Its rideable, but this was a showbike build-off anyhow... If you watched the episodes, both bikes were ridden. Plus I tend to think we look at "rideable" in a different light than "that crowd" When you own a chopper, its not about how it handles, brakes, or performs.... its about style and looks... plain and simple.

We live behind the concept if we're gonna own a bike, we are going to try to ride it every now and then. As it's an auction, there's a chance someone might on occasion put it to some use, rather than just stick it in a building to show off.

I rarely watch the show, so have no idea what cadillac 'wanted' etc.. so I can only go based on some general ideas. :-)

you are making a rather large assumption and speaking for a lot of people. YOU do not speak for ME. IF I were to spend a 100k on one of those bikes, I would only ride it in parades and trailer it to shows. so sorry. your view is only your own.

Unwad the panties, I think it should be relatively obvious that I was trying to write/type as in generalities, and explain where I was coming from in reply to your question in the same post.

I like the undertail of Seniors bike a lot and the 'bobber'/chopper style. Overall though LOW always wins...Juniors bike wins for bags + Toys R Us Fenders

Yeah I watched both episodes back to back Monday night...when he started taking apart the Caddilac, I was like For a moment, when he was talking about the hood, I thought he was going to take that out too. I'm surprised they didn't work in a navigation/speedo or the headlights somehow. The reason I say Toys R Us Fenders is because they look like they came off of a Caddilac toy car.

Definently 'interesting' and will serve Caddilac more than Senior's bike. Senior's undertail was a really nice touch though, and Senior's bike had more 'flow' between the 2.

at first i thought i liked sr's more b/c of the 'sporty' 'bobber' feel to it, but on second thought the profile of that tail is pretty bad. the flow on jr's is much better esp when its on the ground, but the tail from the back perspective is still a bit lacking for me.

yea, though a few changes to that bike would make it completely ridable for me.

pretty much change the rear and debadge the caddy ... and I am ready to rock the out of it.


But I sure as wouldnt turn it down... it is pretty nice looking
