Great picture picked up from our Facebook feed of Ribeye LTD.

Interesting seats, with what looks like seat belts. Cannot say I've seen this before ? Good idea or am I mistaken. Hard to tell ?

You haven't seen it before. Tom MS (posts on here) has had it specially built for round Ireland. The seats came from Canada. Looks like a beast!

Looks like Matt H You edited as I was biting

Ok to open the question up " why not"? They have just built a superb 850s for me that knocks others I tried in design, build quality and functionality. Also take a close look at this 600 and its design.

Yes I am biased but still cannot understand the constant "ribbing" they get when so successful smilies for those that have been waiting years for me to bite.

The whole consul and seating move to absorb shock is my understanding. No A frame but Nav lights bolt onto the consul

Ian . I really like it. Tbh Ribeye do need to be lifted up a bit and too be taken more seriously than they currently do. But i think they should have privateers which would be more refreshing rather than sponsored/connected same old same old double barrelled......look at me scenario!!
Wouldn't it be more beneficial and less biased and boring to get someone like biffer or Nos with more street cred to helm it and give an honest and again non linked unbiased opinion!

i've heard a rumour or two that Ribeye has bought Revenger, or at least the moulds n rights to the name etc, shame to see Revenger go if it's true, but hopefully Ribeye will do something good with what they've got, but they aint having our Revenger, not a chance

Great unless you flip the boat? I know its rare to flip a rib but it does happen and the last place I'd want to be is strapped to the seat...
