Taylor Reed’s Appearing Motorcycle
Creator/Designer: Taylor Reed
Builder: Taylor Reed Productions
Effect: Motorcycle appears on a platform – as seen on Season 7 of America’s Got Talent
Taylor Reed first got his idea for the appearing motorcycle in 1999 while walking through a Hobby Lobby in Las Vegas. “I saw something that triggered the thought,” says Reed.
“This is the first appearing motorcycle that can be done in the round in full sun light. For example, it can be performed in a Walmart parking lot with 20 people holding hands all the way around. And no, it doesn’t use mirrors!”
This illusion is versatile in that you don’t have to use a motorcycle, but can use any large item for the appearance.
