Oh come on, you have to let a commercial company put those out. They are just so good.

It ain't going to happen, sorry.

They are an incredibly niche vanity project produced simply because I wanted them and no company in their right minds would ever commission them.

That being said, it's not a case of 'they're my toys and nobody else can play with them'; if fellow LAFfers absolutely need a Mexican bandit on a scooter on their gaming tables I'm happy to help once I've got what I need.

Cancun, Mexico’s answer to Brighton?

I suppose this answers the age old question: ‘What would a Mexican Phil Daniels look like?’ :D

By the by I think you might be wrong about commercial manufacturers unwillingness to cast and sell these. Lovely stuff.

I keep looking at them and trying to work out how to make a lights and mirrors rig.... don't think it could be castable so very labour intensive for more than one

Perhaps - but it isn't going to happen. The economics of moulding and casting (they're not 'light' in terms of metal weight) means that a 'retail' price would be silly in order for someone to make a reasonable profit. As long as I'm able to cover my costs I'm not bothered by that so when I've got spares I'm happy to see them go to loving homes. Making a few bob wasn't the WHY I had them done.

By the by, I just noticed that the right handlebar on the green one seems to have gotten bent?

It has.... and I've just managed to break it trying to straighten it  >:(  ::) Hey ho, easy fix with some CA.

It was the 1st one I built and didn't quite get the position right to start off with. Learning experience.
