Highway Star (superbike)
« on: 17 October 2022, 18:10:27 »

The Highway Star superbike from Bubblegum Crisis 2033, but I did add a bit of armor and two laser rifles as this is BattleTech.
However I would recommend using a biker-suit with a build-in parachute or jump jets, just in case....

I just did, but were you referring to a specific rifle or pistol?

Very definitely a design worthy of the source material; it's a shame the Highway Star gets wrecked.
Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen,
Tod und Verzweiflung flammet um mich her!
Fühlt nicht durch dich Jadefalke Todesschmerzen,
So bist du meine Tochter nimmermehr!
