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

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.
