Taps on bus bar

I'm looking for some advice. I found these lugs tapped onto the bus bars on the load side of the main breaker. The wires on the lugs are feeder wires for a sub-panel next to the main panel.

There were no schematics, diagrams or any other identifying information at all on this panel, only the name of the manufacturer (General Electric).

I could not determine if these were retrofitted onto the panel or if it was manufactured this way. Has anyone else seen these type of taps before? Thanks for your help.

Looks like an aftermarket modification.

If so, the panel really ought to be replaced.
