A bike you can throw stuff off or use a bow and arrow to get us started... Or a good version of those bouncy suspension'ed cars you get in the US - surely you could get some serious air time if set up right? Maybe be able to ignore speed bumps?!

I would like some missile launchers for my car.

@Thelevellers: you are talking about lowriders. They are actually meant to ride as low as you can in a city of hills. Really cool to see them run. The bow and arrow mods would have to use an alternative steering system. I think you start coasting and steady with the knees then you can go back to normal steering afterwards.

Baja Bugs are fucking awesome.

I've always wanted a hidden BB shooter for my car. Hidden in the mirrors, door frames or an emblem. I don't know why. I talked about this with a friend and now he dreams of a steel bearing or nail shooter.

It would be operated by springs, no compressed air. The idea is not depending on refills, and making it as silent as possible. Aiming is unaddressed yet. I guess I just want it to shoot.

@Baslisks: Well you can ride no handed on a bike of course, but for stability you'd want to be going 15mph+, and pulling back on any bow of decent size at that speed sounds like a recipe for trouble to me... You could maybe add some foot pads to the side of the forks, and steady the direction like that, but I think (from attempted experience) that it is maybe as much work to learn to balance well... Hmmm, How about a Baja Bug fitted with low rider kit with a couple of mounted BB guns? I think we're onto something there myself... :D
