Of the pics ive seen so far theres a lot of lovely builds and colour schemes.
But i think the frame itself is ugly as hell.
As i've no other experience of them, other than looks ,i'll abstain :?

I always fancied one of these years ago , but could never afford one :cry:
I have seen pictures of one on here somewhere in a very high gloss camoflage finish and it looked stunning, as was said earlier on here, the wilder the paint, the cooler these are i.m.o :wink:

Gc

but cool, as I like that they are different. And the wilder the paint scheme the better.

Tintin has four and the paint looks like Bet Lynch on a weekend piss-up in Blackpool. Different and innovative yes, but cool??

Sorry but its a 'Non' from me.


I'd still love to have one given half a chance though.

Definately 'of an era' when people were designing bikes to be very different...like the paint jobs :D

Voted uncool myself, not a bike I'd bust a gut (or my bank balance) to own and don't think it was even BITD

not sure what to do. for me it`s definately not cool.
but voting like this could mean i think it`s hot? and that`s what it is even less..
damn i am lost :shock:

I voted 'cool' purely on visuals. The rasta tiger paint and matching Bombers is definitely out there and I like the 1st pic with the disc-drive and suspender forks :D
I wouldn't want to own one but I can understand why people do.

Not as cool as GT's though :wink:

i love the fact that they are different, for no real reason, other than to be different which i think is cool, the paint jobs can be crazy which i like.

do i want one? not desperately but yes at some point when i've collected other stuff first!

are they cool though? :? hmm . . . kids are always a good indicator and i think that kids would see that and say "wow that's amazing!!" so i'll vote cool.

8)

besides, if we all don't vote "cool" then we'll never hear the end of it from tintin!! :lol:
