Whilst we have the theme of bad taste customs going. I think this fits the bill pretty well.:sad:

Seen that on the bay last night , I don’t know if it’s just the photos but it looks like it’s been shunted at both ends, the wheelbase looks extremely short I wouldn’t imagine it would be very stable at speed

The pictures to me gives the impression that the rear wheel is not inline with the front wheel.:lol:

Reading his ebay sale article. With all that effort you would think that what appears to paint smears on the seat would have been cleaned off.

PTB Riser, right knuckle dusting affair.:lol:

He's gone to all the expense of getting CNC/Billet yokes for it and had them made to alter the rake angle.

It must handle like a pig on and ice rink.

P.S. I do like the risers tho.

Is there no law against altering the structure of a road-going vehicle? That bike doesn't look safe to me. I think if anyone wants to start altering the geometry it should have to be inspected before it can be used on the road.

Kinell, the trailer and contents in pic 4 look a safer bet.

It wouldn't take much to finish it.


Half a gallon of petrol and a match should do it.

When I saw the title 'dodgy customs' I thought it was going to be about cultures around the world doing weird s!$%, like marrying your sister, sleeping with your daughter in law on her wedding night or walking around with one tit hanging out painted purple.

I thought it was about HM Customs officers being over-exuberant with the putting-on of surgical gloves 2507
