This bizarre piece kit was ridden during the making of the latest Batman film by a proffesional French stunt rider Jean-Pierre Goy.
He was to have been one of the star performers at the 17th Copdock Motorcycle Show at Ipswich, Suffolk, as he has been a number of times previously, but the awful weather prevented his display, a great pity as it's worth seeing.

The "Bat Pod", is illustrated in the programme, with a brief description, of weighing 1100-1300 pounds, with 40mm cannons, 50-caliber machine guns and exhaust ducted through the frame. It's steered from the shoulders,the rider in a prone position, which considering the width of the tyres was something of a challenge to ride. They shaved both tyres edges to start with, to help the steering but Jean-Pierre blew so many rear tyres locking the back wheel to whip the bike around they left the back tyre alone. No mention of the power plant I'm afraid.

I thought the tyres on my outfit were wide, but this is ridiculous! :)
