Motion in NoMotion: Norcalympia Bike Show

It wasn't anything particularly special but I thought i'd share the photographs anyway.  A couple of weekends ago there was a motorcycle show and auto-jumble at the Norcalympia at the Norbreck Castle Hotel.  The highlights of the show were of course the motorcycles themselves.
This particular bike is a Suzuki GT750, the first ever water-cooled motorcycle.  However known as the "Incredible Kettle" this particular bike is a little special.  It has a one off frame, and features numerous parts from a 2008 Suzuki GSXR-1000, including all the bodywork, forks and wheels.  It made for a spectacular sight.

This is a more or less standard GT750, apart from a one off paint job featuring metal flakes which looked great under the fluorescent lighting.

Of course there were other motorcycles there including this marvellous Kawasaki Z1.
