The only thing missing from this edition of the Weekend Awesome is Kenny Loggins singing “Danger Zone” and Tom Cruise playing beach volleyball in a pair of jeans.
Commuters in Tampa, Fla. such as the person filming this week’s video were treated to the site of the Freedom 1 Jet-Cycle, a Honda Gold Wing modified to look like an F-106 Delta Dart fighter jet. Created by Ron Gallops, the Freedom 1 features a full jet-style cockpit and a custom-built turbine that burns actual JP-4 jet fuel.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Freedom 1 is that it is completely street legal, although Gallops folds up the wings so it doesn’t get too wide for traffic. Gallops displays the Freedom 1 at air shows and other events where he can put the wings down and fire up that afterburner.
