Well... it kinda crossed the line between ride and ..... art? ....

Not my thing, but you have to appreciate the amount of work put on to it.

I probably know lads with regular bikes being used less that the one above, as at least it looks like they took her to a few shows.

A lot of work gone into it . It’s a pity the end result is just tacky IMHO.
Some custom builders can recoup what they’ve invested in time and materials ( some even make money !) but only if they have the flair and imagination to make something that people will actually desire .
It’s a no from me .

Obviously lots of hard graft put into the build but I don't think it's either practical or desirable. Destined to be a permanent trailer queen I'm afraid. Also, the asking price kills it dead

If the swingarm was a couple of feet longer, you'd swear it was made in America.
