For transportation he has the suped-up big wheel bike called the HAWG (Hydrogen-enhanced, All Wheel Go-bike).

Background notes: Stykman is a hero of the type that is rarely seen. In the vein of the Tick and Captain Klutz, he is totally inept as a hero and only survives by luck and the ability to withstand severe amounts of violence.

The character Stykman was revealed to the World in 2002, but only as a preview poster at the San Diego Comic Con. The actual comic was not published until 2005. At the time, it was only sold at cons where it created a fan base and sufficient attention to be noticed by Diamond Comics Distributors.

The series only lasted three issues, after which it went on hiatus. An attempt at reviving the series by crowd funding in 2018 apparently apparently failed, and no new plans have been revealed at the time of writing.
