About this creation
I was never a real big fan of the batpod from the Dark Knight, though I did appreciate that it was an escape pod from the damaged tumbler. Inspired by the American Chopper "Gears of War Bike," I started playing around in my head with designs for a better Batman motorcycle. After browsing the web a couple days I decided it should be a reverse trike with tilt steering. Ideally it would be relatively short with a low profile and rider lying down on the tank. I also like the idea of the rider being surrounded by protective plating. Taking these ideas, I decided to try a lego moc. Unfortunately, I do not have any large technical wheels that are narrow in width, which I needed for the front wheels. I then startrd looking through bricklinks catalog for narrow motorcycle wheels and have concluded that Lego needs more variety in this area. The supper small scale of the current moc is due to my front wheel choice (I didnít have much choice). Despite its lack of function, I love the overall scale and design for my Batman minifig. Just took a couple of days to transition from full scale dreams to lego minifig reality.:) Down the road I may buy a set of Technic motorcycle tires to fleshout the concept more.
Enjoy Tommy

Hi Tommy, nice little trike. I love the first photo of him on it - it looks like he is holding on for dear life :D. You are right about the bike wheels, we need more choice.
