I remember seeing a picture of 'illogical progression' and thinking to myself "Hmmmm. That looks like a Hardly Rideable"

Have you ever owned any bikes or trikes that arent seriously cool???
That Bandit 12 is gorgeous Its totally mean I love all types of bikes really but rats are where its at for me & bikes like illogical, futurebike & the changeling really inspire me I hope to one day build something so unique & legendary but ultimately mine I dont really care what people think of my bikes but if I built something that inspires others to pick up their tools & build something of their own I would be well chuffed keep up the good work you are a true inspiration.

'Illogical' - I cant stop looking at it!

Did you plan to make a bike that looked like that or did you just bolt stuff together and thats the result? Either way a 30k harley couldnt hold my attention for this long

it was planned.... roughly.... i knew i was goning to make a hossack front end, but i just made it up as i went along.






the original hossack front end, designed and built by norman hossack in the 1970's. BMW waited til his patents ran out, then stole the design.
