one front rotor??

hey guys i just got a '98 gsxr750, it's had some mods done for speed, air shifter, bigger sprocket, that kind of thing, i was cleaning the front wheel this morning and i noticed it only has one front rotor and caliper. the front fender is also missing, i know the bike was down because of scratches on the right side, do you guys think the rotor/caliper got damaged also and the guy was too cheap or is this a common mod for lightening the bike? sorry if it sounds like a dumb question, it seems a little dangerous to cut the brake system in half to lose a few pounds. thanks for any response.

No.........This is a common mod in drag racing. It boils down to personal choice.
