It looks like the Caliper on the FORD siezed up and rather than replace it someone unbolted it, tied it up and forgot about it.

This is why when buying a used anything, you need to inspect it.

OMG, now I have seen everything You can see that the bolts that hold the caliper on are sheared off. So instead of drilling them out and retapping lets just tie that sucker up there. Still have three working calipers so what could happen. Jeeeezee.

Wanted to see why a painted caliper post had so much traffic... geez. I agree, no need for the hater post. I've had mine painted for 15 months and don't have a scratch. My wife's Rumble Bee has hit 5 years without a problem, my GSXR has been good for 7. So, I've played this game now too. Your turn now I suspect. That stuff drives me crazy. It's like the post that talked about someone taking off their dealer installed splash guards and the first post was "have fun picking out all the rock chips" and "have fun sweeping out your bed rug every week" on another. I'm sure this will turn into a train wreck, but it is ironic to say have fun with the painted calipers flaking and chipping and then say you went with covers ......... and painted them.

And if this stuff drives you nuts you should stay off forums lol. Some hate stuff others love it its like anything guy puts hid's in stock headlights will get flamed by some praised by others. Its all about opions and experience. Some give good info some give bad its all about how much you read into it. Ive had bad experience with painted calipers you've had good well great for you im glad the covers are a whole different story had them powder coated and what did i say about the calipers i had powder coated ummm humm they lasted
