Did any of you ever think that maybe a young boy bought the bike that was totaled and rebuilt it as cheap as he could afford?
I kinda see my self, if i was 18 now, to make a bike just like that! I see nothing wrong with that! Not everybody can afford a
brand new BMW. And more over, is probably cleaner than your $20K+ bike!

Ok, now you all just shoot me, but that is just the way i see it, and thought is worth mentioning it here! :kacsint2:

Yes, and it is still pig ugly. it is not the quality of the product we are making observations on, it is the form it takes. So given the same amount of money you still have choices about the shapes generated.
However, someone likes it, and I guess that's what matters.
Did it sell?

The ad says, "Only one in the world"
I say, "Thank goodness for that".

It's a bit like an ugly bird, you'd ride it if you had to, you wouldn't want to marry it though. 👍

it isn't any worse looking that a R1200GS, which looks like an explosion in a pipework factory
