Thumbs up Nice rattie Knucklehead in Putney today...

I was in Putney getting fleeced for parts at Riverside today, and this Knuckle was parked outside,- a punters bike, I spoke to the guy who said that he bought it back from L.Vagas two years ago as a total write off.
Cool bit of tank work with a cut down sporty tank with the hand change gate fabed on to it. (pity the pictures don't show it that well.







So yet again I'm tempted to sell my body and soul to finance my latest whim.

Just leave it to medical research, you'll get more for it!


I can't say I like that tank set-up, but it's been well done and it is good to see a Knuck being used.

I like it...

But it needs more chrome.

And some flames

Cheers,
Rob.

I can't wait that long so I'm open to cash offers for either.

That tank was neat the silver lines are bare metal were the tank had been cut welded and ground, from what I can work out the fittings for the shift gate were brazed inside the tank when it was apart,-really neat.

Thought it looked a bit skinny. Almost like a speedway tank isn't it?

It must of only held a couple of gallons max, the guy was saying he did a rally in France last year on it,- must of been filling up constantly- very cool tank but I don't know if I could live with that range.
