Was the design of this thing outsourced to India??
It looks like one of those Royal Enfields more than anything else -

Now case in point -

Note the ridiculous sissy bar
Note the tail lite not being in -line
Note the gas tank not being in-line
When you sit on that seat it's gonna be slanted back

Thats how the old bikes used to be, slanted back.

Everything leaned back.

OK - so it is obvious that your bike has better lines than OCC bike.
What I am saying is the seat will be slanted DOWN and you will slide off.
Yours aint like that.

Here a novel idea. Instead of spending $30,000 on a goofy looking bike that will depreciate quicker than Florida real estate, take $11,999 and go buy yourself a new Dyna superglide. How the hell can you go wrong? Hell for that price you could buy one black one and one silver one and still have enough left for a thousand OCC t shirts.

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.
Touche Feeling of grandeur,air of superiority,wow. Like I said before Rhode,I like your bike but man,your ego is too big for Club Chopper. Your statements continually show how much you feel that you are better than most people in the world. it also seems as if you only will hear or read or understand what you want to hear,read or understand.
And Rastoy,LOL,I hear you

I wasn't talking about Rick. He has given me some shit about OCC in the past. But it wasn't personal. The thing about Rick is he really tries to cut through the BS-doesn't always succeed but hey,he tries. And he does keep an open mind about whatever.

Personally,I like it,of course it is hard for me to find a bike I don't like. This bike rides and handles very well. It does have a certain style to it and no not from India. LOL Don't know where that came from,maybe it is a racist thing-I don't know.
Anyway,plenty of power for the weight,comes in different configurations and colors. Not set in stone as to what you can order. The price has come down a bit-note to self,need to get Thomas to update. I really like this bike with a touch of rake in it. The point is that even though it is a limited edition production bike,a buyer can change it up to suit them as they are still built one at a time and not on an assembly line. As far as looks,like anything else it is personal preference.

you cant seriously think wcc parts are everywhere all because of sale pricing!! you mean to tell me that every person in the wcc build section of this site just happened across a sale and bought simply for price? if price were the only selling point, everyone would be running $60 drag pipes.

my point is, people like the look of wcc bikes and parts and bought those parts when they were expensive and when they went on sale. take a look at chopper of the year for '06 and '07...both list wcc parts. ones a cfl. jj and wcc have influence...and sales from bikes and parts.

and professional builders use his parts too. indian larry, for example. did you get a chance to see trevelines(sp) cfl "el jefe?" beautiful bike...with wcc frame.

you can do just about anything and be labeled an artist. to be labeled a bike builder you have to build bikes that someone rides. assembling others parts and welding shit to it isnt bike building...its art, i guess. to be an influence to the motorcycle industry, something you have done should be seen in others work. being on tv and no one using any of your "style" doesnt qualify as influence. to be on the builder/sales side of the industry, you have to sell bikes and/or parts that are used on something that is ridden. every builder sells their bikes and the parts from those bikes...indian larry, chica, jesse james, billy lane, cole foster, martin bros, roland sands, etc. thousands of builders and they all sell parts that are a representation of what they build. if your not making money off of either of those, your not on the builder side of this industry. an artistic version of a motorcycle that sits in a corporate lobby isnt a bike anymore, its just art.

its funny to me that "influence" has come up so many times yet no one can show any validity to this statement. "they dont sell parts!!!" my point exactly. the guy from the morning soap operas probably doesnt do parts either...he gets paid for scripted drama, too.


and its not personal occparts. you seem like a good guy, i just disagree with you on anything related to occ. my taste isnt better than yours or anyone elses...well maybe some, haha.
