New street scrambler from Spirit of the Seventies

No matter which angle you view this latest build by Kent-based Spirit of the Seventies, the aesthetics stop you in your tracks. But that’s only to be expected when you have two arty types, Tim Rogers and Kevin Taggart, steering the company - one a professional photographic, the other a graphics designer, and both sharing a deep passion for building...

missed the target

I can see what they are trying to do but the proportions of the bonnie frame don't suit this stripped down look. They would need to get hold of an American flat-track frame (the yanks race new bonnies and build frames for the job)to get it looking right which would make it very expensive. Should have used Kawasaki's W650/800 which is what most of the European originators of this look use. The trouble with custom building is 'Almost right' won't do.

To be totally authentic it needs a ripped bin-liner for the seat.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, good or bad, thats why we have columns like this. It also helps manufacturers gauge opinion on their products. Would you like  to be in a business where you only heard a few good comments and hardly anyone bought your product and then turn round and say 'but no-one told me it was crap and now I'm bankrupt'?

Some small, custom-made side covers and a rounder rear tail would make this bike awesome, I'd sure enjoy riding one! Sure you can have a 200HP sports bike and that can be fun too, but these bikes are about style and character not spec sheets. You appreciate it or you don't. Personnaly I like pretty much all bikes (as long as they are not made by H-D)

Commented added on behalf of fasttourer

I have been an MCN Reader since the early 60's and have seen many comings and goings of all kinds of bikes but this is the first time I have written to MCN.

Having seen the pictures of the Spirit Street Scrambler I can only say its the most ugliest bike I have seen for some time.

The guy who gets this machine must be a relation of Stevie Wonder, they have totally ruined a really nice bike.

I'm sorry if it upsets anyone but thats the truth of the matter.1 word to describe this bike is UGLY.
