    If you work at a bike shop, you will probably have seen customer's bikes with the most outrageous things done to them.

    Actually... when done right it holds :21: Got at least two bikes that have the steering bar mounted that way.

    To help you out, the "steering bar" is called the handlebars.

    Here is a dangerous handlebar setup. What happens when you hit a pothole.

    This tweaker bike, or should I say stoner bike because of all the weed related stickers was just left outside the front of the bike shop when it was closed. It was wrapped in outer space themed Duck Tape and then covered in the weed stickers. There is also a bunch of clear tape wrapped around the stem.

    Brakes? On a bike covered in weed stickers?

    It only has a front brake, which the cable snapped off of.

    There were also beer stickers on it too, but not as much as there were weed stickers!

    Not stupid or dangerous but... Ok, the backwards seatpost is stupid. Nice art bike though. It is really cool in person.
