What is the ugliest bike you ever owned?

Post by hayweed on Wed May 19, 2010 2:40 pm

I think the ugliest bike I have ever owned was a 1982 Yamaha Seca 650 Turbo.

haha, wrong man, wrong.

1999 Suzuki Bandit 1200.
I had bought it and it was missing the half fairing.
They had turned it into some kind of abomination street fighter.

I dropped about 200 bucks to have the wiring redone because they had wired two headlights which drew too much current and burned up the wiring.
It was "British Racing Green" I remember that because I had to order touch up paint.

After putting about 700 dollars it looked halfway decent... for a street fighter... and ran like a scalded dog.

Ended up selling the bike to my stepson for a pretty reasonable price.
I'll get pictures of her when I can.

The pic is from an online service. Mine was missing the lower fairing. It was stolen twice and wrecked both times. Dont ask how I got it back twice. I never thought mobile pd would find it in the first place. lol!

I think it was a 1980 Yamaha 650 twin. Full rat bike complete with baling wire and duct tape.

Yeah. That fighter didn't turn out half-bad in the end!
My ugliest bike to date has got to be my old 1996 Suzuki Katana. I bought it in a package deal with my cb750. The title on it had the owner listed as the Arkansas Drug Task Force. The fairings on it were totaled and I removed them... but that bike was just fugly. It crapped the bed and I sold it off for parts!
I think I have a pic of it somewhere...

Here she was! This was the pic from the Craigslist ad that I sold her with. That's exactly how I rode her. Gross!
