    Full-Size, usable Speeder Bike

    O.K. I have decided to tackle this one as it has been on my to-do list for QUITE some time. I am building a full-size,usable Speeder Bike. (doh!!! :P)

    Anyway, probably going to do a Frankensteining of sorts, kind of like Pepakura (kind of) for parts, with some metal-work, some fiberglassed cardboard, some scratchbuilding, and the complete demolishing of an old Yamaha dirt bike.

    I will start work soon, but I have a request, can any one put up some REALLY good reference pics???

    I hope to have this, my Fett, and a biker scout costume done by SDCC next year, as I will entering the masquerade.

    I have a 3d model I made based off of Lucas Arts reference a couple years ago if you want me to look for it.

    Re: Full-Size, usable Speeder Bike

    My suggestion for pics would be to scour the net, there should be tons of pics, like screen grabs, model kits, toys. I was thinking about the possibility of building a speeder bike and then adapting it to a hoveround, scooter type of chair for parades and such, but a dirtbike !! Sweet !!

    Good luck !

    That would be great, Thanks!!!

    Some guy did do a hover-round, and yeah, it was pretty slow.

    I suggest buying one of the Sideshow models with the Biker Scout and Bike. Should have lots of detail to them as they're fairly large.

    Looking forward to this.

    Unfortunately, I'm close to broke, I've got like $3.50, so, not to much to go with, but, It'll work.

    Usable, as in, can move, can steer, can speed up to 300 k.p.h., nah, just kidding on that last part. It will be made to be able to be remote controlled. I have an idea for the skit I will be doing. I need to get it finished, I want to enter the youth category at masquerade at SDCC '10

    I have a small model maybe a foot long. It's somewhat poorly constructed (oops) but pretty detailed, I'll subscribe to the thread so just post if there's anything you want pics of.

    Hello, I can give you the mail of the maker of this 1:1 speeder bike

    http://www.expouniversostarwars.com/ (click on the link, then play the video that is on the bottom and select 8:23 minute and above)

    I'm not really sure if he speaks English... but if you cannot speak Spanish you can use me as a translator

    Good luck with this project!

    O.K, so UPDATES!!!

    I got some of the cardboard cut out, and today I hope to have the forward body done.

    I currently have a million prop ideas swirling around in my mind, so I'm trying to narrow them down.
