Check out the swingarm and the washers. Seems safe to me.

And what the fuck is that chain for? Limit swing arm suspension travel? Seems like a lot of slack for that.

the extra chain is a jack shaft to keep the engine/wheel center to the frame.

Very fucked up bike and looks just like the hack work the guy down the street rides!

interesting concept but I dont like where the exhaust ends nor the looks of the swing arm. And I would have powder coated the front forks flat black to match the rest of the bike. Call me crazy, but I'd like some sort of rear brake light on my bike and gauges.

great head turner.
I'm sure the hand made, straight exhaust pipes have nothing to do the the "Head turning"
