Isn't even something new - Dennis Hopper & Robert Redford might like it!
Not my taste at all, but does seem to be well executed although at a crazy price.
I do wonder whether you could even see over the tank when seated.
Should have warned us, that cannot be unseen....
Amazing what can be achieved when you combine having too much time & money with not enough taste...
Only IMHO of course. No offence to Hobot.
Well at least the primary case is still level, they always seem to end up with a tilt, but its downhill from there.
I never saw the point of something like that, it's a motorcycle - but it's unrideable, so that defeats the object of it being a motorcycle.
It might aswell be a set of car park railings.
One would think that someone with the good sense to acquire a Norton in the first place, would have the sense not to make it into an abomination.
Or perhaps it goes more like this ..... Someone who is too stupid to know what a Norton is, can be expected to create such an abomination.
It is ignorance, as well as poor taste.
I'd ride that bad boy and look good doing it. I wouldn't buy or build it but it's nice to see something besides yet another perfect restoration.
Buy It Now $79K
Maybe a recent new Brough Superior buyer will be interested, to "round out" his collection...
well I used to work with a guy at UPS in my younger daze who said…"alan, some people would eat dookie if'n it's baked just right."
Perfect restorations are actually QUITE rare. Even decent restorations are fewer than customs, especially customs with flat, brown seats...
Two very cool things. Look at that exhaust and how it wraps around the engine and tranny.
Are those carbs splayed? That's pretty neat.
And that head steady, gorgeous.
Someone spent a whole lot of time on that bike. Sure the overall look is questionable but the detailing is immaculate.
I agree Swoosh!
Do you think the oil lines to the head are actually copper or a look-alike plastic?
If they are actually copper there may be a risk of age hardening followed by cracking.
The look great anyway - I wonder where they were sourced?
I'm sure the way those pipes have been smashed down it would flow real well.
Mr Horton - you're not confusing the head-steady (work of art) with the oil lines? They don't look smashed down at all.
A collaboration of Andy Warhol, Rube Goldberg and Pablo Picasso? The routing of the bare front brake cable is cool!
In any case, it is a work of art and not serious transportation.
The oil lines look like copper, but they could be copper-plated steel. Given the attention to detail on the other aesthetics of the build, the entire oil system may well be custom made.
