ROOK's Dark Rhyder Speederbike

Dark Rhyder Speederbike

This model by Rook is one of my best Lego MOC speederbikes—space bikes I have ever seen. There are several reasons why this build is worth noting.
The details of this model are almost over whelming. The longer you look at it, the more things pop out at you. This might not be the biggest model yet there are a lot of things we could learn from this.
Before we go any further, just remember that it is cool to look at the Lego community's techniques and learn from one another. However it is not cool to rip off someone else's model and claim it as your own.
Have a look at the front. Do you see the way the poles are held together with slim robot arms? That looks like it adds good stability to the model without compramising the design.
The angeled headlight is a nice touch. Would a round, square or flat light have looked as good? I don't think so.
Have you noticed the handle bars yet? They are guns in bulky robot arms. That is one of the best parts of this model in my opinion. It is such a great idea. (Way to go, Rook.)
This is also a great example of a finely executed color scheme. But it has no color, you say. Not true. There are at least five different brick colors you can see it the picture. It is not solid colored, but the variation of color is not haphazard either. It flows well through the entire piece.
