At first my heart sank because I thought someone had decorated a real TG500, but was hugely relieved when I looked further.
That is superb, absolutely brilliant, a great piece of work.
Cheers for posting!

There are some very clever people about. I blanch at thinking of collecting all the meterials together. It certainly beats the small motorcycles one sees about made from scrap. It puts me in mind of the fantastic skeleton driven motorcycle and sidecar that used to do the shows round here, the sidecar being modified 2CV bits. Absolutely brilliant.

The HOURS it must have taken to assemble , clean & weld even the smallest piece , a TRUE labour of love , WONDERFUL .
   I just hope lots of the public appreciate the tireless skill that went into such a creation .... Better than the Turner prize .

Better than the Turner prize .

That would be better if it was for a real Turner car rather then a pile of rubble or a collection of dandruf etc. The 'Tiger' could win if the constructer went on an art course and became fliuant in bullshit. A deal to kick back Saachi might help too.
