If it’s not pulse jets, then it’s rockets. The slightly more mental tinkerers have been strapping various engines to their bikes for awhile now. The latest pulse jet powered shenanigans come from Colin Furze, a British garage inventor/video maker. After chopping up an old Raleigh, the frame was extended and a propane powered pulse jet was added.

Jump past the break to see how it was built and the jet bike in action!

Part 1: How to build a Massive Pulse Jet without a tubing roller

Part 2: First Test

From Colin: So here is the first fire up of the massive jet I’ve made. The spark generator broke after the first attempt but it seems you don’t need one on a jet this big just light it with a blow torch n shove ya leaf blower in it BOOM. As you can see it doesn’t really come to life until its ran on liquid gas then its runs away hehe.

Part 4: Ride It!


  1. Thank you BikeRumor for bringing that glorious piece of insanity to my attention!
    Helmets? Nah…
    Fire Extinguisher? Mebbe back at the shop.
    Total Kick Assitude! Check!

  2. BTW: I think the Germans lobbed those at the Brits during Dubya,Dubya,Eye,Eye in the form of
    V-1 Doodlebugs. Love the way the propane tank is wedged in between the cherry red pulse tubes. Can we say “human guided bike blivvy missile”.

What do you think?
