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
Subbed. I love Bergerac.
Hope this is going to involve some nods to the great series. Maybe some custom decals?
I’ll put a nod to the island on it somewhere:
One of these will do nicely :
yes needs a sturdy rack so you can give Phillipa Vale a lift as you ride off with her and a bag of diamonds :)
For the low rider panniers:
Love those splatter paint cindercones. Always lusted after one
Finally got round to drawing a picture
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.
Hobby or your profession?
Bike looks good.
Ah thanks, not a job unfortunately just do a few doodles here and there. Might do some greetings cards..
Bike’ll be done soon -restrap bag arrived - rack on back order. Steerer needs cutting and gears dialing in. Will take some pictures .
Stickers arrived, not sure which to use
First one. Definitely.
Is a cassette welded to a crank aicmfp
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.
