Built to address the concerns of the common cyclist, the BOND (Built of Notorious Deterrents) Bike features a handlebar mounted flame thrower, ejector seat, deployable front ski and a rear caterpillar track.
It was built by Yannick Read of the Environmental Transport Association, who says of the bike:
“With the next James Bond film canned owing to a lack of cash, a new bicycle equipped with flamethrower and ejector seat could be the ideal way for a cash-strapped 007 to get to work.
“The flamethrower fitted in the handlebars prevents overtaking motorists getting too close. The ejector seat disposes of thieves who beat the padlock and chain. And the bike â€“ which would make Bondâ€™s gadget inventor, Q, proud â€“ also boasts a caterpillar track for smooth riding over potholed roads.”
The bike will be display at Cycle Show 2010 at Earls Court, October 8-10, and ETA is giving you 30% off admission if you click here and enter discount code “ETA”. While you’re there, they may try to sell you cycle insurance. Photos after the break…
Surely Bond, James Bond, would have carbon stem and handlebars.
