This idea has been running through my mind for a long LONG time now and I finally found pics to show my idea. I just dont want the pointed nose but I think it will look mean and NO taxis will give me any problems... :twisted:

Looks mean, but me thinks that's all. Think of it this way: suppose you ding the right rear corner. Instead of having damage on the right rear corner only, that cage will bend and touch the body in other places too. = damage x 10...?
In order for that cage to be strong enough to prevent that it has to be VERY well engineered and might end up being very heavy.
But it does look mean! Methinks it is more of a gatjeuk than practical thing. Sometimes the scratching of such an itch can be very satisfying. ;)
I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.
