Rare Buell heads Buxton auction

Wow thats an ugly bike! I'm sure though that aerodynamics on it are great...he was probably just focusing too much on function over form....

Worse than ugly...

That Buell looks hideous enough from the outside, but the full horror is hinted at on the fairing...

Butt ugly on the surface, useless pile of crap underneath.

I'll start the bidding at 50p.

Yikes!

I used to have a Buell and natter on the Buell UK forum and many of the fanboys love this - its their dream bike!! I for one find it utterly hideous. I know it might be from a moment in history, but I suspect that even back in the day it would have been one extra special dose of ugly.

Ugly?

well it's no worse than the recent fireblade or VFR1200. And being a Buell it would most likely still out handle many a modern day Asian bike.

The Buell is not really something that would make me go to an auction. I've seen bikes that made me want to quit my wife and run with them to Mexico, but this doesn't even make me want to go to the store. These guys might make a partnership with Airstream RV, if they continue to make suck large vehicles.
