    I'd really hate to see what my future children's quirks were after I slid off that thing.

    Those handle bars must be clamped directly to the upper fork tubes

    Clip-on racebike bars. Yeah, they attach to the tubes.



    Good concept, poorly executed and not very rideable. Gimme 4 hours alone with it and I could fix it.

    One member on here pointed out how most mods forget to hack the tabs off the tank. Since then I see it too and it bugs the crap outta me. It takes 30 seconds with a cut off tool, c'mon!

    That was me. Drives me nuts. Not that I need need to drive, cuz it's a short walk.



    This bike has a commitment problem, s'all. If you're gunna saw it's nether reaches off, marry it and make it an honest vehicle.



    Leaf spring the seat and move it back a couple inches. Move the clip-ons to the top of the tubes so a non-contortionist who still has legs could ride it and commit to machining off the old bar clamps. Or just put some drag bars or something on it that makes sense. Where in the heck (and why) did he buy a 33 tooth sprocket? Drop the rear so it'll at least have an inch or two of trail. An air cleaner is a handy thing if you're gunna fling crap directly at yer carb on purpose. If there's even a pod on it I can't see it.



    Put a hugger on the swingarm, shorty fender on the fork brace and fer Gawd's sake lose the side cover tabs.



    See? I fissed it.



    And now whoever built it will come in here and hate me back and I'll prolly deserve it

    It IS different from the typical hollow modded, stretched swingarm, low pipe "custom" TW we see.

    That rider certainly dares to be different...



    Smart of him to put the stock handle bar clamp caps on so when you run into something and smash your "too cool for a helmet" face into the top triple clamp it won't poke holes in your handsome stubble covered face.



    It actually does a fair job of fitting into the currently popular custom bike scene: "Absurdity on two wheels".

    Clip on bars with knobbie tires, tractor seat and extended swingarm, front fender mount AS the fender.

    About the only thing wrong is that it still has rear suspension.

    Replacing the shock with a strut is required it seems.



    I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    But so is a sharp stick...



    Ya gotta love the freedom we have to make our own bike statement

    Truthfully, all bikes are great to me.

    Once I got it rideable I'd ride it. Just needs a little follow through.

    Where's the dog gonna ride?
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
