I know! It's funny, right? But look at it this way- it's only a proper set of bars and cables away from being a very nice road-going Fastback. Think of it as a hybrid FB/Hi-Rider sort of Commando. In the meanwhile if it means the owner enjoys riding this bike and he puts miles on it, it's all good. At least it didn't get "hacked" into some hipster inspired chopper bobber steam-punk thing of horror that can never be brought back. That's when I generally break out the WTF.

Cheers.

Agreed. An otherwise great looking bike compromised by a ridiculous but easily changed accessory!
