Win World War Z on this mean green 'survival bike'

The Motopeds Survival Bike features extra gas storage, super-bright lights, a survival shovel, and a multitool. And, oh yeah, an arsenal of awesome weapons.

Zombies (or bumper-to-bumper traffic jams) won't stand a chance when you're on this superbike. Motopeds

Everyone knows that when the zombie apocalypse comes, the roads are going to be choked with traffic from drivers who abandoned their cars when they, um, lost their heads. So what you'll need to get around is a bike. And, in my opinion, there simply is no better bike for navigating your way through the brain-splattered aftermath of World War Z than the Motopeds Survival Bike: Black Ops Edition.

If you're unfamiliar with Motopeds, it's a company that "uses a 49cc-to-155cc 4-stroke horizontal OHV motor and downhill mountain bike parts mounted to a custom frame and swing arm" to create "a high-quality motorized bicycle at a great price," according to its website.

For the Survival Bike, the company has equipped its already cool-looking chassis with gear that's essential for blasting through columns of the undead, including a Barnett Recruit Compound Crossbow, United Cutlery M48 Hawk Harpoon, Gerber Fixed Blade Saw, Blackburn X6 Light System, climbing rope and carabiners, extra gas storage, and a bike mount for your iPhone, because it's important to have the right playlist banging in your ears when you're kicking some zombie butt.

The bike's not quite ready for sale yet, but Motopeds says on its Facebook page: "The Survival Motoped will be priced very soon, we just want to get all the first Motopeds out prior. We will make these bikes very affordable as well." The post also says the Survival Bike will get about 80-120 miles per gallon, so that's an another advantage it'll have with those post-apocalyptic gas supplies dwindling.

I wonder if Motoped will be taking any of the Facebook fan comments on board before releasing the bike. One commenter suggests that the air filter be enclosed in some kind of protective housing, while another wonders if the bike will be available with gas cans bigger than the gallon-ish standard size. Of all the Facebook comments though, I have to say my favorite is: "Shut up and take my soul."

Better than what the zombies are going to take if you don't get away on this bike?
