What the hell is that :shock:

Are they forks from a motorbike or something? They are waaaaaay too big! Personally, I think its hideous with all those stickers on. Also, the description is a bit vague for a bike I can only assume is owned by an enthusiast - that isnt a factory build!!

The Commencal is an even bigger death trap!

Like the braking arm on the hard tail too!

Trying to work out he one would pedal the Kona with that gearbox thing on it.

Even scarier, people have bid on sone of them!

Or the fact that some of the bikes with brakes not working appear to be missing minor things like rotors!

Utter madness, but the bids! £500 for the orange, buy it and strip it and have a usable frame! Same with the others, just get rid of the shite

If he hasnt trashed the frame, one of them has a chain guide drilled into the frame.
The main thing i noticed is the backwards mounted xt cranks, the pedals will come undone.
