Compressed Air Powered Motorbikes

No – not a discarded prop from the last Iron Man flick, this beast of a bike packs a neat pair of compressed air cylinders, the power reserve of Saline Bird (the proud beast you see here prepped to set off across that pristine salt flat). So is it a bike powered by an air compressor?

There’s carbon-fibre construction, hand-stitched leather breast and chrome finish. The concept was designed with nutty French speed addicts Les Triplettes de Bonneville in mind, hence the Utah location. But it’d do for any other surface, too.

The rider’s position is flat, so that it minimizes drag, helping the compressed air turbine make the most of the contents of those cylinders. And hope this concept becomes a road-going reality soon.
