I guess they are all from Russia at least the first on is :} I'm guessing the bike one has to be someplace like India.

I was admiring the  ingenuity of the 3rd picture when I realised that he'd also replaced the wheel with a wooden rim.  The guy must all the guts and none of the brains either that or he's Guy Martin!

The guy in photo 3 is definately not safety conscious. Aside from the cable ties holding the split in the tyre together, I've just noticed the swept area of the brake disk :o Just a small clean band in the middle instead of across the whole surface, the brakes must be at about 20% efficiency at most %%

I did mean picture number 4, that guy is ingenious.  The guy with the tyre is a moron!

Thanks for sharing Brian and reminding us why we have laws for transport! The brake system is quite complex in design if nothing else :o

Have a look at the repair on the lower fork in the third from last picture. Apparently it "starts and drives" too {-)

At least we know that due to the cable tie they won't slide off the axle mount :o

No not much:O)

Ironically, it would  make a good project to fix up properly and perhaps sell for a small profit.

I think the auction has now ended :((
