A stunning bike ruined by by the colour choice.

Very reminiscent of something that comes out of ones ass, after a heavy nite on the drink.

What the hell do you drink Sinnerman??!! :shock: :? :lol:

I don't think you'll find a better example of a pretty unique bike, but yeah, not really my fave colour either.

The bike is awesome, if you can live with the "DOSE of DIARRHOEA" colour choice.

Lovely rare bike, beautiful. While colour is a personal thing I'll admit I dislike the gold overload. I can't recall any time over the last 30 years when all gold was popular or tasteful. (Except for a box of Terry's All Gold chocolates)

Sure paying a company a huge profit for something rare and desirable is one thing, but i couldnt consciously pay premiums to them to end up with something that looks like a "dose of diarrhoea".

But then its been proven time and time again, you can take something quite special and ruin it with little more than bad taste.

I guess, if you can afford upward of £5k (for a starting bid) for it, whats a grand more for a tasteful high quality paint finish...!

I couldn't live with that paint either and, if possible, it's made worse by the white seat and grips.

Lovely bike, but that rather niche choice would have to be your taste to make it worthwhile.
