I'm sorry but I don't like it. It does look striking though.

People that like this sort of thing think man and dinosaurs lived at the same time, can grow a mean chin strap beard, and pop a woody when the General Lee jumps and plays "Dixie."

seriously. I have seen many different theme motorcycles (or automobiles) and rarely do they ever hit the mark and make me think 'wow, that is really cool'. Most of the time I think about the people that made these monstrosities and wonder what kind of fucked up home-life they must have to come up with this shit.

It's an interesting design for a bike.

lol Looks like a giant jaguar hood ornament. pretty, but not the most practical in this case.

Uh, why would you want to ride around looking like you were "doing it doggy-style" with a giant, shiny cat?

No thanks. Not for free, and especially not for 300,000 quid.

looks like someone's riding around on a giant hood ornament.

I know my girlfriend is going to love to ride this.

OH and that bike is cool looking too!

I wonder if he realizes the cat is almost an exact copy of an earlier piece? Sometime in the Fifties it was a popular bit of ceramic, about a foot long: I remember it atop a friend's family TV (they had the first one in the neighborhood) and some other places.

It's an interesting design for a bike. It reminds me of something you'd see in a batman movie (perhaps a cat woman bike?)....Mike
