    I think I'm going to make this a Zealot exclusive. Guess what it is. It's one of the really coolest designs I've seen.

    Is it some kind of Mars or other worldly Rover. I also went with my wife to the Gynecologists' office today. Medical machinery? (Which still would count as other worldly rover)!!!

    ba-dum TSCHHH! :rofl:

    Certainly looks like an engine, though. In any event, the design is very clean, artistic, and looks like a solid put-together. Can't wait to see more!

    I think it is some kind of all wheel drive device, maybe one of those bomb picking up robots or something?

    No guesses from me, CA, as I've made that model myself, and I KNOW(!)

    I'll look forward to seeing your build, especially to see how you approach the challenge of the wheels.

    AAWWW...You're killing me! I figured it would just be a matter of time, either some one had built it or some one has seen it on Paperreplika.com in the bike section. When I saw it I just thought it was the coolest bike I've ever seen, so clean, so simple and two wheel drive to boot.

    Any way, made some good progress today, this is MUCH easier than the Yamaha.

    Looking good. I always thought Suzuki might make something that looks like this. I wish Suzuki made a line of Paper models like Yamaha does!
