Hey the bike is not ugly - I have 3 FTs.
I put it on the pallet so I could tie it to something. I needed it to keep stable while I was abusing it with power tools.

It's a mater of taste, for me that front light contraption is just out of space. It's to high for starters, and that piece of plastic stuck underneath just to cover the horn and some cables is lame and plane ugly. The overall balance of the bike is distorted by very light and tall front compared to the fat and full of plastic fantastic rear.



But I like the bike for what's underneath, there's a lot of potential.

Just look at those beauties:
