Not only that, he's buggered up the pedals so they are the wrong way around like modern bikes!

Hes buggered up more than the pedals IMHO....

I saw a pic of a bobbed Panther that looked really quite good.

It wasn't this abomination.

Absolutely!
What a strange looking contraption, despite all that effort and engineering expertise.
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!

This is so much prettier!

Maybe a little simplifying of the tinware, brackets etc. if you really must fiddle with it.

I bet the original bike is nicer to ride as well! :lol:

This is nice too
