Colin Furze wasn’t deterred by an arrest on a firearms charge for his
Furze set out to break another record for the world’s longest motorcycle, as seen in the video below. The previous record was held by a motorcycle which was about 46 feet (14 meters) long and traveled about 328 feet (100 meters). Furze’s modified motorbike is 72 feet long and traveled a mile at a top speed of 35 mph.
He was the only one riding at the time, but is planning to reinforce the aluminum frame to hold passengers while in motion. Which would be awesomely safe since he says it’s “impossible to steer” and needs six lane-widths to turn. He built it out of parts from one-and-a-half 125cc mopeds and a lot of aluminum. It takes three people to move the bike, which he says is worth £3,000. That’s either US $5,200 or eleventy billion dollars, depending on what the market did today.
