“Excuse me! Sirs! You lot seem the type who have places to be and no time to waste. Yet, here you are, walking through the Commerce District. Perhaps you should see the newest model from... ”

“We don’t need hoverbikes.”

“Hey, speak for yourself! I could find use with a hoverbike. Bet I could rig a melood'peerah* on the side, fuel tanks on the back... Might need a heat shield though and that could really kill the handling...”

“That all sounds great. Why not step in and let Ol’ Gil ...”

“Unjarook sil’fen**! No. No hoverbikes. No more unpeerah# deathtraps. We have business to attend to. Good day, Gil.”

I like the neon green part in the center. I'd imagine it'd pulse and rotate as the hover bike moves faster. Coll and fun story to go with it. Sometimes salesmen are the biggest scum of the galaxy :9

Thanks all! Little tidbit I couldn't show off in a picture: The platform for the bike is on one of the TLG small turntables so it can rotate like some of those sterotypical car showrooms.
ALSO! One virtual cookie to anyone who knows what the inspiration for the salesman is.

@minfigCharmed: I've loved hoverbikes ever since I saw the Speeder Bikes in Return of the Jedi when I was quite young. I figured on a planet of marshes, mountains, and wastelands, hoverbikes might be the best way to get around quickly. And they look cool! I currently have three different hoverbikes based on this sort of frame built for use, mostly as background, in BF Galaxies.

@Quickblade: Pulse and rotate it would. And considering this model is the "speedster" model, being just an overpowered engine with a seat, it would be a bit of a constant glow.
