Two 59 Club bikes featured in an anti cafe racer video???
<DIV>Obviously these people have been smoking something, anyone who thinks a BMW in full plastic fairing is something beautiful has lost the plot.</DIV>
<DIV>Granted the American burger bike and the canadian animal horn thing have a bit to be desired, but all I saw was great customising into cafe racers, and a lot of ugly bits taken off.</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>Nice one Bec!</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>Cheers </DIV>

<br>I thought they were smoking something also! Now, as you say about the BMW, you can see why I don\'t like automatic or Asian Vespas and Lambrettas. It\'s NOT the same! Sure, we can all move with the times and it\'s cheaper to buy the Asian, but I know a lot of people who\'ve had grief with them.<br><br>I was dumbfounded by the name of the company also. Ichiban? That\'s Japanese last time I heard. Did they forget the bombing of Pearl Harbour with a name like that? That\'s like the Japanese naming a weapons franchise Enola Gay, located exclusively to Hiroshima and Nagasaki only.<br><br>I think the video was a litlte tongue-in-cheek, suggesting that patina, \'chopping\' them up etc. is not good for any motorbike. Having said that, my mate Rolf has a lot of patina on his 1959 Vespa. It is something of an acquired taste.<br><br>
