even just looking: when you haven't looked in years, the stickers are enough to cause a heart murmur.
And so many of the damn things are UGLY! Lots of 'cruisers' where the designers seem to think that style means "Make it bigger and heavier and they'll love it!" And not only do lots of speed bikes and crossovers have that damned 'butt up in the air for company' seating position, but they look like a beetle. A big ugly one.
I'm still hoping I can fix both the Vulcan's problems without it costing too much; but it gets above a certain point I'm going to be stuck with "How much is it worth to fix up an 18-year old bike that's not a classic or something?"
