Looking like the love child of a chopper and an old steam engine, the unique vehicle can make any diehard steampunk fan simply drool just looking at it.Although named after Jack Sparrow’s notoriously fast ship, van Tuil’s amazing creation is anything but fast.

Powered by a functioning steam engine, with a rear wheel driven by a large crankshaft, the unique motorcycle can reach an unimpressive top speed of just eight kilometers per hour.

That might not be nearly enough for speed junkies, but those who enjoy a leisurely ride will definitely appreciate the chance to take in the scenery at a very slow pace.

While Higgins’ design was a digital creation, the Black Pearl is an actual motorcycle that could cause wet dreams to diehard steampunk fans.
