The Green Thing
This is the bike that started it for me, I had wanted a Panther since I was 17 but never got around to it. This was featured in that great old mag Awol (vol6 no 11 and still available from the magazineman) and it really lit the fire under my arse to get a Panther. Built in true shed fashion with whatever was handy at the time.
Sadly Mark Sheeran the owner/builder has recently passed away and the bike has gone into the care of Grahame Sherborne who sent me these pictures.
I've got to say without this bike I don't think Bobcat would have been built, it just has that something about it...
Thanks for the inspiration Mark, RIP Shaun & Bobcat.
