...and I'd push it everywhere in case the noise of the motor would make people look my way.

And I'd still wear a full face helmet so I won't be recognised...in another country so no-one knows me.

Now that, to me, is a thing of beauty. I have an attraction (unexplained) to steampunk, and that epitomises it.

Beats any cafe racer K into a cocked hat.

(Weird how picture 16 looks like a bobble-head that you see on a car dashboard).

As a former K1600GT owner. Ugh! affraid
Should stick to converting Harleys. They're not too sophisticated to start with.

In my opinion this is not really Steampunk.

More the look of Industrial or Post Appocalyptic.

Does look good though.

The photos in the gallery are pretty awesome. This looks very organic to me, influenced by Giger, the guy who designed the alien creatures and atifacts in the Alien quadrilogy.
I don't think its designed to be practical... its art.

Would that be what our American cousins would term as a 'Trailer Queen'?Cool
I'm imagining that is been up the road and the trashed bodywork has written it off. Suppose it would involve a bit more than a pair of brackets and a headlight.
Still couldn't see myself riding it.
The standard GT became invisible to other 'bikers' but only while you were near it or on it.

This may not be steampunk but it's certainly steam.
