A little over a year ago we mentioned the news that Tim Cameron’s Dreambike was going to take the leap from computer screen to metal and rubber. This week, the Dreambike, now known as the V-Rex, is being shown in Daytona and it looks like it made the jump without any changes, the computer model and the actual prototype look identical. Seeing this design on the computer screen for the first time, it looked amazing but thinking it would actually be built brings up all of the issues of how you actually carry it off. Looks like they did just fine. Power comes from a Harley Davidson Revolution V-Twin engine.
Christian Travert, designer of the Y2K jetbike, is the man behind the V-Rex build and his company, Travertson Motorcycles of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is also building the VR-2, another of Cameron’s designs.
What’s even more impressive about this project is the V-Rex isn’t going to be a one off show bike, five more have already been sold to customers. Very cool.
I look forward to seeing more of Tim Cameron’s designs come to life as well as the work of some of the other excellent designers we’ve seen. If the computer design is well thought out, Christian Travert has just proven there’s no reason they can’t be built. Nice work!
