    the best part of the Turbocycles is that they could fly too... now that would be something during a traffic jam...

    the best parts of these images of scifi cycles is, i do intend to build one. it will be this winters project. im also a 3D object builder - so any design i come up with from bits and pieces of these images will be displayed in my 3D renderings... scaled for the plotter to paper and from paper to reality...

    this is the same method used to build my projects as the example of the bicycle i built as the photos indicate

    the best thing i can tell you is the tools, the tools are the primary building block - im very fortunate that i work for a company who could literally build a space ship if they wanted and all the tools to do it with... the rest is just imagination and some skill on how to weld and figure things out...

    im a artist who oil paints and has been drawing vehicles on paper since elementary school... so i really want to build a vehicle that is a far stretch of the imagination and completely functional...

    Allen_okc,
    Tools? Hardware, software or both?
    I have access to a machine shop. I can run a lathe / mill. I can weld too.

    its probably not electric, but cool looking the same

    GOD work is boring today.

    This thread makes me laugh. I saw the video of the Tron bike and, though it looks really cool in an animation, when a guy is teetering around a parking lot with it, not so much... It also reminded me of this post I did a long time ago:

    how to sell a motorcycle

    the fantasy:


    the reality:

    sounds like you have the stuff - a CNC machine really helps, but not always the norm... for patterns, using cardboard is a good way to fit pieces, once you have the pattern, a good jig saw will work fine... foam insulation glued together then carved out to make forms with aluminum foil wrapped over it then fiberglass laid on top of it, generally one layer. remove from form after it dries then sand a add two to three more layers of fiberglass, a thin coat of bondo, sand, primer and paint, like i did for my RC drag truck...
