FAIL? That should win... (and at 12 years old I thought putting pedals on a Harley was pretty neat too!)

Back in the nascent days of the BMX scene, both Kawasaki and Yamaha offered full suspension moto bikes. I rode a knock off version of them, made by Gracco. I thought this thread was going to be about an old BMX bike and got excited.

Hey, I like the way that mechanic customized his bicycle.
It may be nothing more than cardboard and ductape, but it's artistic, and a good laugh.
If you have nothing positive to say, don't say anything.

What would be funny is trying to make a motorcycle look like a bicycle.

I thought so as well! Reminds me of Michael from the British TV series "I'm Alan Partridge" and his bike "Desert Storm!"
