When you always wanted a chopper but only had street bike to work with.

Ha ha, what a moron! ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I wonder if that changes the handling characteristics of the bike?

You gotta understand Honda does not get it and this "designer" knows better.

It can be yours for only $9,500.

I'd have that , lighter than stock, no uglier than stock and probably faster too

I look upon the factory appearance to be the starting place for something better, even the zzr I'm doing at the moment will be apparently stock but I have to at least change the graphics to a different colour
Every bike/scooter I've owned has been "improved" upon in some way, even if it was just a spray can paint job or a set of handlebars

Admittedly the price seems a bit steep on the cbx
It seems I've kicked the Honda habit again...anyone mind if I stick around ?

Well I'd love to have a stock red 1979 CBX, because I remember how amazing they looked when they were new, but I don't mind that thing, I especially like the exhaust. I'd still rather have the stocker though. ;D

Consider if you will the custom chopper craze of a few years back with people plunking down 30,000 to 50,000 for a custom bike. Fad faded and bottom dropped out of the market on those bikes. Lots of repo'd bikes when economy tanked and people could not sell them for 1/4 of purchase price when they needed to get out from under them.

That monstrosity would have a short shelf-life as well if there are many who would like it.
