With all the "dragonnage", you would think they were fantasizing about a Japanese bike. Too much over-active-imagination for me.

So sad that he's put over $20K into it and still may not even get $6K for it. Hope those prizes came with prize money to take some of the sting out of it.

That one's a little wild, but I'll give the owner cudo's for using their imagination. I'm not a big fan of dragons, but it might be one of the coolest looking little sportsters I've seen. That's one thing about custom jobs, sometimes they are "out there" but I'd rather see that than the normal looking stuff that comes out of the OCC.

I am with you on this one Fergy, thats one bitchen looking custom theme bike. A ton on thought and planning went into that then all the fabrication they put into it. Helluva finished job and a very creative mind built that bike. Kudo's to them. My only complaint is "Why an 883"?


Peace

$20K into the bike and it's still got crappy tires. Spend the $$ on some Avons or Metzelers.

I'm not a big fan. The idea to make a bike into one long dragon body with the front arms/claws as the front fender, the tank as the head, and the rear fender as the wings/back of the dragon is a great idea. This is just a little over the top for my taste. Nice pipes though...

hmm

It kinda makes me wonder if the thing ever gets ridden. It reminds me of the kind of mentality where people buy electric guitars for how they look, then hang them on the wall and never play them. I can understand functional improvements, and I can appreciate fantasy art, but I don't see anything functional there (though I'm no expert), and it seems like a waste of effort, especially since they're turning around and selling it.

It looks like, and is basically being advertised as a show bike. They may be wanting something a little more practical to ride, 'cause in my opinion, that bike isn't!

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
