Does it have the over-speed light? If so I might nominate ;)
It look like that. Red lamp in the rhino horn.
Seat look strange in the rear end, bent upwards.
Bike look really fine though!!

Wow, thanks guys, just being nominated is an honor. I accept, with much gratitude. Thanks a lot. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"
