    The Henderson 6. Sorry about that. When I seen it, it was the only one I seen in the post. Object fixation. :fpalm

    :imaposer The scooter limo is much too cool to belong in this thread! So funny! :jack

    I can just see the kids arriving at their prom on this bike with the uniformed chauffeur driving them up to the door. :clap

    The most unloved A65 of all time, but this is taking it too far - it's even more ugly than in 1971. Sorry girl, it's a bloody eyesore.

    Why, if the builder is going for the ugly rat rod rust bucket old bike look...
    Would you put on a gold chain???? :confused

    I'm sure heating the gas in the tank with the headpipe helps performance.
    Not that it matters since the dual carb intakes are blocked by the riders left leg anyway.

    And the builder wanted the bike to look like that piece of junk? :loco
    Did someone actually pay money for that thing? :fpalm

    In the bike show class: "My bike's uglier than your bike!" this one is a winner :muutt

    How in the f-----k can they stand there and stare like it is a piece of art.Millenials sure know about taking on a black tshirt fad and calling themselves bike builders.I hoped they put insurance on it before they started the build. Good luck getting that piece of s---t insured and plated now.

    I do not like most "tupperware" bikes. I view motorcycles as mechanical contraptions, and as such the "mechanicals" should be seen.........However, the above is one "tupperware" M/C that i would love to own.

    I have seen it before [in photos] would like someday to see it in person.

    Thanks for sharing............

    Good old BikeExif does it again:

    Uh, huh?
    Lowered the forks 100mm, leaving maybe 25mm of suspension?
    Rear shocks with six to eight times as much travel as the forks?
    Dual big disc brakes, and "classic" fat Avon tires?
    Skate board seat with the exhaust under to make sure you ride "hot"?

    Still, it is a thousand times better than the butchered BSA posted above.

    I saw a video of this thing actually being ridden:

    The fire extinguisher is the fuel tank, it is worn like a backpack on the victim, er pilot...

    Lots of interesting work done...

    This bike reminds of one of those models made from discarded hardware...imagine it about 8 to 10 inches long, sitting on a desk.
    At least the one on the desk could serve a purpose as a paper weight...

    What about that exhaust. Talk about a hotseat.

    Which shop is going to start mounting clip-on bars BELOW the bottom triple clamp? :loco
    "Mine are lower than yours so I am more kool!" :rilla


    It will fit right in with the "my seat is smaller than yours" crowd. :fpalm


    Eventually we will see the opposite of ape hangers, with the hand grips and levers mounted to an extended front axle.
    On a bike with NO seat, just a shallow, flat, rectangular, rusty steel fuel tank that the rider (?) is supposed to lay on instead of having a seat.
    The foot pegs would, of course, have to be on the extended rear axle.
    Oh, and a hand shifter too!
    It would have to be a hard tail bike, with the front suspension, if any, no more than 1".

    :fpalm

    Okay, I'll admit it. I like the wheels on the silver one.
