Where do these artists get their creative notions?!

Tom Sepes created a steam throwing, electric, sci-fi motorbiking contraption. It is built on a 1967 Tote-Gote frame, has a 15bhp electric motor and generates a gush of steam thanks to a rear mounted boiler. You can ride and get your face steamed at the same time.

It has a mechanical brake that Tom made from just a metal disk welded onto the rear hub, and a brake caliper from a motorcycle brake.

"It rubs a bit," he says "but it stops the bike."
