As with the Mach 5, this iconic bit of 1980’s pop culture from Japan is too big – and too cool – to ignore. Seen in the animated feature Akira, the futuristic motorcycle belongs to the movie’s protagonist, Shotaro Kaneda. The film is riveting, with many people considering it the pinnacle of 1980’s Japanimation. Also, similar to the Mach 5, the fictional, two-dimensional motorcycle has managed to find its way into the real world, with this bike being regarded as the finest custom replica around.
