Steam powered motorcycle

Not very green, not very useful on short notice, but very cool nonetheless.

That is incredibly awesome. It would be fun to build one, albeit with better brakes.

It also gives you a great map for how air flows behind a rider, in case anyone wanted to make a shell.

I agree, this is very cool. I would love to make something like this, maybe I will. I actually have an idea, I think it would be pretty neat to take this same concept, and build a go-cart for the kids. I think they would just love something like that, and they could learn a little bit about steam engines in the process. Thanks for posting this.

So cool! But I always worry about and avoid steam myself. If it's not done JUST right, you'll get a steam explosion.

Steam pressure release valves have been around for hundreds of years.
