GatorBike with Real Alligator Skin and Head


Jim Jablon a Swedish craftsman and leather expert Benny Ohrman has crafted a wild motorbike dubbed “GatorBike” from the skin and skull of a real alligator.
Made up of an influential Ultima engine to reach a top speed approx 120 mph, the custom-made bike attaches the head permanently into the handlebars to implant the speedometer and other gauges into the back of the skull, while the skin can be removed after the ride. To raise funds for a wildlife charity, the £51,000 alligator bike will be auctioned in May in Fort Lauderdale.
