I kind of warm to that, the price tag is mental however.

Bad? :o Bad? :shock: Bad? :(

The only appropriate response would be to quote a graffiti-ed advert I saw on a Michael Jackson poster originally saying
"I'm bad!"

to which some wag had added

"Bad? Utter F*cking Shite you mean!" :lol: :lol: :lol:
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!

Don't like the bike at all but I appreciate the rider; not sure about her idea of safety gear tho.

My only query is, why does her bra not match her pants? Oh yes the bike....waste of an engine.

The "stealth" style bike that's also in the photos (6-cyl jap engine but i forget which) was at the NEC show the other year and looked superb; I dunno about this one...........I'm sure the engineering is very good but don't like the looks. Or do I? :roll:

Someone has failed at steampunk there! Some nice detailing on the bars, but the whole lot looks weird. Be almost OK of they ever do another League of Extraordinary gentlemen film I suppose. Don't get the cable operated disc idea at all, it clearly isn't meant to ever be ridden.

utterly fantastic build . he could have took the easy route and built a BSA like every one elses , but instead he built a multi award winning custom wich is a strange looking beast granted !!

but to be fair the build quality far exceeds what most of us achieve !!
