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.

Tell me again what the technical reason for pipewrap is?

In any case, that bike looks like ass.
The purpose of the pipewrap is to keep the heat (energy) in the exhaust, this keeps the velocity up and allows better scavenging and improved volumetric efficiency.
But it's still slow, still looks like ass, and I'd still rather drive my truck.

I might reply with a WTF more often then is called for, but this is a serious W.T.F. How is that front end holding all that weight? And holy shit that thing had to be big bucks.

So you're saying he put that thing on a dyno and tuned the carb after chopping off the stock exhaust?

In his case the reason for pipe wrap is cause he likes how is looks, or he's covering up a shitty workmanship.

Exactly. So he needs heatshields on top of that?
No, he wants to ride a bike covered in chrome, with Captain Retard pipes (all for looks, of course) but won't pony up for a transition between his "headers" (headers that go all the way to the rear axle?) and fishtails.

He's a fucking hack, and his bike looks like shit. At least he's trendy & cool with the Village People.

He has the freedom to ride what he wants & I have the freedom to call out his lameness.

And with little chrome skulls. Cute. And if you look closely, I think that the front turnsignal lenses are... skulls.

There is enough on this bike for everybody-- you caught it. :)

A prime example of "more money than sense". BIG bucks for a POS.

My guess is that the pipewrap keeps the passenger from carbonizing his/her leg.

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

Is that a Buck 119? If so, that's a pretty good OTC knife.
