Owner: Gareth Jones, 29, Cardiff
Why this bike? Originally I bought this bike as a commuter for work and I promised myself I was not going to touch it. That went out the window straight away.
Modifications: I’ve changed the forks, discs, added a custom headlight from a Gilera Runner moped, and an exhaust from a 2007 Yamaha R6.
The seat unit is fibre glass and it has a custom paint job.
Favourite thing: It has to be the paint job and the noise it makes – it certainly seems to grab everyone’s attention.
The competition: More than 450 bikes were entered in to the 2009 Britain’s Got Biking Talent with Carole Nash contest.
The final 12 bikes, which are featured in Carole Nash’s 2010 calendar and are on show at the Britain’s got biking talent stand at the NEC Bike Show (location 2B15) this week, were chosen by MCN readers.
A JPS Norton NRS500 replica was chosen as winner of the competition.
For your free calendar featuring all 12 finalists visit the Carole Nash stand (location 2C20) at the NEC Show.
If you can’t make it to the show, but would still like a calendar log on to http://www.carolenash.com/biketalent_cal.asp to order one at a small cost.
