But I love it ! I'm a big fan of what we used to call "sleepers". Ya know the cars that looked like a businessman's sedan with a pro-stock motor hidden underneath the hood. Same with bikes. Retro-cruiser looking R1 or a SV650 that looks like a 305 Dream .... hmmm
I'm anti-fridge ..

I can appreciate that sentiment, but I tend to side with those who have the guts to put the torch to 'em.

No you ain't weird. The first gen GSXR's are iconic, they deffined what s Sportbike could be and are pretty comfy to boot.

That Beemer is the worst "custom" eva!

Seriously - what the !#$% is that? I've seen plenty of modded bikes that I don't care for, but this one actually makes me ill!

Thank goodness BKK Jack posted a VTR to calm me down...

And Syscrush - Some bikes, like the FZR, are just too good to mess with. He should get a SV if he wants something to mod into a "Streetfighter".

I know what I'll is, I was attempting a funny. Must have been too dry. I have to say it is a very unique custom, and in that vein I like it, the owner builder made it his and that is the definition of a custom. The doner bike was not the pick of the liter in the looks department.

By that same logic, it's a sin to race one.
