Yes, another hoverbike. build in black at first, but changed to white to give it a more 'sterile' look. Anyway, just a fun build, with a windscreen of some sort I wanted to try out. :D

I like that this is a little different from what you've been making. I still think you should make mecha.

Haha, thanks! Well I needed a way that the fig could still hold on, some hands did the tricks. (used 14 in total on this bike)
