Star Wars is a name which came into existence in 1977, and since then has been the most popularly known media franchisee in the sci-fi genre across the world. Such has been the craze that recently the island of Nieu has accepted legal tender in form of the Darth Vader silver coin set, which the residents of the island will be able to use for transactions. Joining the league of memorabilia, or rather customized products is the Stormtrooper Star Wars bicycle, which captures the essence of Star Wars in its design to give its riders an experience worth remembering.

The bicycle has been designed by Max Denisov from Rastabike BC, who is known for expertise in producing customized versions of merchandise. This has ensured that the overall appeal and the engineering of the bike have indeed stood up to the exotic tastes associated with the TV franchisee. The frame used is a Phat cycle variety with the stretch body design and frame, on which detailed painting has been done. Along with that, there are the fiber-glass fenders and the mountings of the frame, and also the forks fitted with custom designed crowns to accommodate the prominent broad tire frames. Other special design elements include the air knob on tires, which resemble the Darth Vader skulls and the spotlights on the wheels and rear fenders which come handy during the dark, making the cycle and the rider easy to spot. Even the blue headlight on the front handle bar gives out the same appeal as on the space ship used for Star Wars.
