Maybe the equivalent of the old souped up Cortinas that used to be driven by spotty 17 year old yoofs with the music blaring when I was a nipper. If you look carefully at the black one you will see it has an interesting alternative saddle...I most definitely would not be riding pillion on that particular one!

This one was the star for me. The strange weapon shaped bit near the handlebars is the fuel tank.

You would imagine that it would have some macho name...erm no.....
