Damn shame.
At least they kept it basic black instead of some hideous paint job with spike bolts and crap.

About like putting 30" spinners, fake Buick exhaust ports, and fart pipe mufflers on a Ferrari Enzo. It's just...wrong.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WHY? They should do interviews/background checks to find out the new owners intentions on anyone buying an RC.

On a serious note, it is a shame and think a bike like that is pointless and disgusting, but to each his own. I'm sure there are plenty of people out there that would look at my RC and ask WHY? and think it was stupid looking and a big waste of money.
I do wonder what the motor mods are. Drag bikes are not my thing, but some of the motor work can be impressive, even if it is a light bulb.

Engine mods, He probably made that up. The front fairing around the head lights looks interesting. I think it was done by foot.
