Yeah that struck me as weird too. It makes me wonder if it may be more a 'clothes horse' display rather than a bike built to someone's request?

ie. let's make a bike as a display of as many of the range of after-market accessories we supply so potential customers can see them in place. May explain why the itemised price list is next to the bike perhaps.

You could buy two new T00's and two new Thruxtons. The possibilities are vast.

You could even buy a Harley and a trailer to haul it around in, so you wouldn't have to ride it.

For $40,000, you could buy a Rocket 3 Touring, a Thunderbird, and a T110 and have some left over for a new helmet.

I know the guy that owns that bike.That movie was made at a bike show.The guy that owns it wasnt really wanting to sell it.But do this set down and add up every penny you put into mods on your bike and you will be shocked at what your bike has cost you if you had it very long and did much to it.The bike in the movie has all of the best that money can buy on it.It was a labor of love for the guy that owns the bike.If you like the bike or not dont try to hang with him leaveing a stop light or he will leave you.By the way thats 1087#3 setting between his legs.He works for southbay /tpusa.
There are many people with money that have lots of big buck machines but there are only a few 1087 bonnies with over 100 hp world wide thats one of them.

Someone may want to make their Bonneville look more like this:

I am sorry, I love Bonnevilles but the rider is really lovely in that picture.

I love custom bikes, but I don't see it here? Even my Screamin Eagle HD wasn't anywhere near that price and that's 110 cubes.
