    Looks like a great idea for a fixie.

    Nice design! I’d make a great pin, or merit badge.

    That’s actually a turbojet, not a rocket.  Still cool, but ya gotta be careful about what parts might get sucked into that air intake…..

    That shirt would get your kid sent home from school.

    I sure hope that’s a freewheel and not a fixed rear hub.

    fucking perspective, how does it work?

    • class_enemy says:

      The engine is not only mounted off the frame centerline, but it’s at an offset angle (front of engine maybe 15 degrees to the right from the rider’s perspective).

      Apparently intended to go hella fast on a counterclockwise circular track.  Maybe a revival of the old “wall of death” carny act with the added value of jet exhaust……

        Actually the bike, aside from the drivetrain, is perfectly symmetrical – it’s just lying on its side, half-submerged in black paint.

        Otherwise you’d see some sign of the left crank and other half of the bars.

        • Funk Daddy says:

          So there’s another engine mounted on the other side, but it has been completely ruined for being submerged in black paint.

          At least now no budding cyclist star will lose their legs to Jet Bike.
