I think it's cool he has done something different. He has only built 3 bikes as far as I can tell. I see and read stuff every day and think "WTF IS THAT!" but at the same time I know someone is making money off that thing I think WTF about. I bet this kid will do well for himself, he is working hard and has talent. He is young still, give him time.

I think Hummers/H2/H3s, 22 inch rims, fast and the furious civics with giant spoilers, and of course, spinners are a few of the dumbest things in the world but people spend a load of money on them and someone else is raking it in!

Not bad, but I like the one with the Busa motor. Not liking the price tag though:eh:

Thats is like the the 3rd bke he built but he said he customized the sportbikes for a while which amounts to adding chrome and custom paint and stuff like that. I think the guy will do well.
My brother built a custom hardtail in his spare time and flipped it for $20 G's with a 6 g profit... But it was an ugly POS. Someone out there is always buying something for serious money.

He contidicted himself so many times.

hes been into bikes since he was 3, but just learned how to work on bikes 3-5 years ago.

He claims gave him the idea, yet he says if he wasnt into motorcycles, who knows what trouble he would have gotten into (dont good religion beliving people stay out of trouble no matter what?)

He said the hayabusa engine was Fuel injected, not carbed.

Did I miss anything?

Not to stir the pot but...
I think those were some ugly POS's. I mean he took an otherwise sweet scoot and made it into an unrideable, poor handling, gaudy looking tragedy.
The seating postion is stupid, the huge rear tire would kill handling (that is if the frame doesn't drag the ground) and there is zero imagination in the paint work.
The reason many of us ride is the acceleration, the handling and the braking.
A scoot like that does none of those things. Then you get the privilige of paying huge money?
Pffft!

You'd have to be a poser.
