I saw a "deraked" bike in the latest issue of Cycle Source, and just thought it was awesome. The bike was called the Slaying Mantis.

Anyone got any pics of other 'deraked' bikes out there that they would share with my ever expanding "Motorcrap.img" file?

Sorry, just my opinion, but I think those bikes are just awful looking.

First time I saw a derake I seriously thought it had been wrecked and the guy just kept riding it that way.
