[STEAMPUNK] Lord Chesterfield's Speedier Bike

Lord Chesterfield wanted a quicker way to zip around the cobblestones of Olde London Town, so he tasked his put-apon Chinese assistant with building him a 'Speedier Bike'. The result: Chesterfield's favourite red bicycle with fireworks bolted onto it.

Just some tablescraps (well, floorscraps really). Not sure this is completely 'Steampunk', due the the lack of steam-power. However, it has tweed, wackiness and a mysterious Oriental assistant with a hook for a hand, so I figure it counts. Perhaps there are alternate genres? Bicyclepunk? Fireworkpunk? That-screaming-face-that-Rocko-loves-so-much-punk? ;)

I'm not exactly sure if it's steampunk, but I'm likin' it nonetheless. It's simple, effective, and fun[ny]. I love the torch also. Good design imo. One thing I would change is the fireworks. The colors on it need to be more bombastic/contrasting: may I suggest making them multicolor blue and gold/yellow? Do whatever, I don't care, but nice job anyways. :)
Because I'm a bothan...or a brick. Bo out.

Heh, you've got a point about the fireworks. I just grabbed the ones from the old Adventurers Dragon Fortress set.
