My entry for Dali Zheng's speeder bike contest. A speeder bike cutomized for small hit-and-run missions by veteran lance troopers.
About this creation
The Erebos lancer bike is optimized for manueverability and speed, while lacking in defense. The Erebos bikes are reserved for only the best of the lance trooper squads, and are usually only deployed for small hit-and-run missions. Aside from their lances, pilots have a single laser cannon mounted on the underside of the front of the bike. While it is still a military-grade speeder bike, the front of the Erebos is built somewhat in the style of a swoop bike. This particular Erebos has been decorated with Kinrath bones after its deployment on Kashyyyk.
The Erebos, set atop a 16-stud long piece to show the length measurement. It is literally about a millimeter shy of 16 studs.
But just to make sure there was no doubt that it fits, I took two angled shots from the front and back to show that the bike does in fact not hang over the edge on either end. Also, I placed a six-brick tall wall behind the bike to show that it meets the height requirements.
(I told you it was close!)

As the bike is exclusive to the lancer troopers, I figured I should add a few shots with the pilot carrying his lance.
