    Aside from the fact it's missing the weapons loadout (which probably wouldn't be legal) and most likely can't do the whole spinning thing off of a wall or that awesome drifting maneuver in TDKR (which I wouldn't expect from a scrap scratchbuild), that's awesome.

    Doesn't really look much like the batpod to me, but it DOES look like a pretty great scrap-built bike.

    Why I love my parent's country: everyone rides motorcycles while wearing MOTHER FUCKING SANDALS. HOW THE HELL DO WE GET ENOUGH TRACTION TO USE THE PEDALS?

    Even if it's not perfectly accurate, it still looks absolutely awesome, and it's even cooler since he made it out of scraps.

    Title should read: "Man needs to get laid"

    After that bike though, I'm sure he'll get more ass than a toilet seat.
