Ninj is just going to have to send up the Bat signal and hope the Bruce Wayne of design comes to his aid.

I think it needs to come and bit further forward and higher up as it looks snubby at the moment, but I can s see it works well with that back end already.

Hmmmm.

I cut think it's a thing, just a design element of this bike. I quite like it!

Really? I think the snubby is what makes the cool - still, it's your bike:

Incidentally, if I had more time I'd be up for doing this project - if you've still got it in >checks children< 12 years, let me know.

Just seen this up for sale - pretty nice conversion job, and only £6K.

The fairings make it look a bit WW2 and not quite the look you were after?

Reminds me a bit of the baddie bikes in Indiana Jones. Cool, but miles away from what you were thinking...I can't decide which I prefer.

I like that. You'd be making less of a statement as you rode round too which, with your face, might be worth thinking about.

I reckon that it'd be easier to live with and you'd use it more, based on appearance alone.

Yeah, not really the look I'm after, but a nice job and shows what can be done for not a lot. Would be a nice addition to a garage, for just popping out the a coffee or a pint of milk.

I like that. Looks just the thing for jumping barbed-wire fences while trying to escape from a Nazi prison camp.
