Yep, it's a CBR Gatecrasher.

Rarely do bicycle frames look quite so challenging.

Thats why i bought it. Im a soft touch for any weird or unusual bike stuff. I only gave £50 for it so it was cheap enough and included the mags and original wheels.

It's a Ducati pretending to be an Sbike.

Love the look of these ... apart from the short seat tube. If only they had put a longer one in there (with supports à la Sbike), I'd buy one right away.

I am so glad that I looked at the Photobucket page! :lol:

...and see what you mean about the seat tube; it's obviously aimed a particularly narrow section of the market when it would make an excellent retro-style bike.

I'd want something strong in there like a Thomson...
