    That's one WILD mofo!!! That's what I'm talking about. A true custom and not one of these "custom" bikes with frames from the same manufacturers, brakes from the same manufacturers, tanks from the same manufacturers, you guys know what I'm talking about.

    I like the first bike...

    I'm not a big fan of Jesse Rooke after seeing his attitude and work ethic in the episode of "Build or Bust" in which he was featured. I am surprised to see him venture away from the Schwinn style that he's overdone for so long.

    I don't care much for Jesse Rooke either but you gotta admit that a KTM liter V-twin powered broad track chopper is a damn original idea, not to mention that the thing actually looks good.

    That first bike is really out there. No brakes. It looks like the Duct tape in the one picture is covering where the chain hits. I don't think the front would handle so well because of where the pivot point is (behind the axle centerline, where a normal fork pivots in front of the axle centerline but the trail point is behind the axle) I'll bet it's "Floppy", but it is one of the most original design I've ever seen. I love the skinny tires (hate 300mm tires!) white no less, plus the rear's larger than the front. It deserved to win. And thats a VERY "Von Dutch" Flying Eyeball Headlight there.

    ETA: Jesse Rook, Just say in your best Saturday Night Live Voice, while doing a split or Ballet move and spreading your arms, "Superstar" What a dick.

    Rooke isn't the only chopper dude with the 'tude. I think that it comes with the territory, if ya know what I mean. Who would want to buy a chopper from Captain Kangaroo or Mister Roger? It's all about bein' an outlaw, dude.:rofl:
