Criminal abuse of skills...

Postby Fast Eddie » Sun Mar 26, 2017 1:12 pm

I'm usually the first to cry "to each his own" etc... But there are limits...

Whoever did the exhausts on this bike has awesome skill... And he (she?) wastes it on this kinda shite...

Still trying to figure out where it comes out in the back. I keep thinking we need a "like" button.

I gotta' agree... Those pipes make no sense to me on something I would ride... Here's another one listed on craigslist in pittsburg.

This bike builder obviously was thinking out of the box and went a bit wild with a tube bender-it will never catch on :!: ...or will it :?: :shock:

I think it is a great way to advertise his skills. From seeing that, I'd hire him if I needed a custom header. (But I'd watch him closely).

Sometimes wild customs are about what you COULD do, not what you SHOULD do.

I wish some of these idiots would just buy themselves a big block of marble and a hammer and chisel and stay away from motorbikes.

I don't like the pipes and the seat sucks but other than that I like that bike.

Not my style, but if it were i would have to have the rising section of the pipes match the slope of the forks.

How do you bend pipe like that? I want to build a set of stainless headers for my bike that look like stock chrome ones.

With those parts and the effort which has gone into making the frame, you could build something which actually functions the way a motorcycle should. The frame tube diameters are too thin, and will probably crack near the welds. And the steering geometry is probably dangerous. The lack of rear suspension would make it difficult to ride fast in corners. All-in-all it is a waste of space. If I wanted to look like an idiot, I can think of better ways of doing it.
