Believe it or not, this is what he started with:

Luxury cruiser for sale on Ebay UK DSCF0072

No, I don't mean one just like it, that is the bike when he began his "work".

This is an early iteration of his "art":

Each to their own.

Cool 
With a lot of imagination and a few bob it could have been transformed into something like this. Very Happy

One man's meat is indeed another man's poison, but this rather takes the biscuit.  Imagine the horror of an assembly worker if he could have foreseen the bike's destiny on the day it rolled off the production line.  The gearchange and rear brake must be so easy and comfortable to use; one has to ask oneself why they were not designed like that in the first place.  The top box would certainly hold lots of tins of Stella, but I suspect that the handling would not inspire confidence if it were full of lager.  You would probably need all that alcohol to help erase the heart-stopping memories of the ride once it was over.   It would also help numb the pain caused by being seated on that scrap of 'racing foam'.

The only saving grace is the amazing amount of apostrophes in the advert: you get fantastic bang for your buck, if you are a fan of misplaced punctuation.affraid

The bike he started with is one I would keep, and as he went to a larger topbox to carry his tinnies, it may have been prudent for someone to tell him that a similar amount of tinnies can be carried in the original panniers and topbox combined, after all what else is there to carry? we have quilted riding outfits, surely they double as a bed.

I know this is an inclusive forum and of course it's the owners property so he can do what the hell he wants but that's a waste of an apparently really good bike. What a shame, there are fewer and fewer decent K's on the road and this is one less. There are plenty of ropey ones with shagged bodywork to use as donors at less costs? I don't get it.Shocked

I agree.  That was a waste of what looked like a really good bike, I'm not showing my wife, she's a 75s fan and it would make her cry. 

I'm building a rat myself so I do like them, but I'm starting out with a collection of bits and building it from nothing to build what I want, I'm not ruining a good bike but bringing life back to a bunch of bits that are sitting on a shelf.
