I honestly can't fathom how stupid someone must be to even consider riding something like that...seriously, I swear people's brains run on hamsters and hamster wheels,and just stop when the hamster has to take a break to lick his asshole... And I'm pretty good at making terrible decisions.

I think the douche who started that project eventually realized his own handiwork would get him killed so he decided to try and pass it off as an uncompleted custom build.
The only thing more shocking that the debauchery he calls custom is the price he actually thinks it's worth!
Looks like he "stretched" the swing arm with parts from an old pool ladder in the background.

Re: The $hit You See on Craigslist...

Made an offer for $850, figured if i can get it that cheap i could just strip his handy work away and replace everything......he laughed and hung up. i think he actually thinks this kind of work is legit.

Tweekers Unite. That swingarm scares me and I'm not scared of anything.

Re: The $hit You See on Craigslist...

i rode from binghamton up to the syracuse bike night with a few friends a while back and this bike was there. the reason it hasnt been ridden much is because it runs like absolute shit. barely starts. when it does start he revs the piss out of it when its still cold. oh and either the frame or the forks/triples are bent. not front to back so much as left to right. like its twisted. also im sure if you ask him about the 3 mode switch he will still insist that it "has a 600cc mode, 750cc mode. and a 1000cc mode" oh and apperently "white smoke means its got power" and "if you ride it too long it over heats because its a race bike"... seriously? how about the fact that the head gasket in it is shit?

1998 GSXR 7/10, pretty much stock

Re: The $hit You See on Craigslist...

I wonder how much power he lost running the drive over to the right hand side? Not that is matters since that whole bike is a cluster.
