Jaguar bike goes on sale for £290,000

Homemade special given sky-high price tag by ambitious owner

A £290,000 price tag. Is he having a laugh?

GOT £290,000 to chuck away? Well if you fancy owning a one-off Jaguar motorbike built by Lee J. Rowland then get your chequebook ready.

Complete with its own 'CAT 1' number plate the cat-shaped fibreglass motorcycle is powered by a 1200cc Buell 97 S3 Thunderbolt engine. Or you could own a Ducati Desmosedici, a Confederate Hellcat and still have £150,000 in your high-interest account. But who wants that when you can look like you're bumming a big cat as you head down some twisty country lanes?

Worth every penny, we reckon.
