Laim im sorry but why do peeps think these are just so cool...i mean the paint job is pretty cool but other then that its a pos....It has no power no suspention no anything just something somebody threw togeather with no REAL enginering just seems so stupid to me....

Woo-Hoo lets pay 40 grand for something that took less then 3 days to hand build and has no real purpose other then to look good (opinions only i think they look like trash!!!!) O and only cost the actual person about 5 grand to put it togeather IF that.... what a waist of time and resources.

Well it all comes down to personal preference. I dont personally like all of the choppers out there and people who pay over 20 Gs for a piece of mechanical yard art are crazy IMO. But someone is buying them and someone is building them-brother it aint gonna be me. There are some that do look pretty bad and can slam you to the back of the seat but then again do you want to drop 30 grand on something you will only ride 1/8 of the time?? not me, I need to ride as much as possible..and a little rain never stopped me from ridin.

You dont have the slightest clue at what you are looking at do you? That is not any run of the mill chopper. 3 days to build? only look good? only cost 5 grand to put together? I would recomend you do some research.

One, that bike got ridden more than yours ever will, and its a rigid frame. If you knew anything, you would know indian larry died on that bike. Larry was stunter of sorts, but he was doin it a long time before it was cool.

two, indian larry wasnt big into selling his bikes, i doubt you could buy that bike for 40 if you tried.

that bike is actually engineered to an extent beyond what you can comprehend. If you knew anything, you would know that indian larry earned his name by taking indian flat heads and re- engineering them to make hp and reliability most people thought was impossible. The motors he used in his last choppers were called oddball motors. his bikes used two different style HD heads, just becuase its not an easy thing to do. just for the sheer challenge. Making a 48 Pan head cooperate with 70's shovel head is not the easiest feat, if you ask me.

The last bike he built, the chain of mystery, had a frame composed of tig welded chain. That probally wasnt that easy either.

the only relevant statement you made was that you thought it looked like .

Well, larry considered motorcycle construction to be an art form, so thats what he used when he built one. Paul , the best leather smith in the nation, and his business partner, did all of the leather tooling. Robert pratke, did his paint that you liked. The motor has countless hours of metal engraving.

The only reason a bike like that goes together in a week, is becuase these guys know what they are doing. Not becuase it was easy, but becuase Larry was the best.



That bike took a of alot more than 5 grand to put together.


Indian Larry was the last great american hero. You can go to for talking trash for talkin about that sickle.
