All bike designers should be forced to clean & maintain all bikes they design......preferably in the spring after a full winter's riding.
Be careful what you wish for. That is how we ended with bikes like the Honda Pacific Coast.

Although....... I know it's wrong but I'm finding myself strangely drawn to that bike (I've never seen one before), I think I might need to begin the self isolation sooner than I expected  :003:

Everything under the plastic is butt ugly, including the exhaust system, which is actually just raw steel (usually rusty) with a chrome piece on the outside for show.
