I am into Bobbers but they really fouled the exhaust. The artificial scuffing is uncalled for also. I can see a soft tail version of a Thunderbird though. Oh, look! They put a testicle remover on the tank. Not nice!

Exceedingly cool and original. Imagine riding around your town on that thing!

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Like the lines but the "Recovered from a Burned Out Garage Look" don't work for me. Of course if it showed up in my drive needing a home.......I'd get used to it.

Gotta agree on the "worn" guitars ! I've played for years and none of mine look as "worn" as the Fender antique looking ones ---- but------except for the paint on the cycle it does look "nostalgic" and I sorta like it ! Nix, on the jewel kicking ! !

Yeah, the whole worn look is a bit silly. I definitely agree on the worn-looking line of Fender guitars--ridiculous.

Anyone notice the mid-mount controls?

I would love to get a set of those fenders for my SE. That would make a nice looking bike.

In "real life" - ie., the bike show - I thought the pipes looked hideous.

It needs fork gaiters and a better looking black exhaust.

Not only does it look like a bike from the 50's, it looks like a bike you would have found in the clunkers yard out the back.
Nothing to like about it IMHO.

It should be reported to the Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Motorcycles; they should seize it and try to nurse it back to some semblance of "normal". A nice coat of glossy blue and white paint would be a start.
