    Old anarchy bike concept, needing help from bike know-it-alls

    Old anarchy bike concept, needing help from bike know-it-alls

    this is an old concept i did for one of those DSG's

    I want to redesign it so it's more practical. it's based off the akira gangbikes and the dodge tomahawk(http://www.factoryfat.com/images/tom..._1280x1024.jpg). here's what i want it to do....

    • Topspeed 350 mph
    • Accerlication: 0-60 mph: 2.5 seconds
    • Max Engine Speed: 6500 rpm
    • Very high speeds on gravel and broken concerte
    • Enough 'coushin' to land from eh... 10feet while going 300mph without having damage to the bike


    I know NOTHING really about bikes. I know it needs whells and a seat.... and headlights. I don't know what the shape of a powerful engine would look like... i don't know where and how the whells need to be set either..

    Basicly i want to design a highspeed dirtbike that can be used for unpractical combat.

    Ok, i started over and this is what i have so far, i moved the front whell closer. Added a diagnol slice down the sides for desgn, not sure if you can tell where i'm going with it but i promise i'll make it look better. Tried to make it as aerodynamic as i could, while still having it look strong and 'rugged'

    Great work!

    About dirtbikes; basically, a dirt bike is an off road vehicle. The body is suspended fairly high off the wheels and it's got some heavy-duty shocks. Your bike comes closer to looking like a crotch-rocket because of it's set-up. You'd need a pretty flat road undernieth where as a dirtbike can go just about anywhere because of it's hight allowance undernieth and light frame. http://www.just-in.net/clipart/dirt/img/dirtbike.jpg

    You have to ask yourself what you want it to do. Your rendering is absolutely fine. it's just a few things like the placement of the wheels in proportion to the body and the rear tire-guard that may be considered impractical mechanically. Again though, great work!

    i totally see what you mean, it's suppose to be kind of an insanely fast dirt bike... i honestly had fun learning some of the mechanics of motorcycles and drawing it and all... but seriously....this design f'n sucks. i need to revamp alot of it.

    Davi, what you are asking this bike to do is impossible at the moment.
    Not even GP500 bikes reach that kind of speeds, and they travel on very good road.
    That kind of speed would probaly make the bike fly....
    I am not sure of the phisics involved but I don't think it is possible on earth.

    oh one more thing the rider has to wear something to cover his arms, other wise he will dehidrate very very fast at that kind of speed.

    I know I am spoiler..:o

    take a look at the big japanese bikes (hayabusa, ninja whatever) they are shaped like bullets, and are barely capable of 250mph. any faster and your arms can't hold a grip on the handles. there is a reason why the bosshoss bike doesn't have an official speed just an indicative number

    well i know what your saying, but if it were possible i wouldn't be sitting here trying to create pretend ways for it to visually work :]

    I just need it to look functional yet... not at the same time.

    The akira bikes wen't at least 150+ and they used melee weapons at the same time, not practical at all, but visually fun as hell

    My 2 cents and a nickel:

    Aerodynamics would certainly be necessary, maybe bring in the front tire and lower the front of the bike.

    If it is too hard to stay on the bike and hold onto the handles going 250+ then the bike would have to be redesigned. Perhaps change the sitting position to a more laid back approach (Think astronauts in a space shuttle, but not that extreme). Change the position of the handlebars, or change the steering all-together.

    I get the feel that you want this bike to be designed or modified for Bosozoku gang combat, Akira Style. A scabbard would do nicely .

    Overall I think it would look better if it were longer and shorter.

    The beauty of design is in the eyes of the beholder, good luck!

    Thanks, the idiot.

    how can something be both longer and shorter at the same time...?

    I used the of the dirt bike( http://www.just-in.net/clipart/dirt/img/dirtbike.jpg ) for the whell placement, i'll try to make the front whell in closer but i'm afraid it will make it appear less...offroad.

    I'm going to try to impliment more futuristic nonsense into design, so i can get away with saying that it goes 300mph

    those links are hot, thanks man, i'm trying to stay away from closed tops and 'tron'like designs.

    here's what i got so far...

    Old anarchy bike concept, needing help from bike know-it-alls

    i lengthed it, made the front 'stronger appearing, changed the backand gave it a fan of some sort.

    if the anatomy of the chest/back looks odd, check out my first design, it's the same rider. My theory is that the helmet and the suit both create an aerodynamic arch, also, it's a parashoot, so if the rider does fly off for some reason he can use it to decent his...crash

    Yeah, that's how things come out when I'm tired, I meant longer and lower to the ground.

    Looking good, the rider certainly puts it into a better perspective.
