For all that have followed the build of the Motor bike rocker. This is the last picture of the motor bike rocker until it is completely painted. Hope you all enjoyed the build as much as I did making it.
       I started this on the 17th Feb and still 1 or 2 weeks to finish the painting
  Why did I build it
    1.  For the grandson
    2. never tried anything like this before just to see if I could
Would I do it again maybe(OK Yes)
 
Just for interest the cost of build to this stage was NO I''LL let you all guess
 
Lastly thank you all for the support

Are we talking to the nearest pound or penny for the materials Derek? Looks like another good excuse for a competition to me!

My guess is that the materials were free - recycled or scrap but the cost in blood sweat and tears is immeasurable!  Absolutely brilliant.
 
Even without paint this rocker would retail, in the right outlet, at well over £300 I reckon.
 
By the way, my comment about the Italian instructions was supposed to be a jest.  I guess that fell on stoney ground.

Mike
this did't start out as a compitition It's Bens fault he said "Looks like another good excuse for a competition to me!" so I let it go on. Still was a great idea of your to start it off
 
 
Will let you all know tomorrow evening how much

Harrods!  It would retail for over £300 but the manufacturer would only get a third of that at best I doubt.
