Not sure If this fits the category, but here is an old buell blast I used to have.

No, it doesn't fit in this category. It's a stock bike, mass produced, and a crappy, poorly designed one, at that.

Mass produced? Yes though not anymore. Also, far from stock as pictured.

As far as being crappy and poorly designed, I'll put that in the comment box reserved for "subjective nonsense". :P


(no offense taken by the way, I am aware of the model's shortcomings)

I didn't mean to come across as rude or condescending. My apologies if I did.

I'm not sure that the Blast could *ever* be made into a cool bike. Mass produced? Yes. It was a mass produced model.

I've seen a few turned into cool coffee tables, though, by placing a sheet of glass on top of one that's been crushed into a cube.

Erik Buell himself hated that bike.

I've posted stuff from Cognito Moto before, but I think that they just keep doing better and better. They sell such cool and well thought-out stuff that it makes me want to buy some more vintage Hondas!
