The Biker Advanced Recon Commando (BARC) speeder was a powerful speeder bike model used by the Grand Army of the Republic as a reconnaissance craft during the Clone Wars. It was manufactured by Aratech Repulsor Company.
They were powered by repulsors and a turbine engine mounted on the frontal prong. The speeder was controlled via twin steering vanes atop the bike, and pedals fitted below. Two blaster cannons protruded from the bottom of the forward prong, while two more were fixed on either side of the vehicle's rear.
The speeders were capable of flying at high altitudes and were sometimes used as escorts for LAAT/i gunships carrying important passengers.
The steering vanes - printed shields - come from the official version and so were perfect for this MOC. The only minor niggle I have with this MOC is the printed detail on the forward vanes having gun barrels where I've chosen to model those with LEGO. I'm not hugely fussed about it though!
I've got a model of a Jedi BARC which I'll photo and post later.
