$100,000 Chopper???

Seen that DJ loaded these pics to the gallery... a $100,000 chopper?

What do you guys think? Is something like that worth that much?

I think I could get alot more things for that kind of cash!






Don't get me wrong it's pretty nice but...........

Maybe DJ can add more input to the pics!

There are a lot of choppers out there that cost that and more. All the ones from OCC and Jesse James and Texas Outlaw and Arlene Ness to name a few are all going to be 100k plus. And why you ask? Because they can get it. I personally would never do it, but some of the ingenuity that they put into the bikes is pretty amazing. I mean, most of these bikes are hand built, not on an assembly line like ours. Granted they wont match up in performance, but gice credit where credit is due.

BTW, I think that chopper is badarse.

I am not sure if it is worth $100,000 but it is nice. What I like about it is the 360 rear tire.

I thought those (OCC, Jesse James, etc) went for around 50K. I believe you though, totally. That's crazy but like you said, they can get it. More power to them. If that's your thing, that's your thing. I think a lot of them are cool but I'd never drop the coin on one.

Not really, Jetski...Look where the pegs are. It would be like riding a high speed Lazyboy

hehe

It does look slick, but I'd never own one. Unless I had all the other toys that I wanted and had a truckload of cash burning a hole in my pocket still.

100K for a bike that can't go around a corner. At least Jesse James and OCC's bike can turn. You'll probably only see this thing at shows.

why when you could be free from the torture.as for the bike,it's killer.it must have a air shock or something.if it's a rigid sitting that low then it's a waste of money.you couldn't ride it on the street.

I LIKE CHICKEN huck farly
