    Default Detroit Choppers 26" Street Glide

    Found this... um... bike at Biker Bob's.

    Owner had it modified at Detroit Choppers, and wanted BB to dyno it. However, it won't fit their dyno.

    26" front wheel
    raked trees
    cut & raked neck (frame)
    Fiberglass front fender that was glassed crooked and is flimsy as hell and rubbing the tire.
    speaker lids of some kind on saddlebags that were horribly done, the bottom edges were rough as hell.
    The paint was rough, because DC doesn't have a paint booth so I'm thinking over-spray.
    Diamond cut heads
    Ness adjustable apes
    Lots of paint work
    Was a whole frame up rebuild.








    What do you guys think?

    My thoughts on it....
    I would have done the bike in black
    I never really been one for yellow and white bikes....what kind of motor does it have in it?

    I don't think I've felt this ill to my stomach since the time I chugged a full cup of jager + cotton candy vodka on a bet. By the way, I don't recommend it, even if 50$ is ridding on it.


    Matte yellow and black would be better choice for a CAT inspired bike.

    As for the bike, I'll refer to the quote in Gas' sig.. "Why pay somebody else to fuck up your bike?"
    "Too smart for the low brows, too crude for the highbrows."
    "Malo periculosum libertatem quam quietum servitium."
    "I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery."

    I never really liked the huge front tire thing, its a fad that has taken way too long to run its course IMHO. Never been much for yellow either.

    I think the RGs so better with the big front wheels. But that being said I think it has allot to do with the front fenders too. I prefer the big fenders that look stock, with the straight bottom edges.
