i think the "turbine" was a little one for looks. looked like it was powered by a traditional engine.

Yeah I kept thinking the same thing.

But why the would you just add a turbine on the bike, sounds like someone has too much time on their hands.

Yeah it's a small turbine used to power r/c jet planes. It doesn't have enough thrust to power it.

Im sorry but now that I know the turbine is fake, and the fact that it does absolutely nothing this is a fail. It would be neat if the bike had exhaust coming out the rear tail, and he somehow made it look like the exhaust was a turbine or something.

Idk just my opinion. i'd also hate to have to have a bottle of that r/c jet fuel also, talk about an explosion awaiting...
