Imagine that... a motorcycle capable of doing 400 mph (640 kph). And it was up for sale at eBay Open eBay link in a new window for US$27,000. Of course, it's not a motorcycle that you can ride in traffic.

Glenn Brittian Rocket Motorcycle

No, the motorcycle built by Glenn Brittian is a rocket motorcycle. So it's one step up over the Marine Turbine Y2K motorcycle (link Open link in a new window), since it has a rocket, not a turbine engine.

Glenn Brittian Rocket Motorcycle

The "motorcycle" is meant for drag races, since it'll last a quarter mile before you need to feed it pennies to go again, or more likely hydrogen peroxide. The bike's rockets provide 3500 pounds (that's 15.6 kN or the equivalent of 7,000 horsepower) of thrust, and it uses 30 lb (14 kg) of fuel PER SECOND.

According to the eBay page, the parachute is included in the sale price. Thank God....

So you missed your chance of having a motorcycle that could outrun Jay Leno's MT Y2K. Click here to read about it on eBay Open Cgi.Ebay link in a new window, or read much more about rocket bikes on the via: link below.
