Default Too much free time: Jaguar Leaper Bike. Rawr.




T3 EXCLUSIVE! Pictures of the first ever Jaguar Motorcycle.

We've snaffled exclusive pics of a motorcycle made out of the Jaguar logo.

Some people have too much time on their hands. We salute those people. Especially this avid motorcycle enthusiast who fashioned a motorbike in the image of the classic Jaguar logo.

This beautiful two-wheeled tribute to the legendary car-makers was created by a heroic Jag-fan from the comfort of his own garage.

Details are scant at the moment, but hopefully Jaguar will realise the old feline was pretty bored sitting on the front of bonnets and give her a new lease of life!

We're sure the engine has a great purr, but you'll need cat-like reflexes to handle its awesome.

We're speeding off in search of more details of the greatest classic-car-meets-motorbike invention in the history of the world.

It needs headlights for the eyes, and the tail can be the exhaust pipe.

Interesting styling excercise. Looks intimidating for tight corners.

^Yeah, I agree. It doesn't even look like it can be easily ridden.

The Spirit of Ecstasy's name certainly suggests that she might be a good ride, but maybe not great for a motorcycle/marque emblem. Although her position might make her interesting while standing on the edge of a cliff.

i mean seriously... what were they thinking when they designed it. it wouldn't have mattered how they put the seating position, it would look weird anyway
