What do you think of this chopper?

My friend worked on it and they are now trying to sell it. I usually do not like how choppers look (not a fan) But I kind of like this one. Like how the gas tank and frame were done. I am not sure how I feel about the paint.

Just sharing it.

What do you think of this chopper?

The price is fine. In fact I figured it would be more

I think I saw this at the o reilly auto show and color is way nicer in person. If I had 30k to drop on a bike I couldnt justify it being that bike. But I dont so I guess it doesnt really matter.

too much green. shame that such hi quality worksmanship turned into that.

Could've just gone with the standard black on chrome and actually sold the bike, but i believe this bike was built by a sportbike fan hence the kawasaki green, they just went a lil far with it.

Also, i wouldnt exactly call it rare. Its unique, sure, but to be rare people must have a intrinsic value or some like babe ruth cards or old star-wars action figures (which were mass produced but are no longer in existence)

As far as the price goes, you can get a Custom Harley 72 which looks way better (imo) for 1/3 the price but hey, theres always someone out there who "HAS" to be different. it will likely find a good home.

2 kinds of bikes in this world...
One is the kind made to ride. Whether it's sport, cruiser, offroad, etc.
The other is meant to be rolling art. Like Jesse or OCC build.

Art, in the case of bikes can be ridden but it doesn't have to be particularly good at going down the road. It only has to look good.

This contraption doesn't fit either category. It wasn't made to ride and it doesn't look good.

Therefor, it isn't a bike. That means it's an ugly, green...

thing.
