I like how he couldn't figure out how to connect the fishtails to the regular pipes and make it look good, so he added pipewrape. A 2 foot segment in the middle of the chrome.

Fucking hack.

Incorrect.

Those are covers installed over the pipewrap.

Still look like trick or treat time. Do the skull eyes light up?

This is the neatest, cleanest, impeccably dressed "biker" I have ever seen. Looks like an actor in a motorcycle club movie.

I like how you couldn't figure out that he's got heat shields over his wrapped headers, and were kind enough to broadcast your ignorance over the internet.

Yes, rather the other end of the spectrum from the other "Yikes. pipes!" guy...



Both have that air of silliness, but the second guy looks more the real deal.

Gee. No gloves would be even better. How well do they crash? Dress for the wreck, not for the ride.

Heatshields over the pipe wrap? I figured he wasn't that lame.

Tell me again what the technical reason for pipewrap is?

In any case, that bike looks like ass.

BOTH these cruiser badass pipe guys FAIL.

Where are their whips??

Mr neat-and-clean has some leather kids bike tassels so he might get 1/2 credit.

But no evil biker guy whips? How they gonna' teach those bad drivers to listen for loud pipes if they can't lay a beating on them with some whip action?

I like the handle bar mounted to the downtubes. I'm guessing to be used as Highway pegs.

And noone here caught what looks like an axe head on the back of his highrise back rest/oar wanna be bike? And I thought we were here to really complain.
