Going more...

Another one, built using BA monopods as a basis for a lot of the frame. I personally love the metallic silver monopods as exhaust pipes. There is a total of eight monopods in the thing.

(Yes, I know the blue part is suckish, but the pics are so good and I don't want to rebuild/retake/reupload.)

That's all, folks!

Epic win. Beautiful use of compact design and minimalist detail.

These little things rock. Hopefully you're going to make a scooter gang for your army.

Thanks guys!

And unfortunately, since this one has so many points of articulations and it's extremely hard to get the two wheels and handlebars all lined up, it won't really see any minifig use. The other one will, however, and so will any more I decide to make that are strong enough.

It could see minifig use if you give it an outrageous speed so that the minifig will be forced off the vehicle, holding on for dear life.
