Additional InfoIt has been built by Buck around a Sportster engine which is now unrecognizable behind its complete metal suit. All the components (frame, body and so) are handmade from tubes and sheet steel. The front wheel comes from a Suzuki on which Buck has made two perimetric brake discs, on which act calipers from a scooter. Buck also made the rear brake system. He has done all of the engineering and electric works too. As it is very difficult to portray in a few words all that has been done, you'd better take a look at this SpaceSter if you want to walk on the Moon... Because it is not a Bike, it is a SpaceSter !
