I now understand where you're coming from. If you ever see anything you like on any of my bikes, let me know so I can change it.
Where shoud I start, the seat, the 48" wide handlebars?

I said most people don't have a clue and are just followers. Why try to spin every word I say? You're not going to win a prize. Just put on your OCC jammies and get in bed. It's past your bedtime.

No spin, your words.

I guess you missed the episode where they just designed an affordable bike. But I guess you would already know that.

I didn't see any statements in this thread regarding the way their bikes ride. I did however see a couple of episodes where Sr. was asking Jr. whether or not he figured the rake and trail, and Jr's reply was something like, don't worry about it, it will be OK.

I didn't ask you how much money you made, I asked you how many OCC bikes you sold. The point being made was their influence on the industry not being because of the amount of bikes they built or sold. But I'll guess it's not that many.

I thought his open hub rear wheels were pretty cool. Not too many builders doing that. Hard to ride (and fix) I would guess though.

From my understanding he didnt build it, someone built it befor him.

He builds bikes for rich people, used to sell parts priced for rich people(Before and after the sale) he goes on any TV show that asks and hes married to one the most successful actresses in the country and im suppossed to buy into the act that he can relate to what i go thru on a daily basis. Bullshit! Congrats on becoming a wealthy man but dont insult me by acting like your not, That part I dont like
Pretty much sums it up........what say you Frank???

Big name bikes carry big money Arlen Ness 46/48K for a production Streamliner,
Eddie Trotta bikes 40 to 60 K and anyone else that's been widely public in the media.
JJ got more national fame from Monster Garage than Motorcycle Mania and if you watched it (monster Garage) He could be very arrogant at times.
JJ wants a tank or a set of pipes, he goes to hamming,rolling and welding.
Sr wants a tank or set of pipes, He tells Rick to make it (big difference in thought and skills) I don't see where JJ is trying to make himself look blue collar. He's a rich dude who every now and then has a sale so blue collar people can afford his parts.

It then gets to the point where it is no longer fun. Remember Gypsy? I could name off a bunch of guys who are no longer on here because it was no longer fun for them after getting trashed by a few players. It is a shame as there is a wealth of information on here by a great many people who are no longer here.
Pretty much sums it up........what say you Rick???
