Chevrolet took wraps off its latest car – the Batmobile from the LEGO Batman Movie. They’re marketing it just like their other cars, and we bet if you did pay them $48 million, they’d figure out a way to make you one. For now, we’ll just have to settle for this. Or THIS.

Instead of hiring a welder to fix his car, Instructables member Mr-Mash thought he’d do the welding himself. The problem is, he didn’t know how to weld. To teach himself, he picked up a book and made a bicycle with car wheels. He says the end result is not that hard to ride.
