Rip the motor out of a mechanical buckaroo and replace it with a Triumph Bonneville T140Ve 750cc engine.

Charge it up by wrist wrenching the throttle attached to the right bull's horn, pull in the clutch on the left horn and proceed to gear change with the stirrups.

With a Top speed of 111mph (with wheels) and @ 7,000rpm, it'll surely be one hell of a ride for Granny at sixpence a BuckerUmph.

       So is it still bucking, or only when you go over potholes?

       Love the trumpets, a distinctive sound, although your bull is going to leak oil.

       Why?

       Because Granny needs a bit of "umph" in her life.
