I was just curious on the price. A Blast, with a few things removed and painted that color would be sweet. That's a very Buell-like color. I'd never own the chopper he created. I wanted to know if he...

Where? How much for that one? I'm curious. Minus what they did to the neck, I'd own that bike. Love the color. It's still a Blast.
