The Fully Functioning “Alien-Predator Motorcycle” Custom!
Check out this sculptural Alien-Predator motorcycle from Thailand!
Updated August 23, 2018
This Alien-Predator motorcycle is one of the craziest custom motorcycles we’ve seen – it certainly wasn’t built for performance, but if you’re in the market for a machine that can really turn a head or two, then you’ll want to get in touch with Thailand’s Roongronja Sangwongprisarn. Of if you think your steel fabrication skills are up to scratch, get yourself a few boxes of scrap car parts and set your MIG welder to “stun.” With hard work and determination, you might just end up with a finished product that looks as fierce and detailed as this…but you probably won’t – and for a very good reason.
Thailand’s Alien-Predator Motorcycle
You see, the thing is that Roongrojna isn’t your average fabricator or motorcycle mechanic. He’s actually a Bangkok-based artist that specializes in making elaborate and ornate metal sculptures, and he seems to know what he’s doing, considering that he owns four shops across the country that specifically sell his work. It might not look completely original, and we’ve definitely seen little sculptures of Alien and Predator made out of odds and ends, being peddled tat shops all over the world – but none of those little cheap sculptures were of motorcycles. And none of them were fully functional either.
And his Alien-Predator motorcycle is exactly that: a fully functional, rideable, driveable, road-worthy motorcycle. While it’s probably not road legal in most locales, it’s no less impressive. Roongrojna meticulously builds his sculptural motorcycles by selecting the right pieces from discarded and scrap car, motorcycle and bicycle parts, before going through the laborious task of MIG welding every single piece together. And that’s not to mention the painstaking clean-up and polishing that follows…
While it won’t win many prizes for originality, there’s no denying that this rather impractical Alien-Predator motorcycle is pretty damn cool. It’s a shame that we don’t know what the donor bike is underneath so we can work out a rough power to weight ratio. Though, being South East Asian in origin, we’re going to guess that the donor in question is probably a rather underpowered, small capacity machine. In terms of power to weight ratio, we think the Alien-Predator motorcycle is probably a little underwhelming. But who needs performance when you’ve got looks like that? And who wouldn’t want an Alien motorcycle anyway?
