At least the name of the bike is appropriate, "Badmax". :neener:     I would imagine it handles pretty bad,  except for maybe in a straight line.

all that chrome makes me think they were going for a show bike, the blower is superfluous. I remember when Yamaha came out with those in the mid 80's and people were hanging NOX bottles on them as soon as they rolled off the showroom floor. Shave a couple tenth's off that quarter mile, eh?

I believe a lot of show bikes and cars sometimes had no internals or oil. I used to work with a guy who had a show 48-215 Holden and he had no oil in it.  :dunno
