A Homemade Jet Bike?! It’s Just as Crazy as It Sounds.

Crazy Rocketman looks like Santa Claus — but in flannel and a rocket-fueled sleigh. Watch him blast off on his ‘steampunk’ bike.

This jet bike may not sound super intimidating, but it does pack a wallop on the tarmac. Watch Crazy Rocketman (aka Robert Maddox) push the bike to its limits on the desert flats.

Enjoy the crescendo — surely this thing is about to blow up! — as the bike’s fat tailpipe heats up to a fiery orange and Maddox’s Merlin beard whips ever faster in the wind.

Check out Crazy Rocketman’s YouTube channel for more rocket-fueled shenanigans.
