Modern bike with Vintage styling?

Have you seen any of these yet? Given the Bobber and Steam-punk influence, I'm not really surprised.

  Hi,GB. Followed your link..... The Gentleman's lounge is not what you expect.  I mistook Malfa for Mafia and the Black Douglas is "Powered By Viral Octopus". Another Engineering Innovation, runs on salt water.    So, good luck to them, but I have my doubts.

No thanks. At over $20,000 AU plus freight/taxes/rego for a 230cc. That would get me two A10BVSR's or a brand new 200HP R1 with all the kit.
Good luck to them.
Cheers

There were several of these in the Chicago DGR. Most were for promotion, as they are built one state over, in Indiana.
