Sorry - but thatís an outrageous price for what it is and the mods done (IMHO).
They may as well have a bit more cheek and ask for 50,000 euros.

It's not my cup of tea, far too bling and if I had that sort of money to spend on a bike I'd be looking at a Penigale or holding on for the BMW R18 Bobber! But I've got to admire the execution, of all the 'Bobber Build Off' bikes IMHO it was the one that came together the most, it just looked right. As to whether it's worth 20K well that's a different point but with the wheels, the paintwork, and everything else there's probably 4-5grand worth of bits so for a custom build I don't think it's too far off the mark?

To me that is not a proper, award winning “custom bike” and again, certainly not at that price. It’s a Triumph parts catalogue thrown on a bog standard Bobber with a flashy paint job.
Bling wheels, a paint job (so what) and everything is just chromed or bolted on. Even the foot pegs are standard. I mean at least commission a one-off custom seat!

Personally, I’ve seen members bikes on this site with much more passion and creativity poured over them than the shiny, blingy thing up for sale on eBay.

Hi have to agree with @eisen77 ,

I always applaud any build and if someone falls in love with this and trumps up that cash then good on them. But for me it's a little too 'flashy' and not to my personal taste.

Definitely seen some forum members bikes that are much more classy.

Cheerio,

Roy

I wouldn't disagree with any of that, but in a world where people are prepared to pay 17.5k for a TFC Thruxton and stupid money for CVO Harleys, which are essentially accessory catalogue customs then I'm sure they'll find a buyer.
