Looks Ghetto? Make it a set?
I'm sorry but that poor bike looks like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. These designers do the same thing to Harley touring bikes.

Hardly a factory goldwing
”the special motorcycle was created by Kevin Dunn, Duy Nguyen, Jimmy Chen and Ray Tong, of Southern California’s Steady Garage."

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

So, someone who knows nothing about motorcycling thought this would look cool?

Seems like every mod they made reduces functionality.

Yesterday at Wal-Mart I saw a kid (early 20s) with a near stock (had floorboards) '81 Aspy. Very clean and well cared for. And much more attractive than this custom.

And voids the warranty. The 'Big Wheel' look has been around for over 5 years and so it's not new. I guess these goof balls are trying to make a name for themselves. Honda may have done better if they asked Arlen Ness to create a custom Goldwing.
It started with the HD crowd.

A Dragster?

It looks like a dressed up Dragster with out the wheelie bars and with no where to go.


You've heard of Ugly, meet Fugly.

If I wanted to ride with ape hangers I wouldn't ride a Goldwing. I like the color, but they just ruined a nice wing.

Being an ex-lobsterman, I like this one better, but I understand if you guys like it butter.
