I’ve posted up about cool electric motorcycles before, now for a rocket powered pedal cycle courtesy of some insane inventor(s) somewhere in Japan.
But wait, there’s more! I always try and value add on my posts so here’s the result of a bit of research. Let’s see what other countries have done with respect to the rather niche field of strapping a jet to two wheels.
1920s German rocket bicycles

Make your own?

This page talks of a collection of rocket bikes (and other rocket powered things).
This thing looks like you’re sitting on the saturn booster (from auto anything blog)
