Hey Gio - I Like This

Pic #1 - This is the kind of bike once I get a garage that I want to always be tinkering with - You know - Find a frame - Later get a Motor - Then score some wheels - Well, you see where I am going - My ideal Solo Rider Chop - Will always have the Dyna as she is my 2up Cruiser

This to me is one bad ass basic old school style chop

And of course, Pic #2 would be my dream Chop - Such a classic and love the seat - Would change out the Fish Tail Tips as they are just not my style - Love the way there is no Front Brake too

And mind you, this is the Cruiser Forum - So all you haters that say:

Harleys Suck and are for fags
I like straight bars
Choppers are gay
And so on and so on

Your comments need not be posted - Jog on back to the Open Forum and discuss why Gixxers Rule, Ducatis Suck and for the $$, you can build a better PC and Macs suck balls

There is a forclosure across the street from me for 59k. 3 bd 1.5 ba finished basement, 1 car garage. It's the same as my townhouse. Buy it, store bikes in the garage, projects in the living room. It will be cheaper than (3) years of renting storage in the city. I'll manage the property, free of charge. Let me park a few rolling bikes there. Then buy that chopper and you can go outfit shopping for the new bike. Done and done.

Bug your a dork!

Capt. America bike is classic. Billy Bike is better. Other one has terrible lines (black one). I guarantee I can build you a better chop. Just have your wallet open if you want me to make it nice.

Things I won't do. Powder coat, Evo or newer motor, rear suspension and fat tires.

Now start sending money so this winter I can start building.

For a chop I like the lines of this bike.

Bug you don't want to live south of I 88 and especially not south of 55. There is a reason you can buy a house that cheap, its like virtually Indiana.

Goober ~ Ha ~ Awesome use of term ~ As for fat, that is the 661 Suit under my Jersey ~ I am in the best shape I have been in since college ~ You wanna do a weigh off there Pugsley?

Gio ~ I do like that bike indeed ~ What caught my eye on that Black one is its simplistic & raw look

Not a lot goin on ~ Just basic badd assery

Yeah but the BILLY WIIIIINGS bike is about $40K worth of Bad Ass

That old Black Chop can be done for 2/3rd that cost

40K if you let the Harley Dealer do your work again. Not even the Gents bike was 40K

I read on some blog some where that BWs bike was built here in the Mid West and was almost $40K to build

I did not care for the Gents Bike really - I almost like Comanches bike better than Gents - Pistol had the ride too

To be honest, I think my last true ST Twistie run was with you and Jrock

That Superduke was fun....
