    Really cool bike. I would only change the seat so it sits a little bit more flat because as of now I would feel like I was sliding into the back wheel I think.

    Perversly fascinating. It must be interesting with no front brake and no engine braking.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened

    what would you do with it?

    I'd say one's frame would need to be of some aboriginal mutated variety to actually even thinking about being able to sit on it, steer with those bars without having knees in the armpits because that is where your family jewels would have to be

    or maybe it's actually a girls bike and one that has very short inseam and a disturbingly long torso with an extra elbow between the regular one and wrists

    I'm stumped....... clue me in

    is there a punch line?

    Hope they detuned the RD engine so you don't fall off the back of that seat on to the tire.

    I like it. I've recently developed a taste for board trackers. Maybe there is some room for improvements to actually ride it but I like the execution and creativity.

    I think it is interesting to look at but, only if I can not think about it as an actual motorcycle to ride.

    It's a lot of work to build a durable one off bike. Sometimes it would appear to require even more work to make it un-ridable.

    Wanker, while this is a pretty open forum, there are limits. You are going to have to change your sig image or your posts will start getting deleted. No biggie...but it needs to be done.
    Thanks,
