I suggest there are two zeros too many;
- one in the price,
- and one who sells the bike.

Only takes one idiot with more money than sense to think he is getting something special.

I might look at an old steel tractor seat for my bike. What with my shiny tank and all I might get $12,652 if I register it in WA.

If you look closely you can see he has solved the problem of our handlebar hangers breaking by using a completely different set, maybe RT should see these

Yah see, every now and then one of these builders does something different.
Notice the side cover hanger on the right side of the tank. Stuck the ignition in there.
Left side still looks unfinished with that big hole.

Note to self, vinyl kevlar = +$12,500 to price tag. Sweet.

It always amazes me what people think a coupla cans of rattle-black, a lick of polish and a few metal cast-offs bolted to a chopped and stripped-down, otherwise perfectly functioning bike, will do. The end result, to me, is a disturbing, disjointed, visually disorganised pile....but it's art. Art always costs, and sometimes it disturbs.

Perhaps the seller should attempt to foist it off on some well-meaning, well-funded municipality looking for a statue for the centre of town.

I wonder just how much fun it is going into a bumpy corner on this thing; that sprung saddle must provide loads of feedback about what is happening underneath you.

He's certainly dreaming about the price he is asking, but it was nightmares he was having when he was at the design stage of this project.  I think it is a case of if he's not on drugs, he sure ought to be.  This is not my cup of tea at all to look at, and I despair to think that someone took a machine that did many things passably well, only to turn it into something than doesn't do anything at all well.

Most of like riding past shop windows while admiring our reflection, and this would be about the only task you might wish to undertake on this bike.

Butt ugly.

Back in 2012, Larry R. sold his K75 customization, "Beauty".  He was asking $12,000, but I imagine he settled for less.  THAT was a reasonable asking price.  Not this.

What amuses me is that part of the purpose is to customise the bike so you have an individual thing which in reality ends up being the same as every other bike that has had the "treatment" as my dad used to say.

Dangerous pastime. I know some one who did that on his new cx500 (fool) and drove it right into a metal skip that had just been placed in the road outside a shop being refurbed (bigger fool)

He is in Queensland.

Yes I do like the bit about 'round tyres' - certainly has one pondering....

Maybe he is not as crazy as one at first assumes. For every guy out there that can dream up a thing like that, there is possibly ONE (but surely only one?) that might buy such a bike for $8.5k

After all - Red Bull have made millions by selling nothing more than a well advertised 'concept' (personally - I simply hate the fact that we are so easily duped. As a species I mean)

Are "original" tyres really a selling point when they are 31 years old? 

Great fuel consumption though 4l/100km which means with his 21litre tank, he has only filled the tank twice in the 1100km ridden - maybe there is even some "original" fuel too?

I expect they stick out far enough not to allow the short flat little bags to touch the ground, but the dimensions look easy to get off your own bike. Only the bag width would be the last determining factor.
I trust it bolts up the centre stand handle, by the look of it.
