The project before you has been dubbed nothing more than Futuristic Motorcycle by its creator. Frankly, it doesn't matter much what you call the design; the idea behind it is simple, how to protect a rider from the elements like rain, snow, and cold weather while taking a ride around town.
In this spirit, the channel's craftsman begins designing a sort of enclosed capsule around a moped's body, in the process, also adding a car seat, windows, and even a door for this one-person ride. Time to look at how you, too, can put together a trinket like this for your enjoyment.
Now, the video below is over one hour long, so to allow you to go about your life and not sit here reading an article for over an hour, I'll stick to the essential aspects that make this trinket what it is.
Once you've got your vehicle, start stripping panels away, eliminate electrical lines, take off tires, all of it. Even the frame is cut into at one point, and the rear construction moved further away from the front.
It's now time to build another frame, and sure enough, square tube steel is used to create a new base for the machine. Once the bottom portion joins the front and rear of the moped, the craftsman creates an arched shape over the body, offering a preview of the things to come.
Once a few details have been worked out, it's then time to join the front of the motorcycle to give it its near-final appearance. But at this stage, you can already begin to see the machine taking shape.
With final touches meaning the addition of a floor, doors, electrical lines, and everything else, and what you're left with is the Futuristic Motorcycle.
If you've had a chance to check out the video below, then you've also noticed how this sucker handles; to call it fidgety is an understatement. Why this happens could be because the machine is now very top-heavy with a shifted center of gravity and a modified steering column that is sure to add to the control issues displayed.
Oh, and this doesn't always work either. In one instance, just a tiny miscalculation in steering gave the whole column one heck of a speed wobble, ending in an eventual collapse with no injuries, just minor damage to the motorcycle. With some slight modifications and tuning, it was back on the road. Still, some things need to be addressed if you want to make your own.
Even though there are slight issues that revolve around handling, as was the case at one point, by enclosing the rider completely inside a protective shell, the aim of offering a barrier against the world around seems to have worked. I can't wait until this crew figures out how to solve the handling issues.
