Calling it a desert sled does not make it so. If it is so can I call my Brick a GP bike. :hehehe I'd love to see him actually race it. :falldown:

But Martin, it has off-road tires...

I wonder if they cut off the rear frame loop.  Can't have that on a real custom.

Ah Haaa so Gryph the bikes designation is by what tyres you put on. So if I put a knobby on the rear and a racing slick on the front, will that make it a GP Crosser.
Regards an enlightened Martin.

Linked below the tatt artist's bike was the bike of my dreams back when I was an irresponsible youth.

I wonder if that was why I was so drawn to my yellow K75.
