Based on the “leaper” cat logo from Jaguar Cars, Massow Concept Cycles has crafted this sleek and rideable motorcycle by designer Barend Hemmes renderings, but put together by motorcycle maker Polar Cycles.
The bike is assembled from a 1200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbird purchased off eBay and engineered in high-grade stainless steel and finished with ultra high gloss ebony lacquer and sports stingray skin seats.
Mr Hemmes said: ‘I did all the fibreglass bodywork with a sculptor and the guys from Polar Cycles did the stainless-steel frame.
The finished product was so much better than I ever expected.
It’s a labour of love.
”He added: ‘It certainly turns heads – people are fascinated by it.
They always smile.
’ This is the first of Hemmes concept drawings based on automaker trademarks to be brought to life.
The bike is priced at £320,000 (about $567,000), and the artist is in talks with Jaguar about using the bike for branding purposes.
