LEGO Akira Motorized Kaneda’s Bike: Where Are These Things Called Training Wheels?!

A couple of years ago we checked out The Arvo Brothers’ LEGO scale model of Kaneda’s motorcycle from Akira. LEGO master Sariel came up with his take on the iconic bike, giving it a pair of hidden wheels so it can move.

Sariel used a pair of small wheels and a Power Functions motor to make the bike move; he also added another Power Functions motor to steer the bike’s front half. The working wheels are just in front of the rear wheel, hidden by the bike’s side fairings. Because of space constraints, Sariel couldn’t fit a battery and an infrared receiver into the bike, so he connects his controller – a Power Functions infrared remote and a receiver – to the bike using two cables.

Sariel also got permission from The Arvo Brothers to use the stickers that they made for their scale model. Sariel also made a few stickers himself.

Browseeeeer! Liiiiiink! Head to Sariel’s website for more details on his awesome creation.
