I love this bike!

I don't know how you guys feel, but this is one of the coolest custom choppers I have seen. Crusty and dirty is my thing.

maybe it will appeal to the crowd who pays $200 for a pair of jeans w/ holes in them?

He had a show Build or Bust if you built the bike in 30 days you got to keep it. One of the winners was a blacksnith that rusted his bike that is where I guess he got the idea from.

I have always Liked Exile that are very clean choppers.

I just read the bio of Russel on his site, he's had a strange life. Dr., model, bike builder...must be tough.

So it needs to be chromed out and overpainted to be worth $55K to you.

Jesse James actually did that first with his Vanilla Gorilla bike.

nope
gold or platinum plated maybe
It's a cool bike, but does the fact that exile built it make it worth that much more than the sum of it's parts? I wouldn't pay 55k for 5 of them. I'd rather buy a bunch of junked parts and build my own.

I understand what you are saying but it's not junk parts on this bike. It's top notch equipment with a patina and finish to resemble age. Hey you could buy it in kit form for about 30K and put the labor into building it and finishing it.

The sum of all the parts on the bike doesn't even look to be over $15k max, and that's being generous. Nothing against the bike, but $30k for the kit is nuts. What people pay for these things just boggles my mind.

Exactly! For what they charge and what you get for that cost is utterly rediculous, w/o the labor. $8k just for the motor? Bwaaaahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!

It's nice that Russel took a week to hand chisel the logo into the tank. The guy that was a blacksmith only had a month to complete his bike and that included him showing the guys at exile how he cut the tank in have and hand chiseled an anvil into each side of the tank before welding it back together and then giving everything the rusted finish. So I guess that's where exile came up with the idea. Worth 55K, NO WAY. you can buy complet kits that need to be assembled for under 20k depending on what kind of parts you want. You can even put one together cheaper than that.
