I have a soft spot for neon bikes and crazy fades, but happily you don't have to dress like David Icke on acid to ride them

This BULA stuff just looks so awful and it isn't just the colours - bad bad bad bad

Definitely not cool

Have got a tasteful blue Hawaiian shirt type print Russian winter hat made by Bula. Still cool. Will post pic tomorrow. All other Bula stuff posted so far is garish. My Bula hat is quite nice.

BITD it was cool. Probably wouldn't be cool now though... aye there's the rub

But having seen what they evolved into (Bula 2011), not that I'm trying to influence anybodies vote...

THE HAT! :roll:


I'm sorry, I just can't see a hat :? ..


For me Bula represents a certain era so well that it's definitely cool ;) .

:lol: David Icke on acid is never a cool look :lol:

Uncool. Some things are best forgotten about, Bula is one of them.

Too right, well said fella!
Although I'm not sure the pics here represent things as I remembered them, have to see if I can dig anything up...

Still turning up to RetroRides in one of my two (admittedly subdued) Bula Ts, afraid a picture of my fat gut wrapped in one of them may be required, although how that's going to help the cause I don't know :?

I didn't realise there was any discussion, BULA defined cool for a few years, if only I could find my flouro headband...

Does BULA stand for:

Bloody hell, U, Look, Awful


BULA designed to make even the coolest looking people look uncool!
