I can tell how fast that one goes. Zero because it doesn't have a chain hooked up.

I'll bet it doesn't handle like its namesake. Not that I see any similarity, anyway.

Over sensitive no, not even close. My bikes have gotten more than a few views, mostly simple questions from people or others just view and move on. However blazingpedals has been riding my backside every time a post a pic.

I guess I just don't get them. The Baja bike has a frame piece in front of the rider's head. Like that wouldn't be distracting. The truck goes "50 mph" which makes it a motorcycle not a bicycle. The others, at best, are mopeds, albeit recumbent mopeds. Whatever you're seeing in their 2D outlines, I'm not seeing it.

Empire Steve, many years ago when the Lamborghini Countach was first released I became enamored with the sexy shape of the car. I still think fondly of my youthful enthusiasm for it whenever I see pictures of one or the rare couple of times I've seen one on the road. I applaud your creative and whimsical effort. I do see and appreciate the distinctive 2D outline of this classic sports car, even if in this case the extra tubing is non-functional, it certainly is relevant and fun! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Thank you Skyskier. Im am also enamored with the countach series, greatest car ever period... I only want a nice kit one with a v6 or v8 so i can go to any auto parts store and fix it. When the Delorean time machine bike is completed ill builld a full size countach in bicycle form that you will sit in.
