Maybe so on the front. But it would probably work better if it had a master cylinder.  IDK maybe it's pull string operated.

So how fast do you think the oil will drain itself out?  That tank looks a little crooked to me. But the guy did a bang up job with the electrics, don't ya think?🤪 Looks like he was able to put almost everything behind the ONE sidecover!

It is a beautiful piece of work, all it needs is to be taken apart and sold as parts!

Yeah, well I think it's probably still a work in progress, so eventually he'll get the brakes and oil tank sorted. It's a "Po-boy" custom, if I did it I think I'd buy one of Cycle-X's frames, and a custom oil tank etc, but this thing could be finished properly and made into a nice ride. But I am drinking heavily, and taking some very strong pain killers, which are working very well together I must say, so who knows what I'm actually looking at? Carry on. ;D   
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

According to the seller, this mess has a GPZ 900 motor in it, but is titled as a ‘84 ZX7. I can feel the outrage of Kawasaki fans everywhere.

I assume this is a rendition of what you look like after riding this menace.

How the f%*k do these things go around a corner ? Completely impractical, but I guess that wasn't there intention when they built them. More about being hipster cool and outdoing the next guy.

I like it!  I’d ride it just the way it is!

Yep, a great bike for American roads, but no good for anywhere with corners. ;D
