Personally... I don't like it. That says NOTHING about the quality of workmanship, however. The rear fender looks wonky, not sure if the shape really fits with the rest of the bike. Also, I personally don't like the "stretched" look as I think it screws up the visual proportions of the bike. I think, however, that the "stretched" look is more due to the aforementioned wonky rear fender than the swingarm.

In retrospect, I think I find utilitarian design more attractive anyway. That might be why I don't particularly show bikes in general, because I can't imagine spending that much time, money, and effort on a bike that is too uncomfortable to ride more than a few blocks down the road.
