This Star Wars¬†speeder motorbike is one of the most impressive replicas we’ve ever seen.

Built by Vintage Works, the bike is a copy of the stormtrooper speeders from the Endor scenes in Return of the Jedi. Not only does it look incredible, but it’s a working motorcycle as well. It may not hover, but we love the “hollow” wheels they used to make it look as little like a traditional motorbike as possible.

You can see the bike in action in this video from Vintage Works, showing how the builders used 3D printing to make it as accurate as possible. They even included Star Wars sound effects, for maximum authenticity.

Sadly, fans can’t just call up and order a speeder bike like a regular motorcycle. But it probably wouldn’t survive in heavy traffic, anyway.
