This MOC is inspired by the B-Model of set 8291. I first followed the instructions but quickly had to make changes because I didn't have all the needed parts. Then I started making changes to make it look the way I wanted. Though it still looks similar to the Lego designers chopper, it is different in many ways. It is slightly shorter. I moved the engine bachwards. The front fork and transmission are completly different, etc. The final result makes me think of a mix between a hard tail chopper, a WWII motorcycle and an ice bike... Quite delirous but that's what choppers are about; and I like it. I hope you to. I guess some of you were understandably guetting tired of my small cars. Well here is something different. It is dedicated to Fred Ottens : one of the Lego bikes' masters.
The last pictures are the one of the bikes as I build it. I got the sleek tyres and made the change later.
i just found you were nt in my favs, i fixed it! vinny, i d never tire from your cars, as they are quite deeply worked on, and the techniques you use, and results, are outstanding! but, if you ask me what i d like to see from you, i d say fig scale 5 s! as for this great bike, well, it s very inspiring! if i ever see a complete bike set at a bargain price, i ll buy it! fred and you have affected me! AAAARGH! lol! very cool work vinny!

instuctions? come on! please?
Go to the technic section of the official Lego site and download the instructions of 8291 B-Model. Read my introduction for this MOC, look closely at the pictures, use your creativity and I am sure you will build a great bike. One more tip : I used part 2444 (www.peeron.com) to put the saddle on. I had a lot fun building this bike. I hope you will to.
Like this a lot. It's a big (literally!) step up from your little 4-5 wides. Your 5 wides were getting good, but I much prefer this scale. Top job 8/10. Needs to be more original to get the last 2 (it's quite similar to the Lego version, as you freely admit)
