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

  2. MEnerd says:

    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.

  3. BobbyMIke says:

    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.

    I think they are robots.
