Fans of the original 'Star Wars' series will love the replica speeder bike motorcycle built by 'Vintage Works,' a Wisconsin-based metalworks company. The impressively detailed design is virtually indistinguishable from the fantasy vehicles from 'Star Wars: Return of the Jedi' save for one key feature: it can't fly.

Though grounded, Vintage Works' speeder motorcycle does whatever else it can to match the speeder bikes from the film. The motorcycle activates with a red button in the center of the control panel, its speed is controlled by pushing forward or pulling back on the handles, and it is meticulously covered in the brown metallic finish that set the speeder bikes apart.

With the resurgence of 'Star Wars' popularity as a result of the new film franchise, Vintage Works' machine is a clever way to get people interested in their products and services.
