LEGO Technic Stunt Bike
Spending hours building LEGO Technic sets just to turn around and destroy the masterpiece seems sacrilegious. It’s hard to watch at times but like a good train wreck or stunt, we can’t look away! Making these videos is so much fun. Brainstorming new innovative ways to dismantle these builds is very fascinating and rewarding. It’s a form of stress relief therapy. The Untrained Slackers have been incredibly helpful bringing that stress relief directly to us! They never cease to take LEGO to a whole new level.
Building the LEGO Stunt Bike
The Technic line of LEGO developed in 2000 has more complex functions compared to simple bricks. For example, the Technic pieces and interconnecting rods give the capability of more complex builds with the addition of connecting axles. It even has the ability of adding items such as motors and other pneumatic (containing or operated by air or gas under pressure) pieces. I just keep thinking to myself, “Aw man, wish I had all this cool stuff when I was younger!” and then I think back to my childhood and remember the original bad-ass Eastman and Laird Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. You know, the version before it was a hit 80’s cartoon?
Speaking of motors, a new type of motor was released in 2007 called Power Functions. According to Brickapedia.com, Power Functions is a Technic based system of electronic components, including motors, lights, remote control units and receivers or different power units. Which brings us to our LEGO Technic stunt bike (42058)! The stunt bike was a really fun build, and even more fun to put into action off of a rooftop! Just like the days of Evel Knievel, this bike took a dive off a make-shift ramp of uncertainty. With a huge drop, our bike receives a final bow as… well, you’ll have to watch, now won’t you?

Who doesn’t like a good stunt bike show? Especially with LEGO!
