Apocalypse BUG or ABUG.

The ABUG is ready for its first adventure at DevCon in Plymouth on the 3rd March. Hopefully everything will hold up to people climbing all over the bug and having photos taken, we will see. The Flame system has been improved to make the flames fire from the exhausts and upwards as opposed to out of a type of afterburner, looks better to. There will be some major changes to all the flame system both on the BUG and 95Spider over the next few weeks giving the system more flexibility in terms of altering the throw of the flames. 


A Tron Light Cycle for the 50's

The Retro-Iron bike is fully complete at last. There were a few modifications needed to the lower sections as the bike was simply to wide and would not go round corners when ridden. New chrome dials have been added and even more lighting all which is now programable so colours can se set.


A Retro-Futurism Tron Light cycle.

It has taken a few weeks but our Retro take on the Tron light cycle is nearly complete. A bit more work on finishing the dials and detailing but on the whole it is ready to go.  The styling is very Retro, almost with a hint of Egyptian Art. It is built on a Kawasaki ZZR600 so it has a fair amount of power when wound up. It is completely ridable, if you have the nerve and has a fairly comfortable riding position until the Moto-T bike. It is finished in brushed aluminium which will be a nightmare with finger prints. It is finished of with hundreds of LED's hidden throughout the bike which provides a great glow in the dark look, just like the Tron light cycles.


Moto- T Motorcycle

Our latest creation is our Moto-T motorcycle. The influence for this bike comes from the film Terminator salvation and the famous Moto Terminators. Again, it is not a replica but a different take on the film bike, very heavily influenced by the artist H.R.Giger.
The aim was to try and combine the almost impossible CGI elements from the film bike into a rideable machine, with working guns and a unusual riding position.
The machine was constructed over a Kawasaki ZZR600 mainly due to the fact that the wheelbase was the same as that used in the film. Using a large four cylinder bike also gives it a great exhaust note. The whole build was a mega challenge in that the whole riding position had to be changed and the bars lowered and narrowed.  A normal fuel tank and air intake system would not fit so a custom solution had to be worked. The biggest challenge was to make the mini guns work and articulate and still allow the bike to be ridden. It is a challenge to get your feet down when you stop but the guns are removable to make this easier if needed.



Nearly complete. The main thing that needs completing now is all the fine details especially on the interior if you can call it that.  The flame system is working much better now and this also needs tidying up. It certainly has the overall look I was after and should turn a few heads when loaded up on the back of the truck, but that will be another story as I have not even tried loading it yet, might have some ground clearance issues.
It even has a name, A.BUG, Apocalyptic BUG.


New Mad Max styled Apocalypse BUG

As yet we are not sure what to call the new Mad Max, at the moment it is just called The Bug.
It is still under construction with a completion date hopefully in September. 
The idea behind it was to produce a hybrid Retrofuturist/Mad Max horror vehicle which could be used at Film and Horror cons and allow people to pose on the vehicle and have photos taken. It was based on a new style VW Beetle but with a few additions. All the boring stuff has gone, windows, doors, bonnet, interior, roof, lights, intact all that was really left of the Bug was the engine and chassis.
There is still a great detail of fine detail to add and as you can see from the photos but the main construction is now complete. Features include a tweaked 2litre engine giving some very good performance given that the car hardly weighs anything. A large on board propane tank provides some specular flame effects(video to follow).


Some more photos showing the new styling and details added.
