Black Pearl – A Steam Powered Motorcycle!!

This one of a kind motorcycle was constructed by Revatu Customs and succesfully blends a motorbike with a locomotive. The bike was unveiled at the Bigtwin Bike Show in Rosmalen, Holland.

The motorcycle flaunts its fully functioning steam engine, with the rear wheel driven by a big crankshaft mechanism. A bell and a steam horn is also attached along with two shock absorbers that connects the steering to the wheel through a trailing link structure, with a drum brake that is assigned with the task of stopping the vehicle.

However, the speed doesn’t really cope with the size of the vehicle, as the Black Pearl is only able to achieve a top velocity of 5 mp/h.

The concept may be not be very practical for day-to-day life, but shows the human creativity at its best.
