I was at a bike night with the wife once and there were these two Harley guys and they were going through the list of extra chrome and how much each piece cost. We were laughing our off. One of the guy's bikes had more than what my bike cost just on bolt on bullshit.

Not hard to do on Harley, especially buying their stuff at their shop. The aftermarket is a little better, barely, when you buy online.

Harley engine, Harley Transmission, Harley wiring AND the ad says it can be serviced at any Harley dealership.
I think they are using aftermarket frames, bolting on some and putting an ugly paint paint job on them.
