Default Brit Styled Sporty

I think this one is going to be a little polarizing.

I didn't like it at first glance, but the more I look at it, the more I like it.

A rubbermount 1200R, done up with the lines of a classic brit-bike - kinda ineresting. I'd ride it.

Ride it? Hell, I'd love to own it. That ought to start a conversation or two.

I wonder where the exhaust came from and how it runs...

I think it's pretty well done. At first glance it doesn't look like a Sporty. My eye caught the highlight and tank first, then I noticed the engine.

A more receptive acceptance than I'd predicted - kudos...

Well done. Fine looking bike. I bet it's really fun to ride.

Maybe swap out the bars for some apes.
