Turbocycle replica...

One of the coolest things from G1980. They appear as motorcycles to humans, but can convert to fly if Colonial Warriors need to make an airborne getaway.

Turbocycle replica...

Step 1: Buy Yamaha MX175 CHECK

Step 2: Buy 2nd Yamaha MX175 CHECK

Step 3: Start mechanical modifications... STAY TUNNED


Looking for help/info on the original bikes. Specifically, it looks like the rear suspension was made ridged, the foot pegs were moved aft, the shifter was extended and reversed, the rear brake lever moved aft, and the handle bars moved forward and rotated down.

PIX would be VERY helpful. Thanks in advance for any help. Jack

To all my chrome domed lazer eyed friends...please allow me a few months before you set you targets on blasting me out of the skys. :salute:

WoW. Two of them. I love it. Mighty aggressive step taken so far. I hope to have major details by the end of the month for you.

@jaxrods - why do you need bikes for the project? Are you making two Turbocycles?
