Not unless they made a radical change to the frame & swingarm somewhere along the way.

If you can't be a good example, at least try to be a horrible reminder.

There is absolutely no reason to post craigslist LINKS. If you take the time to upload the picture somewhere reliable, AND quote the text in your post, it will be there long enough for people to see and comment on later.

I agree.  A screenshot saved to a hosting site, as I did above, is another good option.

What..... is...

 holee  ...


Gah...

that's so clever, it's twisted. far as I can tell, its deliberately painted to look like a rustbucket?
I really hope that's paint, anyhow ;)


now THAT's a "Low"rider.
what's it got, all of 1 inch clearance?
Does it throw sparks every time he tries any kind of turn?

Did it come in on a flatbed? :-/

And even if it was ridable your leg would get pulled into the front sprocket within 5 miles.

I honestly hope that bike was completely ruined beyond use of any part before they did that to it... but odds are it ran perfectly fine.

Not much common sense on this build... Is that exhaust really blowing straight onto the riders right knee?... Is the battery really mounted in front of the rear tire with no protection from road elements slung from the tire? ... No suspension makes for a rough ride... And I like the two bolts/nuts right in front of the seat so when you hit a bump on decel you can rip your sack on em...

I don't mind looks so much, unfortunately much was overlooked, maybe rushed, maybe incomplete?  :dunno_black:
