Rides like it, too. Can't find parts for shyt, either. Tell him to sell it for scrap and get a V65 Shadow. He'll be happier for it.

I looked a little closer at the pile of Madura when I was leaving yesterday. The dude has a bandana wrapped around each fork like the old fork gators. Except they only go around the seal area. I'm thinking his forks leak and he put the bandanas there so contain the oil.

WTF?!?!?!

And he had it repainted last year.

BUT!! He didn't have the two dents in the tank popped out. They were caused by the handlebars are full lock in either direction.

Madura. The two (yes, they were available in two sizes) ugliest motorcycles to ever disgrace the highways.

I want one just for the puke factor.

It didn't look any worse than the early Magnas. The massive king/queen seat was pretty apauling though.

You can be a real madurahead sometimes.
