    Well this has some potential, on thumpertalk, the owner says 'work in progress, just needs a custom seat'
    Can't wait for that.

    Painstakingly painted each link on the chain with a red felt tip pen.

    Is it me or do you or would you need to be retarded to paint the chain red (My apologies to the retarded) I do however quite like the look of the head light, maybe he never got around to creatively amending that, he however never got it pointed at the road surface either.

    You can buy colored chains... cheap.
    Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Silver, Black, etc.
    Not counting the popular gold plated chains

    Of all the problems I have with that bike, the color of the chain is pretty far down the list.

    Still needs a custom seat? I can not believe the builder doesn't have access to a skateboard. :augie

    The skateboard is the most comfortable vehicle he owns. He can't trash it to make a seat.

    I thought this thread was about bikes we / you fucked up. Its easy to ID others "mistakes"- there are lots of those threads.

    Readily recall an nice clean OEM Hodaka B, back in the day;
    and WAY too many holes drilled for sake of light weight.
    Brown seat & grips aren't a unique symptom of moto-youth.

    I agree that people admitting to ruining bikes themselves was the original intent, as well as the most interesting part of this thread.

    "Slabside" wheels & color promptly recall H-D's 'fatbob' series for me.

    Thankfully no photographic evidence remains of fuckups I created in my younger days. As for my current bikes, they're still undergoing the upfucking process..
