Guards Regiment Tribute Bike

 

Nigel was in a Guards Regiment and wanted a tribute to the regiment, with a painting from the Crimean War on either side of the petrol tank, a soldier from the period painted on top of the tank, the George Cross and the Victoria Cross and the names of Regiment soldiers who had won the medals on the side panels and images and poems on the mudguards.
