Kaneda's bike from Akira for sale

Dailies -


akirabike.jpgYes, that’s right. While we were all daydreaming about how awesome we would be if we had a ride like Kaneda from the anime cult-classic Akira, the Japanese started an entire subculture of custom builders. We’re not talking about full-scale models — that would be utter lameness. These folks are building and selling legitimate, licensed machines. Suddenly, we don’t feel so cool anymore. We don’t speak Japanese, but we’re betting these replicas feature somewhat less than two ceramic rotor drives on each wheel.

      dude actually the movie is 20 years old, but the concept of the bike itself is awesome if it went as fast or was as durable as concept it’d be awesome I’d go to WCC for mine if I had the money.

    That Akira bike built by EDDIE PAUL is a piece of garbage. Just like everything else that meathead builds.
