    I've thought of making some sort of either pneumatic or spring powered jumping bike made from a full suspension bike.

    I've seen it done with some lowrider trike bikes and thought it was kinda cool.

    I think it's titanium that makes sparks when scraped on pavement, but I don't know if bicycling speeds are fast enough to make it work.

    Steel is great for making sparks. Some of my motorcycling friends would wear steel taps on their shoes just to make sparks as they rode down the road.

    here's a truck dragging titanium.
    It's all fun and games till somebody gets hurt. Then it's just fun.

    I'd imagine that it has a trike kit on it.
