It would be cool to have a 'modern' engine, with a slim profile, in an old-timey frame. Big, wrap around bars, gigantic rear sprocket.

But, what would you do with it? Ride it in parades, maybe?

Join the Masons, you'd fit right in with the little fire engines and Cushman Eagles...

Good afternoon chaps!

For starters, my apologies if I cannot join so fully in the banter as some of the terms you use must either be of another age, unfamiliar to me, or perhaps it is an example of two countries divided by a common language... but I will try my best to keep up.
Although it is a very lovely bank-holiday weekend here, we are very busy. All the little finishing details are coming together this weekend. Bits are being chemically blacked, plated, polished, coach lined, and lacquered. It feels like we are in the final stretch much like the gigis.
At the risk of bending the rules, may I say that if you chose to visit us on the web you would see images of the Phantom EG in production. Well, needs must drive me back to the works..

Tally Ho!
Thump

This may be the first modern, production motorcycle with a "Vapour Release System" integrated into the saddle.

An integrated vapor release may not be such a ludicrous idea after all. Not to exploit my tradesman background but I have on many occasions worn the heavy duty OD green military issue coveralls, or "Mean Greens" as they were called.... In point of fact it's safe to say I fairly lived in them for a number of months at a time while Defending the Frontier of Freedom and Keeping the World Safe for Democracy aboard US Naval vessels

Owing to their weight and thickness they could be somewhat uncomfortable in the hot confines of a shipboard engineering space so we naturally being fit young men, in hotter climates wore little if anything underneath them. Given the somewhat pedestrian nature of shipboard cooking flatulence was often an issue and it was indeed dissagreable to break wind in your coveralls and have the vapors waft out around your neck, having nowhere else to vent.

Often times due to the thickness of the material the "gas pocket" would remain entrapped therein for an astonishingly long time, to the point that a fellow would have forgotten all about his little time-bomb until he took a break and upon sitting down with cigarette and coffee in hand was treated to a rather pungent reminder, owing to the bellows effect of the maneuver upon the garment.

Thus an Integrated Vapor Release Saddle would be a jolly good idea from both a health standpoint and simple common decency as the vapors take on a certain staleness over time.

And lemme tell ya, coveralls have nothing on a diver's dry suit! Especially if you were diving a rebreather! Wow!

Sitting on a stage during decompression could be a special kind of hell if you had picked the wrong thing(s) for dinner the night before.

Gosh gents, it seems flatulence is a chronic issue in your parts of the world! I suppose the prevalence of cotton or wool clothing here has spared us from the worst of your related experiences. Though I must admit that Mrs. Ramsbottom's idea regarding the company canteen offering the men "bubble and squeak" sandwiches as an economical yet energising solution to the eleven o'clock slowdown, proved to be a failure. Several minor methane explosions in the welding shop put paid to the notion, particularly when poor Titus lost a portion of his right buttock in one such incident. Poor lad.
