holy shit that's phenomenal.
I would put this in my Blog journal (aka cybertrash, which now has a usericon by the way) but it's too cool for all you people to miss.
Some company is building and selling an official functional replica of Kaneda's motorcycle from the movie Akira.
Here's the slashdot article, and here's the site with the best pictures of it.
It's so freakin cool that it almost makes me feel macho enough to want to risk my life on riding a motorcycle.
jjjiii, you of all people have got to be psyched about this. >:-D

Yeh, ok now that I've seen it it does look pretty neat. I wonder what the performance specs are. Is this a ground-up custom bike? Or simply a skin applied to a production bike? It looks more the former, which if so, cool.
