The speeder is instantly recognizable, and yet the balloon gives it a unique steampunk twist. What strikes me most, though, is the way the driver is dressed. This thing can’t possibly go much faster than 10 miles per hour, and yet he’s all decked out in a mask and goggles! It’s that type of humor — whimsy, I guess — that makes for good steampunk.
