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.

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.

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

Yes, the "Brick" wasn't the prettiest of motorcycles, but there's one sure-fire way of making it look worse, give an idiot an angle grinder......... ;D

I almost like the bottom one mate, except for the mismatched wheels, which looks cheap. I still think mine looks better. It'll go better too, when I install the turbo kit Ted sold me......;D

 I was kidding.  The one built on here had a theme to it and things fit together quite  well.

I guess it's a fashion right now, but personally I just don't get the whole "chop off the arse, fit a Chinese made mini seat and wrap the exhaust in a bandage" thing.
And $19,000 !!!

LOL  ;D
  Yeah,I was also wondering why they remove the sidecovers,electrics,battery,airbox and it looks like a see-through window/open-space under the seat.I could imagine someone could design custom-made,clear plastic 'glove boxes' to install underneath that space,to carry stuff:it's close to the center of gravity.Possibly a clear plastic,custom auxiliary fuel tank.They're sure opening-up space below the seat.. why not put something useful down there. lol

They could also install 2 mini-flatscreens facing either side,advertising something as the bike rolls by:something's missing from down there.. lol

This thing can't even come close to the artistry that went into the steam punk bike!  It's just a bunch of junk stuck onto a previously useable bike.
