    Those "lowering blocks" on the rear shock are obviously incorrectly installed... There was supposed to be a hold-down bolt at the rear to prevent them from pivoting up.......However, you couldn't install it on a 450 unless you modified the axle-slot in the swingarm a LOT...OR, modified the blocks, adding a hold down....(the blocks were designed for use on the 500, 550, and 750 fours)......
    I hope your not implying this guy had no idea what he is doing! LOL!

    "Restored" is misunderstood by this person.

    "Custom" is a word being abused by this person.
    Unfortunately, the classifieds are littered with these "customs" nowadays. Most simply have the rear half of the seat frame lopped off, and a set of straight bars tacked on. A piece of plywood covered with vinyl is tacked on for the seat, and the whole mash-up is liberally doused with flat black spray bomb. Voila - instant Custom!
