This is a model I kit-bashed about 90% out of Tamiya bike parts and 10% scratch built. The design was inspired by the new Youtube film, called Leviathan. Do a search on Youtube and you will see the model that inspired my version.

Love this, Tiking! Do you remember what Tamiya bike kit formed the bulk of this build? Something like this would be perfect for a dio I'm working On. Great job!

That's some amazing work. If you didn't mention it I would have thought at least half was scratch built. This is why I keep all my spare parts in a bin in case I ever get inspired by something I saw or it just hits me out of the blue. Great work!

Thanks for looking in. I appreciate it. The bulk of the model is the Tamiya, Bimota Tesi Kit.

Thank you. I have so many spare parts dated from 2003, when I started. They do definately come in handy.
