I don't like motorcycles, but I would buy one with those on it..  Hell, I'd mount them on the wall without the bike just to spin them and watch the beauty...

I had to look twice, because I wasn't paying proper attention the first time.

First impression: Big deal decorated rims
Proper look: OMFG! Where do I sign in blood? Where's the basket for my first born to be carted away?

so now that we've collected our jaws from the floor, has anyone bothered to aethermail this gentleman to see how much he charges for these lovely wheels? 

could you imagine a pennyfarthing with them?! *though I can't imagine the price for that large front wheel...*

oh my god your right...

I believe the words you are looking for is "ByJ you're right!"

if I had more spare cash and considered myself seriously in the market for these I'd just find out how much they are.

I think I went into shock for a few minutes.....
 Now that I sufficiently recovered from the gloriousness what is a pennyfarthing....I know its a unit of correct but the context doesn't seem to suggest such.

A pennyfarthing is that classic bicycle of the 19th century with one very large wheel in front, and one tiny wheel in back.

I found these and showed Datamancer- It's entirely possible that I'll be building a motorcycle around these. All brass and dark wood, at least the parts I can get away with. Structural parts I'll have to deal with brass-plating or making look like wrought-iron.

It's going to be great.

Alex is good people.
When you've got a rim like this, anything built around it can't help but be cool.
Steampunk unicycle, anyone?
