Another activity is speeding in city streets, not usually for street racing but more for thrills.

Many members were from the lower socioeconomic class and they may have joined the gang to express their dissatisfaction with the society. Gang fights were also common where weapons like Molotov cocktails, steel pipes, baseball bats and wooden swords were used. The biker members usually have tattoos and customize their bikes to have their own distinctive styles which are usually showy, colorful and noisy. The bosozoku uniforms are usually passed down and could not be washed as this is the rule by their gangs.

Japan has taken inspiration from these modified motorcycles and used the term bosozoku for their quirky and creatively modified cars. Bosozoku cars tend to be flashy and have exaggerated, over-the-top designs.
