From Akira, the Kaneda motorcycle becomes real with this amazing replica
The famous motorcycle, one of the most popular and well-known pieces of anime, has been created for a while thanks to the incredible talent of ‘YouTuber’ Ayato. The result is excellent.
There are construction projects on YouTube that surpass all anticipations. The case of Ayato, a YouTuber copying a Kaneda-wearing motorcycle in Akira, is one of them.
The piece, one of the most well-known and popular in the anime world, has been reproduced and copied many times, but this version is one of the most complete, brilliant, and faithful of them all. The project, which has been documented on their channel, has seen various challenges.
Ayato started his motorcycle with the Yamaha Majesty 250 and found a way to customize it to suit his demands. It is a large structure, almost entirely manual, and is designed with the idea that it is completely legal under Japanese traffic law.
In other words, this YouTuber with the best mechanical knowledge always wanted to be active and able to circulate on the streets of Japan. Although the procedure is entirely hand-made, Ayato has proved that it has ordered some parts and products that have already been created and marketed, separating the previous Yamaha and shaping it—welding the elements he needed for his vision.
You have faced challenges and made some aesthetic and ergonomic findings. For instance, Kaneda’s motorcycle had a seat that was not quite clear in anime and manga, so he designed the section in such a way that we could consider a type of bucket seat, in which the driver is Like yourself and what makes you feel more comfortable. He has worked very hard on the chassis, trying to make it look like the picture we all have in our heads; the front part, the wheels, and even the handlebar have to be adjusted, which means it’s about to be the most delusional time of the year, as well.
If you adore the customization of motorcycles and the mechanics of the world around this type of vehicle, it’s worth it. Its last clips show how Ayato has added LED lighting to the set, giving it a truly futuristic look.
