Project Lincoln Building “India’s First Batpod” – Find Out How You Can Support

As a part of a college project, Indian student Abhijeet Khandagale is building a new vehicle alongside fellow Batman fans. Called “Project Lincoln”, this vehicle is a reinvention of the Batpod driven by the Caped Crusader in The Dark Knight Trilogy. Right now, Project Lincoln is running a crowdfunding campaign to finalize its take on the vehicle, which will be called “Azrael”. You can click HERE to visit Project Lincoln’s website, which offers a variety of options for donating to the campaign. You can also like their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter. Best wishes to Project Lincoln as they seek to complete this impressive goal.

In
the heart of the country [India], a city known for its Orange produce is all
set to be known for having the first Batpod inspired vehicle being
built in the city. Abhijeet Khandagale and his team from Nagpur have
undertaken this massive task of building this Batpod inspired bike,
they like to call it, Project Lincoln- Azrael.

Following the same spirit, “Let’s build it full size”.

The
dream was started 3 years back, and through several modifications,
ups and downs later, these guys have come close to realizing this
dream. The bike is almost complete with the testing going on, and
soon expecting a release of their test ride. The bike stands at 3
feet tall and 8 feet wide, sporting two 195mm 17” tires. The
vehicle is set to derive power from a Pulsar 220cc FI engine which
was salvaged from a bike wreck. The interesting thing to note about
this vehicle is that it is completely built of second hand parts, and
no stock parts have been used. A 100% custom designed vehicle from
these engineering minds.

Another
notable fact is that there are just 5 replicas of this Batpod
worldwide; and what sets these guys apart from them too is, they
didn’t replicate it, they titled their attempt as ‘Project
Lincoln: Reinventing the Batpod’ and from the pictures it is pretty
much visible that they did make some re-engineering to it. The
project was head by Abhijeet Khandagale (about.me/abhijeetkhan) and
the designs were made by Ankit, the lead designer who is now studying
at Academy of Arts, San Fransisco, CA and Zina Dk who is from
Tunisia. The rest team was 12 member huge, who came in at various
phases of the project.

These
young batmaniacs, were supported by Arun Bajaj, the local Bajaj Auto
dealer; Sharif Engineering Works, who helped them in fabrication;
Dave Welsh from Chopper City USA and Mehul Gohil from Official TDKR

who gave in important ideas during the process.

These
young Crusaders need your help. They recently launched a crowd
funding campaign with the help of mYwindow (mywindow.me) and it would
be great if you could support the project by donating or sharing the
word. Head over to www.projectlincoln.co
