Default Weird, Wacky & Dangerous Motorcycle Modifications!

Hi,

Use this thread to postweird, wacky, stupid and dangerous modifications done on a motorcycle. We have a weird and wacky thread for automobiles in our forum, i thought it will be better to have a dedicated one for Two Wheelers. Let me start this thread by posting the picture of such a dangerous mod that i came across in the recent past.

Picture is of an RD350 converted to look like a HH-CBZ. Ok, leaving that part alone and if you bring your gaze on tot he front disc brake setup you will notice something that is very stupid and very dangerous. Can you spot what's wrong?

I see a massive fab steel bracket to mount the caliper. Is he using the axle pinch cap bolt. The drum is still there?

Yep it's a combi brake guys The disc is mounted on to the front drum. The caliper is held in place by a bracket fabricated out of sheet steel that's around 3mm to 5mm thick. The bracket is held in place by one of the axle pinch (thanks for the word Mpower, i didn't know what to call those) bolts and the mudguard stay bolts. I wonder how the bracket would withstand the forces generated during braking. Poor RD.

pulsarmaniac, is that a Pulsar based Busa? There was an article about a Pulsar based Busa in one of the automags.

On observing the exhaust pipe from the engine, me thinks the R1 is a mod-ed CBZ.
