Ok so, the staff at GBHQ are sitting around on a lazy friday afternoon surfing the web and trying to figure out how to kill the last three hours of a crazy working week, when all of a sudden out of the corner of an eye, someone spots this little puppy!

Sitting there in our google search all stealth, sleek and seriously cool a little piece of makers magic comes our way. And yes, before you email us telling us that the wheels aren't race specification and the ride position is all whack, just take another sip of your vodka martini, settle back into your high back leather bound chesterfield and take a closer look at some of the thinking that has been included into each aspect of this custom beauty.

Monocoque rear end. Single - custom bladed - front fork assembly, interesting and elegant frame design and some seriously slim line custom bars. Not crazy paint job to ruin the lines and cover the welds, no steering dampener in sight and no added bling to distract us from what this bike is about. This thing just screams "get on and have some fun" and we can imagine the warm summer nights when we would have taken this out for a 2am blast with no protective gear, in singlet and shorts,   with a few mates and a couple of beers in tow. GBHQ is currently making some enquiries to find out who the owner is of this two wheeled bundle of joy  is so we can ask him/her a few questions and bring you another interview. Stay tuned and in the meantime, check out Tracko/GSC's flickr account here! From all those of us who appreciate some original thinking, we salute you!
