Wow....I could go for this

I don't take part in much of the motorcycle discussion these days, but I could really go for something like this.

From a company called DP Customs. Knew nothing about them until I came across a photo of this bike for a battery FB page, but they have some interesting things. Nothing appears to be ground breaking really, but I am a big fan of their look on some of the builds. This being #1 for me.

I was cruising around yesterday and pulled into a neighborhood to bust a u-turn. I noticed a garage door wide open and a bike very similar to that one sitting in the garage. It looked cool as and I almost stopped and knocked on the guys door, lol.

Wonder how long that battery box is going to last? Especially since it's a rigid frame.

short exhaust + chain drive + white frame = one helluva headache. Not to even approach the ergonomics.

would be a neat "show piece" though if you were into that.

It would have to be a show bike, or short cruise bike. Not something I would elect to go ride the forest or go across the state on that's for sure.

I think it's sick minus the rear wheel.

Might have gone with a black spoke'd wheel instead.

Look close. That's just the standard 19" mag with solid covers bolted on.

The biggest problem I see on this bike are the straight pipes. The extraneous noise those things make without any other merit other than off everyone is just not needed.

Its bikes like this one that give all bikers a bad name and get us banned from localities.
