I cannot find a price. Expect some sticker shock.

Rear suspension, disc brakes, mudguards and a propstand are standard - and because of the rear suspension, the bike can be packed down a lot. Take off the seat and wheels, and the rear swingarm will rotate 180 degrees. It’s not something you’d want to do every day, but for travel it makes it a much smaller package.

The GreenMachine starts at £2995 for the standard bike with spoked wheels, mudguards and propstand, and the tailbag is £140

D: with a x 1.5 currency conversion, that's ummm about $4500-$5000.
But what a bike!

I found it so inspiring that my Mark I custom bike will be an homage to it.

D: just need to find a scrap 20-26" wheeled SWB 'bent to scavenge for parts.
I don't imagine this will work out any cheaper than just buying a FB-GM otherwise.
(I don't have $5000 around - at least not for a bike!)
