Gator-Chopper made from real 'gator - could be yours? Answered

Commissioned by the owner of the Wildlife Rehabilitation of Hernando (WROH) in Florida, Jim Jablon, Swedish craftsman and leather expert Benny Ohrman has crafted a wild motorbike dubbed “GatorBike” from the skin and skull of a real alligator



Top speed 120mph.
(one of many sources) and one of several bikes like this - but it seems this one is being raffled.

I would just nail an alligator to the top of my motorcycle, but that's cool, too!

It needs mechanically openning and closing jaws. That should keep thieves away. I've got to admit that is a brilliant mod, I wonder how long he spent on it?

Does the monkey cost extra?


P.S. How'd you get two images in?

I don't think the Lemur is part of the deal, and it's probably not available as an extra either.

When I grow up I'm working in a zoo to steal a lemur and leave the country, to live my wonderful life with Lemur Larry.

In Texas, they hang coyotes on the fence to deter any more from attacking their calves.......let other gaters be warned; no more eating motorcycles!

You could probably wedge a six-pack between the jaws?

Am I the only one to think it peculiar that the owner of a wildlife rehabilitation centre would turn said wildlife into a piece of mechanical frippery?

It is a cool bike, though...

.  I'm guessing that the creature died of natural causes. I definitely hope so.

I understand it was a culled / farmed beastie.
