Firstly Lobo I'm glad to hear that you weren’t seriously injured in your crash, sorry about the bike being toast. Secondly you are VERY mistaken, ALL 04 and 05 and some 06 Venom, Sled, and Devils Advocate choppers and prostreets are in the recall! In total there are 1152 bikes in the recall for the afore mention years and models. My bet is that most of the one's being sold have NOT had the recall done and you can't get the recall done now as Big Bear Choppers is out of business unless you’re willing to pay for it out of pocket yourself. And Golfish is not correct in that there have been several cases where when the recall was performed the welds were found to be bad. In one case Scottm had his welds x-rayed on his Venom prostreet and they told him NOT to ride his bike home as the welds were that bad! The fact that Big Bear Choppers is now out of business also lowers the over worth of a used one and I would never trust the welds on the rest of the bike even after having the recall done. If I were you I'd be looking for something other than a used Big Bear Chopper.
