They are not dents . Looks like a huge ill conceived art project. The "dents" appear to be a duct - for post apocalypse rocket launchers or zombie shredders or some such stylistic BS.

The dead giveaway is the rinky little 250 motor, USD forks and clown shoes. It is not a motorcycle - it's an art piece. It is not relevant to anything on this site, but interesting to see what they are doing.

One disconnect we often see in bike projects is that "builders" typically focus on the look because they have no engineering background and what they don't get (in general) is that in a real motorcycle design studio, the builder needs to have engineers to work out what will work and what won't.

Our current crop of stretched swingarms and dented tank, swapped wheels and forks guys have no idea how a motorcycle works or what is safe and what isn't but they all believe that they are entitled to make whatever changes they want to make and anyone who doesn't like it is a hater. That's our narcissistic selfie world.

With these guys, we have no background to know what they are doing or why, so there is no context in which to review the work. If they would like to tell us more about the project and why they are doing it, I'm sure it would help. .................

This is the same "We are the custom motorcycle workshop, not a paint workshop." that built the "Night Roller CB650"
This is another circus performer build. I quit my interest as soon as I saw the Flintstone clown shoes.

Marc,
I missed that and gave them way too much credit and room to explain WTF they were thinking. Where's the coffee?

Yes, quite an eloquent reply you made there but I doubt your last sentence there will hold any water.

Looks like a welding class lesson on the blackboard.

Thanks for all your comments, firstly this bike is not for running, it's an art project. We want to make something crazy, something difference and we are trying to auction, all the money gets from this bike will be give for children that are victims of orange agent. Our design is not perfect but we build it by hand with just hammer and little tool because we want our product have spirit. For the last 2 years, we have been built more than 30 bikes for rider all around Vietnam with all the joy and happiness :).

And also we come from poor and small country but it has about 36 million motorcycle running, so we have a little bit knowledge about engine, and motorcycle. We are happy to have comments from you and if you guy come to Vietnam just let us know by email to [email protected], we will be happy to take care of your bike, and maybe we can ride a trip together :D

Ride free!!!

See, now that we know it's an art project that changes things. If it were my art project I would have made the knee and hand dents a solid piece that was tunneled through the tank. it wouldn't matter if you lost some fuel capacity because it's art, not a rider.
