This Diablo Rigid was featured in the 2000 WCC Catalog. Does anyone know who the painter was or what colors were used?

This thread is going to go on for a long time.

My main reason for starting it was because often, when speaking to someone about WCC, I got the impression many people thought Jesse built a few bikes, got lucky with a TV gig, and has faded away as fast as he became popular.

But not only was WCC in business well before the Discovery channel put them out there, it also has been growing each year "after" the TV action stopped.

Everyone knows the Camel bikes from Motorcycle Mania 1. Everyone knows the Sturgis Special from Mania 2, and the copper bike from Mania 3.

But with the exception of a few others well known bikes, a lot of people don't have a clue how many different types of bikes, never mind how many all together, have come out of Long Beach.

Lou, at that time, I believe WCC was using Damon's.

OK,....so in the late 90s or early 2000s, Jesse had a deal with a company called "Pure Steel". He built bikes for them, and sold them under the Pure Steel banner. This is one,...a black, El Diablo softtail.

That's cool that they are going to do builds with a different assortment of engines in them.

But they never kept away from older engines anyway.

It just looks like they may be doing more "in-house" engine building, than before.

Since we mentioned alternative engine choices, here's an early WCC built CFL, with a Shovel head power plant.

yeah, you know im a shovel freak! but i read an article, i think cycle source. where Jesse all but dogged the shovel power plant. I know he's used to dem S&S monsters, but the bike in the article was damn nice. By the looks of this "want ad" posted earlier, WCC may be going into some old iron. I hope so. Yeah Frank your avitar is freakin me out man !

I love the look of a Shovel. A friend of mine at work has a cool raked out shovel power HD.

Here's a few more pics.
