    Man, even before we had known that Anakin rides an S - Swoop in Episode II, my friends and I had started on our aray of ridable S - Swoop props. We've gone to the local junk / scrap - yard, and gotten six, bulky motorcycle bodies. We've set up shop in my garage, and we've started our assembly line of weilding and customizing.

    Also, I wanted to ask: Has anyone seen a swoop / speeder bike in a Fan Film? I hope to be doing something extra - ordinary that no one has yet done, or that only a few people have done.

    There is a Biker Scout's Speeder Bike that has 2 black legs sticking out the bottom somewhere out there. ;)

    Speed is how fast the 2 legs can run. ;)

    That would be Jeff ALlen and company at Studio Creations with the speeder bikes.

    Well, we scraped one of the S - Swoops -- the Sith Apprentice's -- and we've given him the Sith Speeder, a modified version of Darth Maul's.
    For our Mandalorian Bounty Hunter, we're going to customize his Swoop, with skulls and guns, ans the sort!

    I know of a guy who painted his car to resemble the A-Wing with detachable guns, I was wondering if someone actually did that to there motorcycle. It would be funny & cool to actually see a swoop bike on the streets.

    As you can see, my Garrison cut funding for Speeder Bikes this year, so we have to make due with what we have left to use. They aren't as fast, but I guess it'll have to do.
