Probably the cleanest bike I've ever seen. No controls on the bars, no visible electronics. I wonder if it runs?

I love that they hid and removed everything possible. The look is amazingly clean, and the work done to make sure the bars, engine, frame, and anything else needed all matches to keep it looking so good. With that said, it would be pure shit to ride. The single rear drum brake is enough to show that it's more about the look than anything else. Beautiful design, but nearly zero function.

Good point , that must have been day 1

I worked at a Harley / Suzuki shop during the dark days of AMF ownership of HD.

They were such piles of shit they almost went under.

One of the great turnarounds in manufacturing history

Prepare to have your mind blown. That's not a photo, it's a painting.

I love this one. Maybe a smaller headlight, but it's pretty perfect.
