Long front-ends and horror-inspired paint work grace the wheels and gas tank of almost every design that leaves the shop. The 23,000 sq. ft. Vegas shop is filled with wicked bikes and tricked out cars offering paint, upholstery, fabrication and a touch of Vampire flair.
Worldwide, the bikes have been featured in numerous magazines such as Street Chopper, Easy Riders and The Robb Report. The designs have attracted high-profile clients such as Matt Hughes, Michael Goddard and Ozzy Osbourne. These are the guys that restore most of the bikes/cars from the popular tv show Pawn Stars.

New Nail Gun, made by DeWALT: we don't have to register a nail gun yet!!!
It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2x4 at 200 yards.
This makes construction a breeze, you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence.
Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back,
and relax and when she has the board in the right place, just fire away.
With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading. After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably, ever again.
We have seen the previous model of the Pulse jet-powered bicycle from Maddox (don’t go on the initial half of his name for doing this). It was an exciting iteration from the man symbolized with the Pulse jet engine. And now churning his trait in for another beauty, this time he’s taken an old school cruiser bicycle to 73mph courtesy of the bolt twin engines. Taking a ride over the Super Twin at that speed, Maddox lived again to tell his tale, and has also managed to sell off six bikes to nerds of the same capacity – if you’re one interested, try your luck on eBay where it’s up for grabs at $8,500. Guys, the bike weighs 85 pounds and can be real pain to the earbuds (could actually blow it off, so just stay at a distance), but for trouble if you mount, the bikes has nothing more than standard brakes – if you’re game to try you might just think well before bidding. Video of the bike in action after the jump.
Powered by a Rolls-Royce-Allison Model 250 turboshaft engine, producing 238 kW (320 hp), the motorcycle has a recorded top speed of 227 mph (370 km/h), with a price tag of US$175,000. It is recognized by Guinness World Records as the "Most powerful production motorcycle" and the "Most expensive production motorcycle." Unlike some earlier jet-powered motorcycles, where a massive jet engine provided thrust to push the motorcycle, the turboshaft engine on this model drives the rear wheel via a two-speed gearbox. Riding the motorcycle is said to be somewhat tricky due to the inherent throttle lag in the engine, acceleration when letting off the throttle, and extreme length.
In addition to the engine, there are other innovations incorporated into this bike, such as radar detector with laser scrambler, rear-mounted camera with LCD display, and an optional passenger seat.
British inventor Colin Furze has come up with the ultimate way to stop tailgaters…fire!
Furze turned an innocent looking scooter into a flame-shooting monster. Alas, he’s be forbidden from firing off the flames on public roads. We can’t imagine why.“It’s a hell of a lot of fun and when I fire the flames it makes me feel like James Bond,” Furze tells the Daily Mirror. “I’ll only use it off-road though. I’d get in a lot of trouble otherwise. I’ve been told that if I fire the flames while riding on the road, it’s equivalent to using a firearm.”
Innovation isn’t always pretty, as two Pennsylvania college kids have shown with a homemade hydrogen-fuel-cell motorcycle that is ugly and slow but still pretty cool.
Alex Bell and Andres Pacheco, a pair of engineering majors at Swarthmore College, told us they spent two years and about $10,000 cobbling the Frankenbike together for a class project examining the viability of hydrogen-powered transportation.
What they came up with lacks the sex appeal of, say, the hydrogen-fuel-cell Suzuki Crosscage concept, and it’s about as powerful as an electric bicycle. But that doesn’t make it any less impressive.
Bell and Pacheco stripped the guts out of a junked Buell Cyclone and installed a Ballard polymer exchange membrane fuel cell that provides juice to an AC induction motor. The motor produces a whopping 1.6 horsepower and the bike tops out at 20 mph. They concede the motor is woefully underpowered, particularly given that the bike weighs 400 pounds, but they consider the bike a stepping stone.
Motorcycle called C-Org, which you see in the picture, is an invention of Michael Smolyanova. Naturally, the technology, which the author intends to use in its construction, will be realized not soon, but you can dream. The frame, suspension and steering will be grown from organic substances, followed by implantation of these fasteners. Then all the elements of organics will be processed in a special solution of fluoride, which would give them incredible strength at a very low weight. Interestingly of course, but in the near future these concepts in mass production, we obviously do not see.
