This hubless cool chopper bike by Amen Design is the world’s first fully functional motorbike with two hubless wheels.
The biker boys at Amen Design have built a chopper based around Franco Sbarro’s hubless wheels. And it really rides! Hubless (centreless) wheel is a type of wheel with no center hub. Advantages of the hubless wheel includes includes decreased weight, lower center of gravity, increased braking leverage, and more accurate steering. We think it looks like a bike from the movie ‘Bolt’…pretty cool but changing the tyres would be a nightmare.

Have you seen this cool alligator bike or ‘gatorbike’! A charity fundraiser decided to spread an entire alligator skin over a custom-built chopper motorbike and sell 1,000 raffle tickets at a snappy £75 each.
Jim Jablon, owner of the Wildlife Rehab centre in Hernando, Florida, devised the GatorBike to raise funds for the charity, which rescues neglected or abused exotic pets. The 120mph reptilian ride features the skin and skull of an alligator culled and donated by state officials. ‘I thought, “Why not put it to good use?”’ said the 45-year-old.
The skin is detachable but the head is fixed perm-anently into the handlebars and has the speedometer implanted into the back of the skull. And the prize draw is set to be just as quirky as the toothy two-wheeler itself – with the winning ticket to be plucked from a pool full of alligators by a 22-year-old model. ‘It’s not dangerous,’ said Mr Jablon. ‘We’re not going to tie a chicken to her or anything.’
