Moto G4 Mac Mod Speeds Down the Road

by


Now in all my research of the old Apple PowerMac G4, I can’t find anything in the spec sheets that mention a 49cc, 2-stroke petrol engine. I must have missed that part somewhere. As a matter of fact, this is the first Mac I’ve ever seen that measures its speed in MPH, not MHz.

This ridiculous mod combines an old G4 with the guts of a tiny motorbike. The MOTO G4 “BURAN” can hit a top speed around 30+ miles per hour. It’s got front and rear disk brakes, and a windscreen made from a hacked up original Apple Pro keyboard.

Apparently the Buran is just the first vehicle created for the new MOTO G4 “extreme sport”, which involves turning old G3 and G4 cases into high-speed deathmobiles.

Unfortunately, they couldn’t figure out a way to keep the computer functional. I think it would have been cool if they figured out a way to do that, and mounted an LCD monitor into the handlebars. Maybe they can do that for the MOTO G4 2.0.

God, that seat looks uncomfortable.
