Check out the tailpipes on some of these! and the front splitter at 54 secs and coincidently the little dance the marshal does to encourage a bit of revlimiter action.
Cant make my mind up if its a pisstake or not.

bosozoku,

By the way this thread was not started to Diss the Japanese, but rather to inspire builders of rods here in England as to what can be achieved with a bit of thought about aesthetics. Form over function etc. :D
They can't possibbly drive around like that can they? if they do its nice to see they get away with it over there, imagine how far you'd get in this country before you got a pull from plod, probably make you hang a bit of rag at the extreems of the overhangs, Plus imagine what the MOT man would make of them after he'd stopped laughing.
:tup:

The first vid with all the revving reminds me of something someone put up on a forum I used to be one.

3 Japanese guys on bikes doing a kind of musical rev thing bouncing off the limiter. I dont think they were bosozoku bikes, but they might have been. I just cant find that bloody video anywhere and it's no longer on that forum.

Edit: Found it in this video. It's the very last clip with 3 bikes. If you can sit through it you're better than me

I LOVE this stuff it blows the stuck in the mud trying to live in the crappy fifties stuff right out of the water, well it would if they all didnt try to dress like Elvis at an onion peeling competition:incheek:

It doesn't do anything for me, but to be fair, I imagine my reaction is much like the reaction of a lot of people in the late 70s when they saw everything from Mk1 Escort RS's to Hemi Challengers with extended spring shackles, flake paint and crushed velvet interiors that'd make a whore house look subtle...and I loved all that stuff (still do)! They're having fun, innit, and you can't knock that...

After watching both video's the bikes and cars I'm begining to think the Japanese have no appreciation for BASS tones! give me a V8 rumble anyday.
