    wow. weird.


    still, the FS bike is simply a motocross bike without the petroleum-based engine.

    with all thus response to extreme terrain, it seems that an FS is just a comfort bike on steroids...(just joshing you).

    one day i'll salivate for one of these. but they really are ugly

    That must have been some export model XTS Moto. Every XTS Moto I've known of, in their 4-year production run from 2003 - 2006 were the familiar plumber's nightmare faux-bars that Ed spoke of:

    Yep, just looks like a U.K. model. Basic single pivot Bullit clone.

    Looks decent, but nothing special. A bit overpriced for what you'd be getting there, IMO. The single crown XTS looks like a fun bike. So does building up the Sabbath frame kit.

    Ouch! That is spendy for what it is. Being a Bullit-clone, it at least it stands a chance of being more capable of what it's intended for than the original Moto.
