A question of taste

Exactly why would anyone make their engine look like wallpaper in a Chinese restaurant? And you'd certainly need to carry that block of wood with you everywhere...should engrave that as well...

I quite like that !
That engraving was done by Don Blocksidge, an old school gun engraver and true master craftsman of a dying art.
He came to the attention of the custom bike building world when John Reed (Uncle Bunt) had him do some work on a bike which he also christened 'Old Don'

stunningly gorgeous !! if everyone wanted original factory imagination and art would die !! there's plenty of room for original and altered

if there were only two originals left of one bike customise one , you don't need a breeding pair
