Mmm, not my cup of tea but some nice engineering work.
Not sold on the front forks- badly balanced weight-wise? Looks clumsy in my opinion.

The engine is way too small and classical shaped for the "style" of the rest of the bike.

hm.... basically Nik's Bandit 600 thingy but with an old Triumph engine

I bet it was built by the same guy (can't recall his name, big fella from the NCC); especially since he has a thing for reverse head engines.

that's the one, no idea if he's still around....
in any case, both bikes in question were built 5+ years ago

I had him on facebook for a while and then he simply disappeared.
He had a fantastic photo album of things he'd built over the years and I went looking for it again after his FB account closed and found passing reference to him passing away.

Some of his last posts on FB were going on about diabetes and also wrapping his legs with cling film because of sores on them etc, Which I now know is close to the end of the road especially if you don't look after your self really really well at that stage. So I can only assume it was that which got him. I'd like to think I was wrong but he was a prolific custom builder and there is virtually nothing new regarding his bikes for a few years now.

Mind you I spoke to him a few times on the chat thing when I was plotting my current diesel bike and trying to bounce a few ideas off him regarding car engines and he was a gloriously grumpy old cunt when it came to commenting on my plans.

I liked how he designed his own bikes to fit his large stature.
