empire strikes bike The Empire Strikes Bike
Today is bike to work day! In honor, here is an awesome bike mod. An official Skywalker Ranch cruiser bike, converted into a Empire Strikes Back-themed super-cruiser.
A couple highlights:

  • Master Replicas FX lightsabers were gutted and re-worked to become the headlight (Luke’s) and taillight (Vader’s) with lights and sound activated by switches on the lightsaber handgrips
  • The chrome Vader handlebar topper was lopped off a giant PEZ dispenser, having the added bonus of built-in light-up eyes, music and dialog from the films
