I am curious though, is the helmet a legal requirement down there? And why place the headlights so far back they're impeded by the open wheels? Seems like they're there just to make it legal for the road, not to allow someone to drive it at night.
I was out at lunch last summer and saw one of these parked. Talked to the owner for a little bit, and he said he had to add a few parts here and there including a pair of DOT Harley headlights in order to pass inspection. I guess they really are bare bones from the factory (or assembler or whatever).
