The bikes of Mad Max

The Mad Max series are well known for the crazy, custom-made bikes appearing in the movies. We’ve seen many incredible looking bikes, from the KZ1000s of the 1979 low-budget opener. Last year’s Mad Max – Fury Road is no exception.

British actor Tom Hardy, who took over from Mel Gibson in the title role, rides an insane looking ratty Yamaha R1 that has been stripped bare and modified in leopard skin and old carpet.

Check out the other bikes of Mad Max in this video. Can you guess what any of them once were, before being modified? Which one’s your favorite?
