@solo, the long, grey poles on each side of Loki's speeder ARE the steering/control vanes.

I think that if you clipped a small panel onto the pole it would count as a control vane or something that could be imagined as being able to change the vehicle's direction in atmospheric flight. As it is now it could be confused with an antenna or ray gun.

In order to clear up any further misunderstandings about the control vane requirement I've made a helpful graphic featuring official sets:



Your bikes need something that passably resembles those common repeating features to qualify for our contest.

For my second entry: Batman and Superman!



Speeding through the streets of Metropolis and Gotham, Batman and Superman take their fight to a new level with speeders! Batman's speeder is a mix of a little old and a little new. Because superman can obviously fly, his speeder has no floor.

I have added control vanes similar to the ones on Rey's speeder. I edited my previous post.

You're absolutely right. I was too busy arguing with Ace about the minifig/trophy issue and the lack of handlebars on both bikes slipped right by. Sorry for the false hope minimitch but neither of those qualify. Even if the figure can't grasp the handlebars correctly you still need to put the effort in. Picking a non-standard minifig that can't actually use them won't excuse you from that requirement. As for the handlebars, they don't need to be a specific handlebar element, you can use other parts to build them however you see fit like others have done so far. But steering wheels aren't handlebars.

Sorry. Your right. It's been fixed.
Thanks,

Nice. I didn't even know those helmet bits fit in the ends of pneumatic Ts.

This is a rather timely contest. I will also be hosting a collaboration table at BrickWorld Chicago (June 16-19) with a
theme, set in a "Tech West" environment. Anyone that would like to show off their speeder-bikes in the BW display, send me a message via flickr and I'll fill you in on the details...

...but obviously, FBTB StarWars Days June 4-5th gets first dibs at your bikes. Respect.

Through a tragically misunderstood, garbled hologram transmission from Yoda to Mace Windu, a clown army first appeared on Geonosis. Equipped with the latest in circus armory, they showed up with a BRS (Big Red Shoe) speeder bike and a SF (Squirting Flower) bike. The BRS is designed to stomp out infantry lines with its heavy armor and massive "rib tickler" steering vanes. The SF bike is designed for peripheral attacks with a laughing liquid cannon that renders the enemy useless. by , on Flickr

City - Arctic Themed Speederbikes - Snow Fox & Caribou

Snow Fox is the smaller bike, designed for more maneuverability and as short range personal transport.
Caribou is the "chopper", optimized to cover longer, strait-line distances, and at a higher velocity.

Ski Mode

How strict is the same theme limit? Let's say I want to build bikes for a doctor from a City set and the Collectible Minifig nurse. They go together thematically, but could be considered different themes.
