I was watching this video and started noticing the weld's done on the frame. Now i am glad i had a mentor show me how to weld with a stick welder many years ago. All i cam say is WOW, and i am not interested in riding it.

OK the welds do need work. Whats up with the dual coil over shocks up front?
The front wheels are car rims but the tires are Motorcycle. BIG issue there. I am not making this comment about mismatching rims and tires from ignorance. I have run a Car tire on my Motorcycle rim for many years now and about 160,000 miles.
The big problem with a cars 14 inch rim is it is 14 inch but a Motorcycle rim is 14.25 inch. This make it a bit hard to fit a smaller inside diameter Car tire on a larger Motorcycle rim, been there many times.
But when you reverse this and put a larger diameter Motorcycle tire on the smaller Car rim, the motorcycle tires bead will not be down in the rim by much and it makes it easier to BLOW the tire off the rim.
I would not ride it. I would not ride next to it. Not an over all bad design, just, IMHO, quality control is missing.

I believe the welds are ugly but probably strong enough to hold together. I would ride the h*ll out of it. I’ve seen worse and ridden worse..(including most of my youthful projects). Given the distraction of the horrible music and then the rapid time lapse evolution of the build, it’s difficult to judge the the overall quality. I would say it was someone’s pride and joy. He made something unique and fun from a pile of junk parts. It is obvious there was some very spartan budgetary constraints on this project.
