Intro: MortalEngines Inspired Motorcycle

so...after my https://www.instructables.com/id/Steampunk-Jetpac... i decided to build something who would be bigger and better and usefuller.

As usual, not much to say.. but a lot to show

Step 1: Cowdfunding

so i started crowdfunding....and after a while i had enough money to be able to start already....but i couldnt stop so i finished the hole project but crowdfunding is still running

Step 2: Building Main Chassis

So budget was small so i started with scrap parts wheels and metal

Step 3: Rear Drive Wheel

i used parts from my old useless escooter

Step 4: Main Woodbody

used some scrap wood i had left over

Step 5: Seat

also from scrap parts

Step 6: Upholstering Seat

Step 7: Stearing

from leftover waterinstallation and my old drum

Step 8: Front Wheel

scrap parts from gardeninstallation

Step 9: Front Body

spare parts from installing rain gutter

Step 10: Electrics an Powering

Step 11: Maintenance Door and Final Mounting

    This is sincerely a really cool ride! And a really great design with the shiny front part.

    Wie schätzt du die Chancen ein, so etwas typisiert zu bekommen? Bin zwar aus AT, wird aber nicht anders als bei euch sein.
