Who knew Rokon was forty years ahead of their time?
For the cost to build one of these, I find them kind of silly. It's kind of like they have an idea then get bored part way through and just take the simple route just to get it done. I find them just a little disappointing.
Here's two of my projects for your amusement:
Street Tracker - Scrambler
And this is a project, but not a bike, it is for building a bike:
Bike Build Table
BikeExif seems to have improved in their choices, I had to go back 3 pages to find one that jumped out at me as truly ugly...
Who would want to pay big money for this?
The builder is looking for those with money who want to see themselves as individuals who go their own way.... Just like he does.
I wonder if he will pay for the buyer to get a cool dude hairstyle and matching ink?
Just like all the HD sales strategy over the years, tell the doctors, lawyers, and accountants that if they ride a Harley, they will be a "Lone Wolf".
It is terribly funny to see the backs of all these fenderless bike riders when it gets wet.
Nothing shows how badazz you are like brown skid mark stripes all the way up your back.
Time for an amateur (Home Hacker) build, this one isn't terrible, but.... why?
No permanent damage done so it is fixable and could be built as a cafe' racer, or a scrambler, or a street fighter, but right now it is... confused.
It's for sale too! HERE
Another from The Bike Shed, but this one is PRO built.
They say it is sure to become a collector piece as an early build by an award winning custom bike builder.
It has the "Custom" bike requisite Flintstone tires and a welded up hard tail frame (chopped stock frame) and.... a BESPOKE wiring harness. Wow!
And the adverts says: "The bike runs, rides and stops. No MOT & currently SORN. Tyres have ZERO miles on them."
The price is only $2,770.
For a 1980 250.
I'd ride post#3; post#14 isn't "finished", and the cyclops is stupid, but a good start?
Can we make it a requirement that posters need to include the asking price?
That helps add to the humor :)
I couldn't care less that clowns chop away at modern bikes, but FFS, if a bike has survived 40 odd years intact, then hackers should just piss off and leave it be....
So many classics being bodged and cut to pieces in a vain attempt to 'improve' makes me wanna scream.
How about instead of a requirement, a request if the price is known.
It does often add to the idiocy...
I added this to the first post:
EDIT: If the bike is for sale, post the asking price, it adds to the amazement.
And, if you agree the bike pictured belongs in this thread, hit the "LIKE" button.
That doesn't mean you like the bike, just that you also think it a stupid ugly bike.
I think any bike with clip-ons and knobby tires fits in the stupid category
1980 BMW 800cc
For sale $11,600
The good thing is it won't take much to make it a nice bike.
One with more than 1.5" of suspension, 4" ground clearance, goofy ergo's, and no rear fender (front fender must be required by law there).
MY first thought was...damn, I actually sort of like that bike. Until I saw the price!!!!! (See, this new recommendation is totally paying off)
This one is simple, just remove what you can and spray the rest with rattlecan flat black
A Yamaha SR250 for only $4,770.
The pro's often have dramatic photo shoots...
Yours for under $10,000! ($9,667)
A 125 clone clown for the rider who like riding a bike that looks like its back is broken.
For the record, all my likes were agreements that the illustrated bikes do, actually, suck big time including the Airhead ( "Be still my little heart." Grover from Sesame St).
Master craftsman. Tattoos are a dead giveaway.
Wait. You mean you are actually supposed to try to ride these bikes?
I think there may be interest in a picture thread for "The Motorcycle as Art" for custom bikes that are beautifully designed and built, but are not meant to actually ride.
(this thread is for custom bikes that supposedly are built to ride)
Art pieces like this:
Beautiful mechanical art that would look great on display in a bike theme restaurant.
Whatcha think? Would you like to see motorcycle art?
Not if it requires the bike to not have a real seat.
The seats on those art bikes aren't much worse than what is often on the bikes that fit this Stupid Ugly thread.
Actually, the seats on many factory bikes aren't much better...
Ridden an mx bike lately?
I think the "seat" on them is just like the "seat" on a trials bike, they are a decorative frame cover, not meant for actually sitting on.
