Sadly none of the many entries in last week’s exiting Name that Bike competition managed to hit the nail on the head. Not for want of trying, mind (see below), but our those metaphorical cigars will be staying in their metaphorical humidor for now.

In view of this regrettable circumstance, we now find ourselves obliged to release a second partial photographic likeness of our mystery bike – and to warn readers that further clues will continue to appear in this slot until such time as a correct answer and/or £345.00 in used fivers is received by this office.

For the avoidance of further error, here are some of this week’s WRONG answers.

  • Peter Sandleigh wrote in suggesting that the machine pictured is an MBK Doodo, which was WRONG, so don’t-don’t anyone write in with that suggestion again please.
  • Danni Amari-Osman, also needs to guess again. Seriously, Danni? Surely any idiot can see the pictured bike is not a Hodaka Combat Wombat.
  • Captain Andy Neil sent us an email from the Princess Sultana airbase where he is currently serving on secondment to the Royal Saudi Air Force, suggesting that the bike shown is the legendary Hardurokan Seaburglar, which it clearly isn’t. Because the Hardurokan Seaburglar is just a legend and not a real motorcycle, which, you will notice, the one pictured clearly is.
  • Is it “some kind of monkey bike” wondered Pete Chissenharp. No it most certainly isn’t! Can you imagine Bankstone’s glorious leader Desmond Torso riding around on one of those!

If you think you can do better than that sorry shower, send your CORRECT answer to editor@bankstone-news.co.uk



What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
