If I didn't have too many projects and not enough cash... I'm glad that he shares my opinion of 80's Honda V4 Carbs to be the WORST to deal with.
 
you would be better of with the interceptor though cant make that frame very sporty
i had a 500 interceptor it was a great lil bike
 
Not saying you'd be able to make it ap sporty as the interceptor, but with some mods to the mufflers and relocating the pegs, could get turned from a cruiser to a standard style.
 
Can't decide if genius, or unfocused laziness?? Is this the perfect 50/50 café/bobber? Maybe if it was painted all WW2 Army green? I don't know, each to their own I suppose, but I think it's ugly, but maybe could be saved.

Only beats public transportation, some pro tapers and a bigger seat with lots of foam would be good... efficiency to jobsite and back man!

This one has been around the block and has even been on here before as a craigslist add. If I remember the CL add right, the guy that built it was not genius, or unfocused lazieness. I think the correct word is "doucher". He talked about how it was some raw horsepower machine that only a real man can handle haha. Looks like this guy that bought it must not have been "man enough"

I'm no Pro, but it sure looks like the engine was painted with ONE coat of black! And no air filters on the carbs can't be good?

Looks like some amateur salt-flat race-bike without its fairing on... Some finishing touches could actually make this thing look nice. Stance isn't horrible but the seat looks stupid, and it needs some sort of filter(s) on it! Even if its velocity stacks with a screen, it looks ghetto as fuck just sitting with its holes uncovered.
 
its a junk unridable parts bike with a ruined cut 'n raked frame neck
whoever bilt it is dumber than a day old #^$%&^*()_
