It's different, but not butchered.
I may be too old to ride this style of bike, but I personally don't dislike it.

Sorry teacher,...... I didn't understand the question Evil or Very Mad
No way that I would pay £9,500.00 for it. Not even $9,500

Didya know Dunlop made the tyres, they're called the Sport Daemon!? They look an awful lot like Pirelli's version. :|

I've got under $4000 into my Big Block. I reckon it wouldn't sell for $2000. And this for £9500!!!? A bit rich that, yeah.

I'd say its butchered. Look at the rear end.... What has he done with the frame??
The top suspension mounting has been lowered (??) which effectively raises the back of the bike.
The rear wheel is so low he has to put a lump of timber under the centre stand to be able to use it.
The drive shaft is at an odd angle.
Raising the rear end like that would also change the front geometry slightly. Good or bad, I couldn't even guess.
Not to mention the totally ridiculous price. Says "tank is hand-made" ..... whaaaat!
Makes no mention of being registered. I wonder if it would pass an MOT or 'Bluey' as we call it over here.

Have to agree with you Mike.... this one would have to take the prize.

Fugly. It's obviously someone's pride and joy and undeniably a lot of effort has gone into it, but as him above points out, an equal amount of lack of thought has also gone into it.

It's not the worst I've seen but what a WHOPPING price and as mentioned, the "hand made tank" claim is hilarious. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Not bad, a lot of work went into it , judging by the video, and like boatbuilding, he'll never get his money back.
The swingarm does indeed look to be at a dangerous angle.
The video brought me to another one, which i prefer (nice spoked wheels)

How have we survived up to now without a handmade tank or Barracuda indicators? I feel awful not having a Monza gas tank cap.

Looking at what's out there I could buy a K1 off James Sherlock AND a K100 outfit and still have change. Oh, I get to keep my RT too.

But.........makes a nice toy. But, if I want a toy I would be wanting a Le Mans or 860!! They might break my heart with electrics but they do induce an ear to ear smile.

Personally I prefer this fine example but being "old school" I'd want a clear screen.
I also like the spoked wheels.  Very Happy

If you check my "old" rebuilt page (The one that started this forum), even if I bought the bike for $2,500, at the end, it cost me over $6,000.
The bike ended in a like new condition but I knew that I would never get my money back if I wanted to sell it.
Only passion and pride makes sense for you to rebuilt a bike.
Never expect to get your time and money back unless you have something classified as a collector item.

I think you'd have a bit of trouble squeezing a 140/80 on the rear of that :clown:
