Looks nice but, with the length of those shocks it, won't corner very well  ;)

I love the overall shape of it but I just cant get my head around that huge hole in the middle where all the usual gubbins live behind the side panels. I suppose I could carry my handbag there but....that's really not my style 🤣🤣🤣
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

That's a pretty neat go at making a downpipe set in stainless in something like the original design.

Could probably get good money from making those.
