I have a some illusion shows coming up in July and I also have a mini chopper and I would like to build a cheap and (safe to the bike) prop that can make the chopper appear. Any ideas?

A few questions: do you have a motorcycle in mind that you would like to make appear, and when in July are your performances?

I think you may be asking too much. To build, practice, and perform an illusion is approximately one month just seems a little unrealistic for my taste. But I'd love for you to prove me wrong. You also want to be careful about making sure that your illusion does not iterfere with any itellectual property issues. You may want to bring this up in the Triple Dare forum. I'm sure there you will find people more able/willing to help you becuase of the open nature of the forum. Best of luck to you.

There is a motorcycle appearance in Andrew Maynes book which is a simple appearance but can be strong in the right hands. Its in his Illusions book. Hope that helps out. But I do agree with Nick that your time table seems a bit unrealistic. Hope everything works great for ya!

Well myself, and two of my consultants came up with a killer effect.

Basicly the prop at first resambels Copperfields shadow motorcycle appearnce, untill all 4 sides are folded down. By the way did I mention that the base of the cabinet is 2-4 feet off the ground (so you can see under it, and the base is only inches thick "literaly").

Then the sides are lifted up (by one person)then when the front is let down, theres the motrocycle.

We have the method completly worked out, and is flawless in execution, and the mockups worked well. We have yet to finish the performance model, due to the cost, but I might get it in a month or so for my 2010 year.

I have "Motobox" for this very purpose. I'm just completing "Moto-Mation" which is Motobox with completely automated walls. I will have new pics and some video of the automation in the next few days.

I realize that I'm pretty late getting to this. We took the lead from Ian Adair's 100(maybe 101) Magic Tricks. The folding panel illusion and modified it to fit the bike. I think we have $150 in this Illusion BIKE AND ALL. It's not perfect but it's good for what Devon needs it for. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFwo8BDxytE
