Kaneda’s awesome bike from the legendary 1988 anime Akira is one of the most iconic motorcycles in pop culture history.
Its sleek, fighter jet-like design, apple red paint scheme and haphazard logo stickers make the bike stand out in fan’s minds, and the badass bike was such a significant part of Akira’s story that it landed a major place in the equally-iconic film poster that ubiquitously adorns the walls of college students everywhere – right next to Che Guevera and Bob Marley.
Now, through the miracle of Lego building blocks, Lego enthusiasts The Arvo Brothers – who must just be swimming in Legos – made this picture-perfect model of Kaneda’s bike using only commercially available Lego play sets.
The Arvo Brothers will be releasing a detailed instruction manual on how to build your own Kaneda bike. We can only hope that a “Hideous Blob Tetsuo” Lego model will be next.
You can find the online instructions here from Dec. 14: http://www.arvobrothers.com/
