I've never been a great fan of science fiction rocket/sky/jet bikes - a lot seem to be either road bikes with wheels or something that looks like the bastard offspring of a rail-road spike and an iPod.

Hence! The Republic Motors Mako Rocket Bike, a more industrial, un-aerodynamic design for the modern contrary artist! The anti-gravity-motrons generate the lift through the opposable fins on the rear-underside of the bike and forward propulsion in generated by a bank of turbofan engines in the fuselage. A tricycle undercarriage folds out for parking purposes.

The was designed to replace the VikingCorp Long Hawg used in Blasterama. I've since redesigned it to be a bit smaller.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm a total nerd when it comes to detail, I can't draw anything without coming up with a back story for it - plus the constant tug of war between the Rule Of Cool and plausability...
