Can’t a Guy Sell a Batpod with Twin Shotguns and Flamethrowers on eBay Without A Disclaimer?

Apparently not:


PLEASE NOTE: Although the flamethrowers and cannons are in a fully authentic & operable state as pictured, the cannon trigger breach blocks and flamethrower pressure release valves are NOT INCLUDED as part of this sale listing. Without these components, the weapons are INOPERABLE. These INOPERABLE weapons that are included as part of this specific sale are to be considered as DECORATION ACCESSORIES ONLY. …..BUT…..  If the BUYER wishes to take possession of the cannon trigger breach blocks and flamethrower pressure valves (required to make the weapons operable), then he must contact the SELLER and ask that these parts be donated and shipped separately (for free). The BUYER is under NO OBLIGATION to take possession of these extra parts . . .


The flamethrower system uses Argon pressurized tanks and unleaded gasoline. Click on link above to see video of flamethrowers in action. I am including a filled Argon tank, regulator, & required fittings for this system with the sale. The tank can be refilled at any welding supply store. Never use compressed air to pressurize the flamethrower fuel tanks as this is a deadly risk! I am including a brief instructional video (USB flashdrive) which clearly shows the safe & proper procedure for filling the flamethrower system.

The 12ga. cannons are single-shot [see: top picture], and are activated by simply pulling the spring-loaded trigger breach block knobs. When operational, they will fire any 12 gauge cartridge. For demonstration purposes, I suggest that the operator pry open the cartridges, and then replace the lead shot with shredded paper strands. Lotsa fun and very loud! More details about the weapons are in the instruction manual.

The flamethrower and cannon assemblies are easily removed (hex-head Allen screws) if you prefer a “normal” motorcycle appearance. Re-assembly is quick & simple.

      They lost me when I saw it was electric with a 40 mile range (less on highway and hills)

        EPA approved; no worries about EPA Special Agents dressed in full tactical regalia arriving in APCs to battering ram your door in the middle of the night.

        On the other hand, the local sheriff may not be so amused or constrained.

          Nj DEP might come a knockin though and my local PD (was the highest paid in the county despite only being a 2 sq mile town) is always interested in acquiring new toys to go along with their jet ski’s, dirt bikes, golf cart, motorcycles, boats, side by side, quads and whatever else unnecessary purchase they made on tax payer dollars to police 2 sq miles of town.

    This should make next year’s NYC motorcycle gathering much more interesting unless the firepower and paint scheme gets this classified as an ‘assault motorcycle’ and banned in NY.

    1. avatar BillF says:

      The Littlest Mayor would have them banned, then have two dozen built for his own security detail.

  2. avatar Jay1987 says:

    Sweet bike I wish I could afford it that’d make my commute much more entertaining.

  3. avatar DisThunder says:

    Remember kids, Batman hates guns! Except when he doesn’t.

  4. avatar DKing says:

    Does this ship to an FFL?

  5. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    That is a sweet looking scooter. Electric? I’m OK with that on my 9 mile commute.
    Bring on the flame throwers for the Friday bar-b-ques at the office.

  6. avatar Soccerchainsaw says:

    Is it just me or does that picture make it look like the bike is unsteerable?

    1. avatar Jay1987 says:

      Its steerable you just have to lay down on it and grab the handles bout half way down the forks.

      1. avatar Bob Wall says:

        One pot hole and you get a face full of triple-tree…

  7. avatar BillF says:

    Looks steerable to me. Took me a minute to find the handlebars. The flamethrowers are short enough for the forks to turn.

  8. avatar Stinkeye says:

    What good are forward-facing flamethrowers? You’d have to be stopped to use them, unless you want a face full of burning gasoline…

    In any case, cue a visit for this guy from the ATF in 3…2…1…

  9. avatar Stephen M. says:

    Someone build me one with, say, the 2.3L triple out of a Rocket III in it. And maybe with a more effective flamethrower.

    The ultimate in Get The Hell Out Of My Way machines.

  11. avatar Jason says:

    I sold my ACOG on ebay a while back. They took down my ad twice. Once for showing it on an AR-15 (EVIL!) and the other for just having the letters AR in the ad. So I replaced it with scary black rifle.

    They used to allow you to list any accessory that was CA legal. Then some moron bought a 10 round magazine on ebay and went on a shooting spree at VA Tech, and the ebay lawyers freaked.

    1. avatar DisThunder says:

      I tried to sell a freakin’ Krink dust cover and a muzzle brake, and they pulled the listings. Because we all know the scariest part of an AK is the goddamn dust cover…

  12. avatar Charles5 says:

    To the article title: those look forward facing, not rear facing to me.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Right you are, Ken. Headline amended.

  13. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Wow. Just — wow.

  14. Who would want this if they are not actually working?

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Read more carefully. They are disabled for purposes of sale on eBay, because he can’t sell guns on eBay. However, should you want them to work again, you simply tell him, and he will include the parts (and instructions) to restore them to working order, at no charge. Kind of like selling magazine repair kits (which contain all the parts of disassembled magazines) to people in California because they can’t buy the assembled magazines.
