STAMFORD, Lincs, UK -- Colin Furze, 29,
spent two months creating an incredible 46ft (14.03 metres)
motorbike, which can travel at speeds of up to 30mph and sets
the world record for the Longest
motorbike. Photo: To make it into the record books,
Mr Furze, who also holds the record for the world's largest
bonfire in 2007, had to drive the bike 100 metres which he
did on an airfield. (enlarge

in his back garden to celebrate his 29th birthday, using his
existing moped and buying another identical one from eBay
which he took apart.
The final motorbike measures 14.03 metres and
beats the previous Guinness world record of 9.6 metres.
"You can ride it like a normal motorbike
but steering is a bit of a problem as it has just a small
turning circle," said Mr Furze.
"I thought it would be a cool thing to do and
I'm thrilled to be in the Book of Records," he said.
"I loved BMX bikes when I was a boy and
then became interested in motorbikes and I thought it would
be fun to break a world record."
