An early model of KTM consigned to the dust bin because of ugly disease. Resurrected from the dump and re submitted to a eagerly awaiting public. Oh wait, not a KTM? You mean there is more than one ugly bike maker??

That's not funny. Not the joke; posting a Korean piece of refuse on this thread.

Sin Bin!

Benelli are usually quite gorgeous. Were'd you find that shocker?

I simply surfed bike porn sites till I found bikes as bad looking as the KTM. Posting of any bike is permitted Bo as you well know posting some really nasty, manky jobs lately, so the little Korean baby fit right in. They seem to have odd tastes also.

I ain't having no "little Korean baby" fitting in anything I own.

Was at the Barber Museum last night for the unveiling of the newest restoration. This is not the bike but it is the same model. Check out the longitudinal twin. Also was one of the earlier bikes with an internal oil pump. Oil tank was inside the gas tank. Note the side by side intake and exhaust. The thought was that super heating the intake air would make for better performance.

This is a 1919. The museum bike was a 1920. 6hp and top speed was about 50mph. I guess it would blow your hair back at that speed.

I'll remember to tread very lightly in this thread and the Craigslist one. Apparently, this forum has a very narrow, almost laser-like focus on what bikes are considered acceptable, and what ones aren't.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

I think just HAP is absolutely narrow-minded. I like most bikes and you'll find the majority of the posters feel the same way.

I only "know" HAP from this thread but I can only surmise that something occured in his youth like this...



...only it involved a Moto Guzzi?

HAP seems to have been a little pissy lately. Probably just needs a good bitch slapping.
