Dutch designer Allert Jacobs spent three years creating the fuel-efficient and shell-encased Aerocycle bike. The Aerocycle is actually a modified version of a Honda Innova 125i that now includes a hand-crafted fiberglass shell, steel tube frames, and aerodynamic cones and indicator lights.

The Aerocycle bike features a special 'door' that slides forward to accommodate the rider, a manual clutch and an interior locking system for added security. Allert Jacobs' Aerocycle cost him $5,000 to make, but the result is a sleek 200 MPG motorcycle.
