Put down the hacksaw and slowly step away from the motorcycle before someone gets hurt...

Seriously. Please someone explain how this seat and "hardtail" job is safe to ride without grave risk to your manhood. Not to mention the lack of a fork brace and front brake. I feel a moral obligation to point this out. I fear some hapless buyer may end up with this because it looks "cool".

Looks dangerous, I imagine the front swing arm bushings are in for a beating, but what is the cocktail shaker thingie for? Well, at least it has a hi-end ostrich seat cover. Too "Steampoop" for my tastes.

OK I'm going to assume 1. South Carolina has no inspection requirements 2. It doesn't run and is only a conservation piece.

You are correct, there is no vehicle inspection in SC, hasn't been in 20 years or so. The bike has a current tag on it :eek:

I wonder if the "builder" has ever considered the possibility of him being sued or held criminally liable if someone gets hurt or killed riding that piece of crap. OEM vehicle manufacturers go out of their way to insure the safety of their products, any problems usually mean an army of lawyers showing up to sue them into the poorhouse.

No. He's safe. The lawyers will conclude that anyone who did this wouldn't have 2 nickel to rub together and innocent by reason of criminal stupidity. Best legal defense is being broke.

Darwinian evolution at its best. One pothole and as he lands back on the rear tyre his knackers will be removed swiftly; and with it his chance of breeding.
