It's not too ugly. It has a naked charm.

 :)) :)) :)) :)) :)) :))
only thing '92-'93 about that bike seems to be the side panels and tail plastics...
wheels, brakes, front end, etc are all post 94...

but hey, cut the Bro some slack... remove the kegg'r, and the cat-o-9's, and the bags... and the fairing... and....
well, consider the source man, he's living in an aluminum box. that has "under-skirting"..

but he DID replace the "star SPRING"...  :)) :)) :)) :))

with what? who knows...? :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

It's like a Katana and a Seca had a baby.  A real ugly baby.
If you can't fix it, at least break it trying.

So the owner didn't like the weather protection, or the roomy luggage, or the performance.   :??:

Ya'll are pathetic - trashing that fella's bike like that. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, and this may have been his pride and joy.

Since it's such a mess aesthetically, I wonder how good it can be mechanically? In my experience they usually go hand in hand.

It sorta reminds me of cars I see on the road with weird paint jobs, fancy blingy wheels and other odd attachments that are meant to make it more "attractive" but the engine smokes and knocks like it has bad rings and a spun rod bearing.

I agree with connieklr.  This is bad form and needs to stop.

Considering the fact that he's only asking $800 (and another $100 for the new saddlebags) I don't see why there's any reason to dump on him.
Smart people look like crazy people to stupid people.

  Maybe it's the other way around... your bike has a fugly owner  :pokestick:

  I guess that's OK to say, at least I'm not making fun of anyone's bike  :nananana: :rotflmao: ;)

  I started this just to have some light hearted fun. No mean spirit intended.
  Your right this may have been his pride and joy. Everyone has a "look" they are going for  i guess.
  Sorry if I offended anyone .
