The Amazing (Real) Pocketbike PC Case Mod

We all love a good case mod. Some of our favorite case mods involve things that weren't meant to hold computers in the first place, such as a pocketbike that can hit 110 km/h.

17-year-old "Saibot" from Canada took an old pocketbike and gutted it to accept a full Intel Core i7-based system. The impressive project took 12 days of work spread over five months.

The best part of his mod was that he documented the entire process with pictures, transforming a furry bike into an amazing pocketbike PC complete with lighting effects. The user can still actually sit on the bike, but with no engine, it's not going anywhere.

Check out his build in full detail here. (Yes, we know that this mod is from nearly a year ago, but true coolness is timeless.)

    Now he needs to replace the windshield with an LCD. A few moto racing games and this would be amazing.

    Yo dawg, we gave you a PC in your bike so you can play games while you pretend to ride bike.

    I thought that was a can of Mountain Dew at first and was going to comment that the guy is now double-geek cool.

    Zooming in it's Canada Dry Ginger Ale.

    Epic Fail.

    Sure you guys can laugh but I can tell you nothing beats the feel of 2.6 Ghz of raw multicore hyperthreaded power between your legs.

    His system's bottleneck is the muffler. And I wonder how his RAM timing interferes with his ignition timing :-/
