Jet-Powered Harley Sold on eBay: Hell Yeah!

Jet-Powered Harley Sold on eBay: Hell Yeah!
This is the ultimate motorcycle if you ask me. I have wanted a jet bike since I was a kid when that Battlestar Galactica TV Movie had Starbuck and Apollo flying around on jet bikes. This jet bike doesn’t fly, but it is something special – a 1929 style Harley with two jet engines.

A few Japanese dudes decided to spend three years working on this project in their spare time. The end result is a great-looking replica of the famed Robotech Cyclone motorcycle. I have to say that it looks stellar and reminds me a lot of the series.

Geeky Motorcycle Helmets Look Great, Might Not Save Your Life
While I agree that these motorcycles helmets that Tigerpause444 created look pretty cool, all of his creations aren’t road legal, so no one will be starting a geeky biker club anytime soon. Still, they are interesting and distinctive.

Ferrari Helmet is Damn Sexy (and Not U.S. Legal)
I am a big fan of Ferrari cars. I know that the closest I will ever get to one is when the rich doctors in my area show up at a car show in theirs. If you are like me and really like Ferrari cars, and want to own something Ferrari yourself this helmet is surprisingly affordable.

I really like products that are made out of stuff that most of us would never think to make them from. These new Triumph Motorcycles product prototypes are exactly what I mean.

TRON Helmet Should Light Up to Make You Easier to Hit
I ride a scooter daily, and even I don’t like riding with an open-face helmet. Full-face helmets are the only way to go. But that didn’t stop the French company Ruby from designing their open-face TRON-inspired helmet.

Parker Brothers Choppers Rides Real TRON Light Cycle
The first time I caught wind of the real TRON light cycles was back in June when they were on eBay for $35,000. I wanted one so bad but sadly, my lottery ticket didn’t win. If you have the loot to buy one, apparently a few of them are still available and rather than just offering up pics for you to lust after, Parker Brothers Choppers is giving us a video of one geek riding it to get worked up over.
