Is that the NAPA bike they are trying to make? Saw the other day they were doing a NAPA drag bike, or should i say assembling it. Someone sent them a "kit" and they got help putting it together. They should stick to choppers because theres alot of people that know alot more about setting up bikes than they do. This isnt OCC bashing, but if napa wanted a drag race bike, they could do just as good a job themselves.

gadsoms a small guy but not real short or light..sort of regular 5' 10/11" 170 (maybe a little lighter since i really never seen official weight/height specs on him) but he looks normal size when next to other people..

you might be thinking of the older great dragracer "peewee gleason" he was 5 foot nothing...

napa's a big sponser on their show, so i guess thats why their building the dragbike and not a "theme bike"

just thinking, if OCC buids all these bikes for clients, how do they still have them all for shows or sitting around the shop?

I always liked the show but it got annoying because Paul Sr. reminds me of my dad.
Always on my case.

I`ve been looking forward to seeing the Drag bike though, but I thought it looked too chopperish. But it is called orange county choppers.
Thanks for letting me know when it is guys.
Thanks.

I think they still have the POW, Christmas, Fireman, Black Widow, and Mikey's bikes. The clients got the Caterpillar, Golfer (Davis), Welder, Snap-on, Lance Armstrong, Jay Leno, and Lincoln bikes. And there are others I've missed. The guys you don't see often, like Christian and Cody, are building customer's bikes.

And I wish I could have built bikes with my dad. He wanted me to build skyscrapers with him, but that job only lasted one day. Those iron-workers on the high steel are crazy.

"make" is a strong word. "Assemble" is better.
