Excuse the crappy phone pics but all I had with me today

I was pleased they were very inpressed with my Custom V-Rod
I have a rather large rear end and it dont like corners
Lovely bike :D

Of interest my plate is VR02 FAT, A nice find that was

It was not through a dealer but direct special order from the factory.

We have a chopper in production as well at the moment.

As you can see there is no reg plate :twisted:

They will be part of a internal display in our new HQ which opens in July. There are some "interesting" cars planned as well ;-)

We had a meeting today to discuss whether we should syphon the petrol out or not whilst they are on display :D

Yep company colours and a lot of small bespoke detail that is company related. At least we get to claim the vat back which would buy a couple of Z3m's :shock:

The rear suspension is hydraulic so lifts on a button press if you actually take it on the road. It's down on the pics. Almost every piece on it is bespoke and I think it's the biggest bike they have ever done with a single trailing arm for the rear wheel.

OMG! What a bike!!
It's not been made to be ridden and I wouldn't ride it but I'm sure you are pleased with it! Unfortunatly, we can't realy see (or understand!) what are the bits related to your company which it make it so special!
What's your job?

lol I'll try and get one next week as I'm at another office today.

The problem is its got some fancy alarm on it so if you get too close it warns you off. If you sit on it all hell breaks loose. I'll have to get the keys.

I'll get some better pics next week if its still in the office. My boss just road it to one of the office close to his home after it was delivered and we had it in reception for a day. Its due to go to one of our warehouses for storage until our new head office opens in July.

I work for an entrepreneur and we have a range varied businesses through a main holding company. Most are property services related. He is mid 30's and very much a car nut. He's had every supercar you can think of and recently has moved onto bikes. He's had 2 "off the shelf" Harley's and then picked up the new yamaha vmax last year at which point Harley agreed to commission a couple of custom builds this being the first.

ps he loves my Z3m and owns a 993 2S in the same spec as mine. I did not even know he owned it until I bought mine at which point he pulled it out of storage with a 10k miler white 964 next to it. We keep finding cars he has tucked away.

Needless to say my job has its perks. He turned up in a Lamborghini yesturday. We are used to him just turning up in his latest supercar but he threw me the keys and said I could have it for the day if I wanted. It was a demo car from the dealer. I did an impromtu audit of some of our sites for some reason :twisted:

Gotta luv that ....................... :thumb:

I wouldn't want to register that for the road, where would the licence plate sit.
