I think that Steam Punk Ironhead is great. It's nice to see someone build something very different from the usual bobber crap we see on this site.

Well done to whoever you are.

No idea why the Steampunk thing appeals to me, but it does.

Possibly because you could actually ride that one.

Awesome cool factor but a lot of cash for essentially a dust collector.
