    Its a bit different, though only for the brave or suicidal perhaps ..

    Good for a laugh, but who'd pay nearly 8 grand for one.

    Here Colin Furze's one from almost 8 years back - he held the world record for years:

    His channel also shows how to build one, a lot cheaper than 8K too.

    In fact I think the world record is only valid if you keep the scooter looking completely stock, to avoid people simply whacking a silly engine in like they did.

    Certainly looks like the same one - someones worked fast to get the colour changed and a few tweaks, cheeky buggers slapping that price tag on it though after getting it for 2500.

    Fair play for trying though.

    Frank has always loaded the prices heavily. That motor would be worth a few quid on its own, but nothing else on that setup is I dont think.

    Fair play to him, he's built up an impressive YouTube following, I think his lack of safety is refreshing in today's nanny society.

    Love the hover bike he made - it could easily take his legs off but he buzzes around the garden on it, and his old pulse jet stuff is pretty good :D
