I like the primary cover also. I started a thread a while back on the CFL II and there was quite a debate over this frame. I must say I still like it.

I do like JJ style of bikes and I put him at the top of my favorite builders. I can only imagine that one would get tired of building the same CFL or Dominator day after day. Yes it has made him a rich man, but if I were in his shoes I would want to build something different once in a while. What's the point of having an amazing shop full of every tool you could wish for if you don't step out of your comfort zone and build something different. Probably the point of your thread....right Frank?

Yeah, I realize that, but still I think it would be nice to have your shop fabricate something a little different to show variety and the shop's skills.

JDOT, it is the point of this thread.

WCC builds a lot of different versions of the CFL, 2up, 4up, 6up, single down tube, 140 tire, 200 tire, 250 tire, to name a few.

They build El Diablo softtails, and rigids with all the above changes, too.

They build the Dominators, which I compare to a fat tire, drag bike, style of frame,...with a pro street vibe more than a chopper. But that's just my opinion. It has such a dropped down stance and a rear frame section that look as though it could handle any power plant you could come up with.

But I have seen the Dominator with a ton of up stretch, with the classic "chopper" stance.

But people with limited exposure to WCC bikes,....who only see the really popular or "famous" bikes think that's all they do.

I'm just trying to show a little of everything they do.

This next bike was discussed quite a bit before on this site. Some people liked it, some hated it. The thing you have to remember is Jesse built this for himself, to ride to Sturgis in 2007, so it "wasn't" supposed to appeal to the masses in the first place....But you'll see some fine metal work in the finished product.

I believe, by the look of the rear fender, this is a way, way, way "before" picture. I'm not sure though.

This is during mock up, obviously. If it's the same bike, it's got a lot of changes,..and if not,..oh well.
