Those sure are different, they look like kids bikes compared to what we see here in the states.

Roger, What an unusual looking collection of bikes. That one in # 2 looks like an accident waiting to happen, with what looks like an unsupported aluminum hard tail swing arm. :shock: That front rotor in # 3 looks like it could easily pull double duty in a saw mill. :lol: It DOES look like a fun little Cafe Bike though.
I've got to give them all a big "E" for effort in the creativity department. ;)

Eagle interesting you should say that because that's the look they're after, kind of 'cartoony' which is also why Manga is so popular. I've been following the Japanese custom bike scene for a few years now and love their 'out there' approach, I didn't expect to see some in the flesh on a two day stopover so I was delighted. Bruce there is a welded rigid angle block jammed in there, but still I reckon there's a fair bit of flex in that extended swingarm lol. The cafe racer is cool eh....shaunknee thanks glad you like.
