That is sic... Memo to self, fix the brakes first before the new rubber.

Perhaps turn the forks around first?

The fork lugs are on backwards! That must be a trick to pull the front wheel in to gain cornering prowess.

I love it when the seller always ends his sentences with an exclamation point! You know the guy is legit when he does that!
I once tried running the forks backward like that! It severely reduced the trail! Made the bike corner like crazy!
Hey, do you guys want to help me sell my bike! It's better than that one!

Braaapin' aint easy.

LOL, seriously thanks for posting

There's a reason that pipe is so dented in the front. "Brand new" tires? And who brags about a new brake pedal?

|

11/7/2017 2:50 PM

Oh my Christ you have to be EXTRA SPECIAL to have the fork rotated around that side. I bet that thing sure rides funny.

It's worth the number already on it... in nickels

The forks got turned around when he put on the new "triple tiers"..........

|

11/7/2017 3:28 PM

That's all forked up!

Needs a couple Skull pics , and that thing would be the most beautiful bike on planet earth. I think the factory teams should shoot for this look myself. Just ooze's...." I'm a badass , can beat anyone or anything on the logging roads , right after I down this sixer! " Fuck yeah bro's! "

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

laughing Reminded me of a few pushies (bicycles) I've seen on display at shops such as K-Mart with the forks on backwards.

Has Yamaha tried this yet...?? I bet that would help the blue pig turn. tongue w00t

I'm guessing he used his ATC 250R as a guide when he put the forks back on.

|

11/7/2017 6:24 PM

Why is everyone saying the forks are on backwards ? Ever here on a racing caliper ? They need to be in front for cooling. It is true . I saw it on a CL ad once. silly

|

11/7/2017 6:31 PM

Haha does the front tire scrape the pipe??

|

11/7/2017 6:36 PM

That floppy brake line is sick!

Actually it increases trail for more straight line stability.

Edit: sorry for the serious post. Back to the funny shit.

Only thing missing is a thumb throttle.

|

11/7/2017 6:52 PM

What if, the bike is backwards and not the forks?

So, about the new brake pedal. That means that it replaced a broken one, which is frightening from the standpoint that there was a point where the bike had no brakes at all. Judging from the post, I feel comfortable in thinking that was acceptable to the owner and was ridden accordingly. Awesome!


Even funnier than the front brake being backwards is that its on the wrong side!

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
