Incredible Life-Size ‘Akira’ Replica Bike

We’ve all seen Batmobiles and time machines, but when was the last time you saw a life-size replica of Kaneda’s bike from Akira? Built by Hollywood Fabricator Eddie Paul for Rapper/singer/record producer Kanye West, this Akira Bike is for sale for a mere $4,000. There’s a catch however, it’s just a display piece and is not functional. It’s made from steel and vacuum-formed plastic with rubber tires.

The bike was built for the Kanye West Music Video “Stronger,” but was cut from the final video. Kanye West and the music video producer have even signed the bike.

It’s a shame that the bike doesn’t run… and that it’s signed by West and his producer which pretty much ruins it and makes it an unwanted by all.
