I came across this in Newtype magazine yesterday.

Link_01

Link_02

Not only is it a wicked cool new motorcycle, its an almost exact replica of Kaneda's bike from the Anime movie "Akira." The text will be all garbled unless you have japanese language support installed on your computer.

There was so much hype behind it at the Tokyo Motorcycle Show that there may be plans to actually produce the bike. Of course, you'll have to rich to be able to afford it but....

Ah yes I saw a link of a real one a few months back.

The only cool bike there is.

This is the link I saw which shows some of the internals.
