Robotech transforming motorcycle roars into the real world

The long and fruitful task of turning nearly every amazing anime dream into reality is moving along nicely with the just finished debut of the Robotech Cyclone motorcycle.

The sci-fi-modded motorcycle was created by a group of Japanese hobbyists who spent over three years working on the project. In the anime series, the bike transforms into a robot battle suit, but this working replica of the bike will has only one mode--transportation. In case you're rusty on your anime history, you can see the original Robotech Cyclone bike transformation here, and an old school commercial for its toy incarnation here.
