    The black cylinder under the seat could be a fuel cell?

    HMMM.......adjustable rear suspension? This might actually be "ortopedicaly and anatomicaly correct".

    Definetly not complete, no inputs on the handlebars and no chain on the sprockets. That's going to be tough on asthetics to finish the bike with the observed missing components.

    This thing is obviously just for shits and giggles.

    There are so many aspects of the bike that just won't work that I'm not even going to get started..

    But still a really neat idea.

    The spine could be mostly hollow and serve as a "gas tank" def not a complete bike at the time of the pics being taken though

    I think it's meant to be a work of art not something to ride...

    Cool artwork, but whoever is riding it would look like he is doing something unbecoming with the skeleton.:shock:

    Look at the hose off the radiator...and how low to the ground it is, plus the car tire. Doubt it could be ridden safely in its current incarnation.

    why does it make you nervous. there are alot of people that ride car tires on motorcycles. and still get decent proformance out of them.

    check out the goldwing riders. plus you get like 30+ out of a high performance car tire.

    i watched a goldwing out of the corner of my eye pull a wheelie on a car tire.
