    That's like asking why ford didn't make the Mustang Mach III. A case of just too much cool.

    And then there's this, which actually was put into production... for whatever reason. The zuki is much better looking.

    That Mach 3 looks cross-eyed and constipated.

    The DN-01 is much uglier in person.

    i did a search for kaneda's bike from the movie Akira, to see if anyone had built a functional replica, and i found the g-strider to be pretty dang close. then i saw the picture was dated 2004 and wondered what happened to it. looks like a pretty bad ass little scooter. for those that don't know, this is kaneda's bike.

    The Mach 3 looks like it had large and heavy object dropped on it. Just doesn't look rite to me!

    i really think that when hes showin off his bike and explaining its functions, there is a circular bmw sticker on the side of it. i could be wrong, but i dont think i am. im kinda a big fan of akira.

    besides the thing was electric, 2wd, 200 somethin hp, electric creamic rotor bla bla bla.:whistle:

    CANADA:laugh:
