Excellent ad.

Shame about the bike, though.

The pipe wrap makes it don't you think? The frame looks ok so you could go many ways with it.

When I saw the pipe wrap I just knew that Lefty was jonesen for that bike. Problem is he has that Duc basket case under his bed with the monsters who wont let him have it.. Can't get a pipe wrapped bike till he figures out how to get the basket case Duc sold.

Maybe the Yama guy will trade, he is a little odd.)

Pipe wrap...


At least it's better than the XS LoVel posted.

This is interesting, and it's only $3,800!

You see lots of these kind of things where some guy obviously has quite a few resources, tools, parts, garage space, etc... and obviously a lot of skills, but then uses all of that time and effort to create something like this. It makes you want to set up a time to see it just to meet the kind of guy who would build something like this.

Your answer is right in the ad - the kind of guy who uses a CB radio.

It looks functional, dependable and sturdy Irish. I reckon I'd be interested if it had a bulldozer blade fitted - maybe a ripper up the rear too.

Opinions, please:

Is $2,200 too high?
