I can't comment on whether it actually broke legs. It does look hideously dangerous to me, though.

In my quest to find the perfect two wheel transportation for myself, I did consider the Ascot VT500.

Im sure it would be fun to ride, but I was concerned that it wouldn't have enough power for my purposes.

I've been riding around with that 80's boxy styling on my current bike for 10 years. I guess I'm used to it.

I almost got this one, instead.

I'm sure nothing like this ever came out of British design studios....

I worked on one of these for awhile and got to ride a fair amount. Smooth powerful, dead reliable. Not real pretty.....
