'so yes please, send it away. '

Whatever happened to: 'Give me your tired, your poor, etc. etc...??'

After every choice of element, color, configuration, and combined overall effect, it's as if the fabricator stepped back and thought, "It doesn't look stupid enough,... What else can I do to make this bike the least appealing bike ever made?" I've never heard a good explanation of why anyone would mount those ridiculous handlebars except, "I think they look cool!"... but they don't.

And the bizzare thing is there will be some guys who will just think this bike is beautiful...

The bike is in the USA. FREE shipping to England, so yes please, send it away.
It should definitely not come back to the UK, the previous owner/ builder was a very good salesman to sell it across the pond must have been able to sell snow to the Eskimos. :)

This blasphemy on two wheels may be compelling evidence for keeping the death penalty...;);)

In the mid 90's, for 7 years, I was a field service engineer. I traveled the US and on a rare occasion to Canada to support repair and do training on our companies industrial instruments. This required a lot of flying in steerage (coach) class.
I once flew to Baton Rouge to a chemical plant, and had a "middle seat". Sitting scrunched up, due to broad shoulders, in the middle instead of my usual aisle seat, I must have stressed by neck and back muscles. I ended up in the emergency room in a BR hospital at 2AM. diagnosis pinched nerve, right shoulder/arm. Took well over a year to heal
For the next year and a half I could not ride my commando with conventional bars, or any of my other bikes like Ducati 907IE.
My combat was converted into HiRider dress for that period and the bars in reality are lower than many harley that go by my house even today.
Without that there would have been NO bike riding...True the seat sucks
I eventually left that job mainly I hated to travel, and no compensation for time away from home.
