Fantasy Steam Punky Bike Thing?

So recently I was going through and having a look through some of my old fantasy minis. I was just seeing what I got, where I can possibly make space to put all the new shiny things I want to get for other projects, the typical stuff we wargamers get up to when where not playing or painting when I came across this monstrosity I must have made some five or so years ago.
 

First thought was “what the f*@k is that?” followed by “what the f*@k was I thinking?”


Back when I made this, all I ever played were fantasy games, mainly DnD or Warhammer. I remember having a part assembled space marine bike in my bits box that my brother had bought years ago (I don’t know why as we never ever collected or played 40k) and I suppose I thought “what can I do with this?”, which I can only assume resulted in an idiotic idea to make it more “fantasy” looking!

Even though the paint job is very rough compared to what I strive for today, and the fact the model has never seen the light of day since I made it, it’s unique and quite odd, and that’s why I thought I’d take some pics (embarrassing as it is) and share it with you guys.
