It's A Bird, It's a Plane. No, it's what?

 

It looks like it's ready to take off at any moment.

A video being shared across social media this week shows what appears to be Ron Gallops' F-106 Jet Cycle, with many wondering if it's real or if it's even street legal.

The Jet Cycle is both -- just don't expect it to fly.

Called Freedom 1, the Jet Cycle is a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle that's been modified by Gallops to look like an F-106 Delta Dart, complete with a glowing afterburner.

The result? A street-legal fighter jet with a top speed of 80 mph.

Gallops told the St. Petersburg Times in 2005 that the biggest challenge isn't driving a winged motorcycle, complete with a cockpit and landing gear. It's watching out for everyone who's watching him.

"You have to be paying attention because the people are looking at it, and they're running all over the lane," Gallops said.

Seems like that's still true today. In the video above, you can hear a horn honk as cars maneuver to get a look at Freedom 1.

The Quail Run RV Resort posted some up-close photos of the Jet Cycle on its Facebook page, including this exterior shot:
