I am glad that you will show photos of your 1/12 bike models. But you missed in your list the Honda low rider models which comes with that C x W figure. Have you already completed the kit? I have it too (kit and figure) and I have just started with completion of the kit.

Ha!  You spotted him Dusan!  :eusa_clap: TBH I bought it primarily for the figure, as I don't really have the skills to build the kit!  :bawling:  Looking forward to seeing yours though.... :nice:

All 3 well worthy of sitting in a envirement controlled garage, being pampered and cared for, and taken for a ride on a regular base.

A friend of mine drove a Jota like that a looong time ago. Very uh...'intriguing' thing to ride. When it drove   :rolleyes:

Seen 1 Paul Smart in real life so far (on the road). No comments. Nuff said when i still remember that meeting.

And that BSA looks splendid. Wonder if Thriumph got their 'Rockt III' name there?

3 excellent bikes, 3 excellent models.

I've not got round to photographing the Triumph Rocket III yet - as I'm trying to do a pre vs post Y2k thread  :rolleyes:  - but this is a great link into my next (and FAVOURITE) model, which is the:

Triumph Hurricane X-75...a truly one off design for it's time in the UK market (1973), with an unprecedented and AMAZING LOOKING one-sided 3 exhaust configuration.....
