Ritchie Corrie's Bike of Terror!

If you have been visiting this blog page or know me for any length of time you know I like sci-fi and weird mechanical stuff. Hell, some of you might even get a little too into it, as I do. Well, Mr. Ritchie Corrie, of Hillsborough Christchurch New Zealand, is just as nutty as me it seems. He's another guy that bought my "How to Build a Fiberglass Body at Home" DVD, and just could not help himself, and had to get out in his garage and build something . . . something far out! Ritchie started out with an old Honda 3 wheeler ATV, cut it up, and turned it into a two wheeler. Then going for a "Mad Max" and Marvel comic's "Enforcer" kind of look, he made a plaster buck right on top of the bike, and rolled out his fiberglass matt into an all encasing shell. It's got an electric start and a four speed box to boot! The machine guns are old copper pipe he had laying about, but no worries the bullets are made of wood stuck into real shell casings. He says "It's a bit scary to ride, but lots of smiles per hour". That's the spirit Ritchie! I think its neat, and proves that anyone can do and build anything, you just have to want to do it!. What have you guys been up to? Get out in the garage and build something. Fritz
