it's nothing more than a show bike. i've seen guys take the front brakes off of their harleys which I really dont get. this isnt as bad since he is still stopping with the front.

i'd like to know how much was spent on that!!! i like it

I think its cool, some stuff is lame like the spikes and gator seat but i think its a nice show-toy.

At least hes aware that hes just making a show bike and not something functional and left a single rotor to brake with.

Sure do. Most of them weight under 300 lbs, and make under 100hp.

My racebike only has one front brake and the rear brake, it stops fine. I wouldnt want to go roadracing with one front brake though. Im sure one front brake works fine in that guys application of just cruising around town

according to the HD guys using the front brake will cause the bike to flip and get you killed.

well the bike is so heavy and the manly men on them are generally heavier than mortal's so when they use those epic patented Harley Davidson Mega Brakes on the front theres a good chance all that manly weight will create too much momentum and throw you forward. duh.

I have seen too many fast bikes with one front rotor to count. They all seem to stop just fine.

He could probably save another 5lbs by removing the kick stand. Doesn't look like he needs it with that rear tire.
