Power Cruiser (complete with a FAT rear tire)
They've all got two wheels. But this one's got more to it.
About this creation
My recent bike frenzy continues with my this one; the primary aim here was to construct a minifig-scale bike with a really FAT rear tire, which is one of the most prominent features of nowadays' powerful cruisers. I do believe this has not been done in minifig-scale ever before, so this one in particular is a bike I'm pretty happy with - even though it is not a replica of any real-life motorcycle.

Since I already had a Full Throttle bike in one of my earlier MOCs, perhaps I could call this minifig Father Torque... He sure looks happy with his unique bike.



Due to the angle and look of its headlight, the front of the bike slightly resembles the Suzuki Intruder M1800R (a.k.a. Boulevard M109R). This, however, was not on purpose and is rather just a nice side-effect.


The bike's engine is obviously an inline four and not a V-twin. I might build one of those later on, but for now I was a going for a "cleaner" look.




One of this beast's prettiest angles.






There it is, my big rear wheel design. It is a really sturdy build and the tire does not wiggle at all.





For those of you who might ask whether using a hinge brick doesn't make the bike unstable - the minifig demonstrates just how stable & comfortable this one is.



One last shot for the road... before it's burning rubber time!

Great bikes. You've inspired me to build a 2 wheeler. I just finished my first 3 wheeler, the OTC. Check it out. It's so cool to see a COUPLE play with LEGO together. Like they say, couples who play together, stay together. At least my girlfriend understands the obsession. TAKE CARE of EACH OTHER.....and your LEGO.

Thanks :) I've changed the colour scheme to black/grey (+chrome grey) and it looks a bit better now. Don't really know why I went for the black / grey / white combination in the first place...

Very nice MOC. I like it. Great idea coming up with a fat tire cruiser. The mini-fig fits perfect with the bike. Kudos on the Trumiph as well. Request? How about a BMW RS series?

Very nice bike mate! Good to see you keeping up the momentum with these. Nice design for the rear tyre, those "tap" pieces will hold it in place nicely (I know because I tried these for my bike/trike)! Well done.

Quoting Firas Abu-Jaber why he's checking the rear tire, or he's just amazed by the size of it!? lol...
He's just burnt some rubber and is now checking out if there's any threads left on the tire :P
