Samurai TurboCycle

Oct 19, 2003

In the farther outer rings of the galaxy, the growing sport of Turbocycle racing is gaining in popularity among the more daring citizens of the populated worlds. It’s extremely dangerous, highly illegal, and very profitable for those with the reflexes and building skills to win frequently. Many novice racers, and more than a few experienced ones, die on the racetracks of the Turbocycle League.

The giants of the Anvilo world tend towards the old and traditional designs. The Samurai is one of the most popular bike designs on Anvilo. It’s based on the form of late 20th century Earth Sportbike design, though scaled up to accommodate the much larger body sizes of the Anvilars.

My goal with this bike was to make the most realistic looking modern sport bike that I could and hold somewhat closely to technic fig scale. This is also the first turbocycle that I built that actually has steering.
