Can't stop the Cretins from rocking...





To promote their new full-face helmet, US bike clothing company Icon have made an ad that shows the lid, the excellently named Speed Cretin, in action on a wall of death. I don't think the full video is out yet, but Hell for Leather have a taster. That's where we got these photos.
Icon commissioned this mutant Yam TT500 to co-star in the ad. It's part-flat tracker, part-supermoto, part-Bososoku bike. The whole concept certainly beats some 'model' with two-day stubble giving it the blue steel that most bike clothing companies use.
This paint reminds me a lot like Bellodonna's SR, that features in their advert in SB3. GI

That's so ugly, and yet so wonderful! Now I want one of those too.

Keep this coming. Sideblog remains firmly at the top of my bookmarks list.

That is a 100% paint scheme rip off! Their (icon) creativity must have been low that day... But on the other hand it shows that Sideburn affects people! :-)

Any date set for the arrival of SB#4?

Cheers, Marcus

Being pro choice I think it would've been better to terminate this one.

swap out the bars and three spokes, and ditch the sissy bar and i would be all over it!
