steampunk is a style. it can include electronic devices, fashion, furniture, and just about anything else that gives it an old west technology look to it. i think all the ones listed here are fairly new and none are actually steam engines.

here is a restored steam engine bike:

We have a builder down the road that does one like the 3rd from the bottom.

They are all pretty cool.

I think that the design is pretty cool. However, these should be considered "steampunk inspired" and not actually "steampunk bikes" there are actually steam-powered bikes, and most of these are just cosmetically redesigned to match the steam punk-esque design.


EDIT: LOL I just realized I replied to a thread I remember reading a year or so back anyway that specifically stated in the first couple replies that it was a style. Hah.
