    I think the bikes are related to the Japanese Dekotora trucks.

    It seems to me like the bikes are owned by kids who want to be bousouzoku. Or they’re too poor to buy a motorcycle.

    I think my intuition is correct. They’re called Dekochari and they were a direct response to the Dekotora truck craze.
    Bousouzoku tend to be scarier.
