Fall of Saigon

Lego Saigon Street Corner

This beautifully messy street scene entitled ‘Street corner of Saigon’ comes from Flickr’s Know Your Pieces, and it perfectly captures the jumble of detritus found on any number of East Asian street corners, with plastic stools, a broken moped, and a compressor all expertly recreated in Lego form. One fixture of Saigon’s street corners is notably absent, but seeing as the metropolis, now know as Ho Chi Minh City, is today a throughly modern and advanced megacity we won’t give credence to that old stereotype. See more of the way things used to be at Know Your Pieces’ photostream via the link above.

Mike and the Mechanics

Lego BMX Garage

Another day, another find, and another obscure British music reference for a title. You don’t get that at The Brothers Brick.

This brilliant garage scene comes from Flickr’s mike m., and it perfectly captures probably every garage in the land. Typical garage clutter is detailed in abundance, and we’re willing to bet that this single wonderful shot has done more to connect you with the days of your youth than anything else you’ve seen this week.

Crotch Rocket

Lego Technic Superbike

This brilliant-looking Technic superbike comes from Justin Broniszewski of MOCpages, and it looks like it’s going a million standing still. Working steering, a V4 piston engine and rear suspension all feature, and there’s more to see via the link above.

Ridin’ Dirty

 Lego Davidson Softail Springer

Dennis Glaasker aka Brickonwheels has been building incredibly detailed bikes, trucks and cars from before this blog had published its first poorly-worded Lego-related gibberish. This is the latest in Dennis’ long line of spectacularly-chromed Harley Davidson motorcycles, a 1:10 scale ‘Softail Springer’ in – for reasons that escape us – various shades of brown. There’s a whole lot more to see at Brickonwheels’ photostream via the link above, and you can check out our interview with the builder in our Master MOCers series by clicking here.

Hidenka!

Lego Yamaha Hidenka Motorcycle

This delightfully outrageous concept motorcycle is the work of one Flickr’s most inventive builders, the brilliant F@bz. Inspired by the ‘Ghost in the Shell’ movie, which is a feat in itself as the movie was one of the most uninspired we’ve seen in recent times, it’s called the Yamaha Hidenka, and there’s more to see at F@bz’ photostream via the link above.

Riding a Nimbus

Lego Nimbus Motorcycle

Sorry Harry Potter fans, this isn’t a post about Harry’s Nimbus broomstick, but rather an obscure Danish motorcycle manufacturer that ceased production before the 1960s. Which to the nerds here in TLCB office makes it a much more interesting subject.

This lovely Model Team recreation of one of Nimbus’s later variants comes from previous bloggee Henrik Jensen, who has appeared here before with another Nimbus build. Henrik built this one as a commissioned piece for motorcycle club, and there’s more to see at both Flickr and MOCpages via the links.

e-Bike

Lego Technic BMW WR 1000 e-Bike

This gloriously futuristic BMW WR 1000 electric motorcycle is the work of newcomer kbalage aka RacingBrick.

Built for LEGO’s Future BMW motorcycle contest RacingBrick’s bike features adjustable rear suspension and front and rear mounted LED lights, whilst the design concept is powered by two electric hub motors providing a combined 1000hp and features solar rechargeable interchangeable batteries.

Technology like this isn’t too far from reality so we’ve got our fingers crossed that something like this will one day make production. Until then you can check out RacingBrick’s Technic BMW concept at both Eurobricks and Flickr courtesy of the links in the text above.

Pedal Power

Lego Bicycle

We seem to have a self-propelled theme running today, despite this supposedly being a car blog. Although today’s posts are self-propelled we, er… haven’t been, seeing as we pinched this creation from The Brothers Brick who beat us to it. It’s the work of Melan-E of Flickr, it’s beautiful, and you can see it in full detail here. Normal car-based blogging will resume shortly…

Naked Bike

Naked Bike

Brian Kescenovitz‘s tiny creation caught the tiny eyes and minds of our workforce because of its name. Indeed we’ve had to keep his original title for this blog post, just to satisfy a hoard of tittering and sniggering Elves. Brian’s motorcycle caught our eyes because it’s highly detailed, with some very novel parts usage and connections. Click this link to his Photostream and scroll down to see more of Brian’s tiny motorbikes.

Biker’s Paradise

Lego Technic Motorbikes

The Lego Car Blog Team own some interesting cars, as you’d probably expect from a website as nerdily automotive as this one, but no motorbikes. This is because if we owned motorcycles this blog would never have made it to five years old, and our organs would now belong to other people.

However despite our aversion to owning motorbikes, we do still rather like them, and fortunately newcomer Nesme Laurent (aka NEMOOZ) allows us to indulge in this passion from the safety of a comfy chair.

Laurent has built almost fifty Technic replica motorcycles, from manufacturers including BMW, Ducati, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzi, Honda, KTM, Yamaha, and Kawasaki, each features a variety of working functions, and instructions are available for many of the designs too.

You can see a selection of Laurent’s builds at his newly created MOCpage, and you can see the full back-catalogue of fifty or so bikes via Brickshelf.

Not a Car…

Lego Harley Davidson Softail Heritage Custom

…But so very very shiny. This magnificently mirrored Harley Davidson Softail Heritage motorcycle comes from previous bloggee, TLCB Master MOCer, and all-round vehicle-building legend Dennis Glaasker aka BrickonWheels. Showing just how good third-party brick chroming can look, there’s more to see of Dennis’  beautiful Harley on Flickr by clicking here.

BMW F700 GS Rallye

Lego BMW F700 GS Rallye

LEGO’s new partnership with BMW Motorrad has already produced a brilliant looking Technic set in the form of the 42063 R 1200 GS Adventure motorbike. Joining it in a matching scale is this superb F700 GS Rallye built by Flickr’s ianying616, who has recreated BMW’s mid-spec tourer wonderfully in the latest Technic style, adding some neat Model Team detail touches whilst retaining Technic functionality. Steering, shaft drive, and a two-cylinder boxer engine all feature, and there’s more to see at ianying’s photostream.

Jawa Powa

Lego Technic Jawa 350 Motorcycle

This Eastern European oddity is an air-cooled Jawa 350 motorcycle, a bike that was launched back in the ’50s, yet is still in production today. This neat Technic recreation of the Czechoslovakian motorbike comes from František Hajdekr and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link.

Bella Moto

Lego Vespa

Is there anything prettier than a girl on a Vespa?* Nope. Not unless you’re the new White House Press Secretary (whereby the prettiest thing ever witnessed is President Donald Trump, period). Previous bloggee ZetoVince may not have built a girl to accompany his Vespa, but his Lego recreation of the iconic Italian scooter is absolutely gorgeous. There’s more to see of this beautiful model on Flickr, where you can also vote for it to become an official LEGO set via LEGO Ideas – click the link above to go for a ride.

*We’ve done the research, see here. And here. And here. Blogging is tough sometimes.

And here.

A Motorcycle Built for Two

Lego Technic BMW R60 Sidecar

Maxime Cheng‘s beautiful classic BMW R60 motorcycle has appeared here before (twice in fact), and it’s now been joined by an equally stunning sidecar. Easily one of the finest Lego motorbikes we’ve ever found it’s a build that’s definitely worth a closer look.

Maxime is hoping the design will become an official LEGO set via the LEGO Ideas platform, and with BMW now an official partner of LEGO with the launch of the new Technic 42063 BMW R 1200 Adventure set we think this is highly possible. You can check out all of the brilliant images and add your vote on LEGO Ideas via the link above.
