I just don't get it

I guess this is why this site isn't a "chopper" forum.

Front wheel looks like *****!! However, I do like the rear wheel, pretty innovative although I've seen it before.

Shanman, next time you're back in Phoenix try to check out Hacienda Motors (choppers?) in Scottsdale off of Frank Lloyd Wright. All choppers, but a lot of customs. You might like seeing them in person, there's some serious bikes there.

Hey, I think they're cool to look at. I like watchin' like OCC and West Coast Choppers on the Discovery channel. I think they are cool but not practical for me. I do like the no rear wheel hub though. Looks like one of those "It's for show, not for go things", much like many of the OCC "theme bikes".

Anyone know how you can turn an R6 into having like an MV Agusta rear? Like only having a one connection at the swingarm?

Ok, can someone explain to me how that bike moves? Where is the chain, belt, whatever?? What the hell turns the rear wheel and how is it attached to the bike??

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...
