle being reviewed seems set from 2010, that is, 8051-1 Motorbike [/ url]. It seems that last year's model is much poorer than its older brother (I lean on the pictures, then I do not have that motorcycle).

Series: Technic

Released: 2015

Set: 42036

Pcs: 375

PPP: 0,05 €

Model weight: 0,333 kg

Set weight (box with bricks and instructions): 0,556 kg

Alternative build: yes

Price: £17,99 / $19,99 / 19,99€ / 159,99 zł

Parts list:

- Bricklink

- Brickset

The box

The box has dimensions of 35 cm x 19 cm x 7 cm and weighs just over half a kilogram. As for the set consisting of 375 elements is quite a lot. The box is kept in a characteristic dark color. Front of cardboard includes a large photo of the main model against some road in the mountains. Furthermore, we can see the logos and Lego Technic series and information about the kit, you can build two vehicles.

The back of the box is interesting. The greater part of the back of box is picture with a beautiful optional model (I am a fan of "naked" bikes) and two photos showing the functionality of the bike, which is moving the chain and the pistons in the engine.

One of the long sides as usual, represents one of the elements in the scale of 1: 1. This time we can see Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 3 Smooth Small Long, Side A with 'LT1' Pattern.

There is no name of model on the box.




I'm writing about model built over a year ago and do not remember how many bags of elements was in the box. The content is:

- Bricks

- Two instructions (one for model A, the second for model B)

- A sheet of stickers




An instruction is the book measuring 21 cm x 16.5 cm and consists of 80 pages. Besides the construction guide consisting of 43 steps, there is a place for advertising Lego application, Technic website and three models in the series. Parts list is located in the manual model B.




The set doesn't have new parts, only a few in a new color - Medium Blue.


87080 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 1 Small Smooth Short, Side A - 2 pcs


87080 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 1 Small Smooth Short, Side B - 2 pcs


64393 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 6 Long Smooth, Side B - 1 pc


64681 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 5 Long Smooth, Side A - 1 pc


32192 Medium Blue Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Angled #4 - 135 degree - 2 pcs


64683 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 3 Small Smooth Long, Side A - 2 pcs


64391 Medium Blue Technic, Panel Fairing # 4 Small Smooth Long, Side B - 2 pcs

The build

As I mentioned in the introduction construction is moderately complicated. During shooting video it took me a little over an hour, without shooting the video would go much faster. Building process in manual is clear and well described, so there is little room for error.



Traditionally, I ask ror youtube like and subscription.

I have no spare elements, they lie somewhere in the drawers. BL indicates that the backup should be eight elements.

Finished model











Kit 42036 is successful. In the box you will find two interesting models (I will separatly review model B), with an attractive design and colors. The motorcycle is very well designed - really gives the impression of a strong "chaser". The only flaw is a V engine, not seen in this type of motorcycles. Vehicles as a set for 20 euro have a lot of functionality: riding riding we have amortized both wheels, steering wheel, rear wheel driven four-cylinder engine, moving the kickstand allowing expose model on the shelf without worrying that falls over. In addition, the kit is the doner of many parts in interesting colors - blue panels, red liftarms, wheels, tires and the whole handful of Technic bricks. The model is also solidly built - dropping on the wheels, even from a height of half a meter has not caused any damage.


+ Two nice bikes

+ Robust construction

+ A lot of parts in a new color

+ Doner of parts

+ A lot of functionalityi


- V-engine in "chaser" motorcycle but it's nothing, a half-minus

If I made mistakes forgive me, my English isn't perfect.

Nice review, thanks for taking the time. I would add as a con that the chain should be inside the swingarm and the front tyre rubs on the springs when the forks are compressed. It's a good bike, but not the best. B model is better.

Thanks for the review. I have it standing on a shelve. As Nick said, its a good one :), but what I was missing, was the fake brake discs or a second stand solution :)

To kick off the discussion of the best Bike from lego: Which one do you prefere Nick? For me it will always be 8422 :)
