    From the recent posts, it seems most of these bike builders have been attacked by a terrible virus! :yikes

    No not Covid-19. It's a virus that attacks their brain and makes them think that it's a great idea to lop the ass-end off of whatever bike they come into contact with. :(

    I sure hope there's a cure.

    I guess my reaction to all these "mistakes in judgment" is something like the reaction to the radical choppers of the late 60's and early 70's. I think it's called getting old. Back then we were trying to make bikes go faster and handle better, not just trying to make them look silly and do nothing particularly well.

    I'll just mention that this is actually an e-bike.

    I can tolerate this one a little. I’d ride it...


    Albeit not far, but I’d ride it.

    This is the kind of bike I would be proud of if I got it free and got it running and rideable for under $30.
    And I had no more money to make it look better...

    ...and would scrounge through the junkyard to find tires that would actually make it act like a real motorcycle.

    I guess the thing that irritates me the most about these abominations, is they so often start with a pretty nice motorcycle.

    Is it just me, or do others find it difficult to imagine a 125cc bike as "Bad-azz"?

    The bicycle pedal on the kick-start lever doesn't help.

    Looks like it may have been a Honda XL125.
