Sci-fi Jet Bike Contest Part 1 - The Challenge

Over on the Rattrap Productions "Speakeasy" forum (http://www.rattrapproductions.com/speakeasy/) a simple post to show off a sci-fi bike made from junk turned into something bigger and fun. Sparked by my own slip of the tongue, a few forum members and myself decided to throw down the gauntlet to interested forum members to try their hand at building a junk bike. One thing led to another and we ended up with a full-blown contest for bragging rights.

So, my own honor as a junk builder on the line, I set out to find the bits and pieces for my junk bike. There are a few parts that will present a challenge, namely the rider and the handle bars. I think I can scrounge a rider from the bits box, but handle bars touch on one of my weak points - working with rods and making mechanical bits. Maybe I can find a way to make my bike not use handle bars or hide them somehow.

Another thing that comes to mind is that this is a chance to throw something together for the wasteland game I've been wanting to get going on. If I build this one, I'll have to make more and surely that is a good thing, right? Well, maybe its another project to remain unfinished, but we all have enough of those to line our coffins well, right?

So, the challenge has been set and I intend to answer. Stay tuned and I'll keep you all posted on what I come up with.

Thanks for reading,

Eli

P.S. Sorry for the long delay in posts. This summer was an eventful one.
