Sorry to say, Jackie could have done a DIY with a educational skeleton on his bike! That for sure looks bad!!
Should I add to say- The looks of a vehicle you drive tells your attitude!!

From the only pic on there, IMHO it looks quite good.

Dont look for practicality. Its art and much better then all the other stupid stuff folks add to their bikes.

Will i buy something similiar? NEVER.

Now how do these people manage the RTAs. Here we are, being warned for a simple color change deviation from the factory color, beats me.

When a man older than 50 buys a motorcycle that looks like a skeleton, he's not being a bad boy.

He simply has a mid-life crisis.

Old jungle saying.

That said, kudos to the detailed work done on the bike. It isn't easy.

Looks like the skeleton is riding the bike. And Jackie would be riding on the skeleton... Should have used a horse or cheetah skull.

Err...looked at the pic again and the position of the seat. I am hoping for Jackie's sake the skeleton is of a female.

There could have been better use of those bones in that chopper !! I would have loved the skull exactly in the place of the headlights without that stretched necky giraffy look !! maybe xenon in the place of the eyeballs

I think this bike will soon be in news again but this time after being confiscated by our RTO.

Is there any way we can register custom made vehicles?

It is good if he has his whole body tatooed and rides without a shirt.
