• Building the Empire Strikes Bike

      In case you didn't know it, today is Bike to Work Day, so in the spirit of thinking green and good health, StarWars.com is sharing the transformation of a Skywalker Ranch staff bike into an Empire Strikes Back-themed super-cruiser.



      Although originally conceived as a showpiece to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back at Comic-Con and Celebration V in 2010, The Empire Strikes Bike was ultimately unveiled late in the year as a gift to the fans who have supported Empire and the Star Wars saga for over three decades. While the bike has its official roots with Lucasfilm, its creation was purely a fan endeavor.

        Some very cool stuff in there, but at first blush it looks like the bike from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. The handlebars were my favorite, closely followed by Slave I on the front.
