  • Being a big fan of Jim Bergerac I often long for simpler times when he was on tv - 1981- 1991 my formative years - i was 11 in 1981.
    I couldn’t afford a vintage triumph roadster being more of a Citroen lover but wanted a mode of fun (not fast) transport that’d remind me of the late 80s /early 90s.
    Here’s Jim with his motor and the bike I’m using for this project....
    Hand drawn vision to come soon

  • Hope this is going to involve some nods to the great series. Maybe some custom decals?

  • Something very mint sauce about that, looks great.

  • I knew stylistically in reminded me of something.

  • Ah, just googled mint sauce- I love that cartoon style. I have my own character I designed a while back - may upload a pic of him . He’s called Jackson Potter.

  • Nice. Following on the basis of a great drawing!

  • Yay, another triple on the way.

    2019 is going to be all about the triples.

  • 2020 will see the return of the quad.

  • Wonderful

  • Took this for a windy spin on Salisbury plain near imber. What a blast- great flow over a lot of loose stones and gravelly downhills. Steerer needs trimming and gears tuning.
