    Instant bobbers & cafe racers

    Isnt this the truth. As a rider of carburetted bikes, it's disheartening to see original bikes transformed into copies of Youtube-salesmen' cafe's & blobbers to be briefly ridden by Sons of Anarchists. Both of which are created with all the youthful optimism that they will be onsold to fund the next "big build".
    The original chrome parts & tinware are replaced by bad new Chinese parts, which are nowhere near as good as the good old Taiwanese parts. The takeoffs either get sold cheaply to people like me, or sit in sheds decomposing.
    But, this thread is about optimistic sellers. For your delectation & mirth I give you the following, the seller assures us that there are almost no original parts left on the bike.
    Noone is watching this sale anymore but it attracted quite a few curiosity seekers for the first month along with the usual "why" questions which were met curtly. In the bike's favour it has some good bits & could probably be ridden to the moon, the accessorising is idiosyncratic. Enjoy.

    That poor fellow is in for such a disappointment.

    Let's hope he doesn't really need the money

    Um, well apart from the comedy handlebars and, whatever that thing on the back is, he's made it look, well, like every other harley. What was the point?

    I'm pleased to see stirrings hereabout. This thread used to accompany my morning coffee.

    Went for a group ride once and a guy had one of those. He may have also owned a Honda dealership. It's an impressive lump but not really practical around here. West Australia maybe?

    I think that this is a very practical bike ,well it must be because he is carrying part of the wrought iron gate from his grandmothers back garden on the back of the seat
