I like Vinny.

Sr always seemed like an idiot with money.. Jr. wasn't far from it but had common business sense.. Sr. just blew his cash thinking the cash flow that building motor cycles was bringing at one time was going to last forever.   Except when it didn't and he had nearly nothing to fall back on..

Look no further than the insane amount of money he spent on OCC "Headquarters"...   The guy was always a primadonna..

The problem with OCC is they weren't making money off their bikes.. They made money off TV.. In the custom chopper world their stupid bikes were looked at as just that.. Stupid novelty bikes made for TV.  Once TV went away so did 95% of the cash flow... Building their own motors would have done nothing.  They made money off TV fights and not bikes.

I think the older dude might not be that sophisticated about s lot of things. I'm trying to be nice. But I don't think very much of the custom market is made up of dudes casting their own motors. Modifying, sure. There's just plenty of reasons for knocking their product if you like, that's just not one of the best ones in my opinion.

At least Mythbusters got Discovery to knock it off with the manufactured drama/arguing for their series.  American Choppers seemed to be about 85% people yelling at each other.

They're the Pimp My Ride of motorcycles- weld a bunch of shiat to a frame and paint it.

They built the same bike pretty much every time, they just tacked on various doo dads and gee gaws to fit the "theme" of the bike. And Sr was always crowing about how great they rode and handled. Gimme a break, those things ride and handle like shiat.

Jr did have some decent design ideas, and Vinny was the smartest one. Sr was just an asshole. Poor Mikey was just a drug addict.

I hated all the drama and tight build schedules, though most of that was just scripted "reality." I quit watching when Jr and Sr split. Just expanded drama.

I always felt Jesse James had a much better sense of style, but Christ, what an asshole.

I don't know anything about motorcycles, but could they ever use effective front shocks when their front fork was always at an extreme angle? And doesn't that angle create a potential structural weakness where it anchors to the bike?

This looks like just about every bike they ever made. It's way too long and just looks clumsy and uncomfortable.

You'd be correct. That extended rake makes the shocks much less effective. Bikes like that handle poorly and ride like crap. As for the neck, that just gets beefed up because of the extra leverage caused by longer forks.

Bikes like that do ok on straight roads, but can't corner for shiat and have a much wider turning radius. It's what we call a "Bar Hopper". You ride it to the bar, show it off, ride to the next bar down the street.

It's impractical. It just looks cool

I keep staring at this because it seems so... wrong. Why is the rear tire so wide? Why does the rear fender only cover 30% of said tire? Does the seat have a back? What happens when this thing catches a little bit of air? Does the front buckle and the bike flip forward? When that happens does the wheel just obliterate the back of your head/neck/torso?

Good Lord that thing looks unsafe and not in a fun way.

Wow. It's pretty bad when someone can start a post with "I know nothing about motorcycles" and somehow correctly diagnose horrible problems in a bike designed by professionals.

it's basically a concept car. One that is all for show. No one buying a bike like that would ever actually ride it
 
2018-03-01 11:54:50 PM  
As said above, their bikes were a joke, bolt on pieces with some paint (which they didn't even do in house).

Every "show" in this category is the same.  "We're coming in over budget!"  "We're running out of time!!"  "I'm going to yell at you to create drama!"   It's the same thing for building bikes, overhauling cars, rebuilding or flipping a house, saving a bar or restaurant, etc...

The formula has been done to death and needs to end.

CSB; A friend who works in Reality TV loathes the "car shows" because tho they're popular, the production costs are paying tons for overhead on something that doesn't have dramatic potential @ all; actual pro vintage vehicle restorers putting the shiat together. Tig welding ain't cheap. And if you stop to argue with the hotchick on the front desk or the bald angry boss that puts you behind delivering the custom Operation Iraqi Freedom Bobber for the VFW fundraiser or whatever. So all that stuff is either crammed into doofy time-lapse or edited out altogeher.

Would the purchasers of these bikes be the sort to never ride any motorcycles?

Also, I definitely get your point. But with concept cars generally give you a sense of "Wow that looks fast!" or "That beast can climb anything!" These bikes inspire thoughts like "This thing will murder the hell out of me."

Yes it is, but looking cool is apparently more important that practicality for the folks attracted to these things. I live in Florida, where year 'round riding is a given. The vast majority of people ride more mainstream bikes. You don't really see that many of these type on the road, for the very reasons you observed. Bikes like that are for attention whores. "Look at me, I have a custom I spent $50,000 on!"

Great, but my 40 year old mostly stock (save for a big after market motor and 5 speed trans) will eat it in every category.

Eh, whatever. It's not my thing, but some folks like it.

Yeah, fall into money and think "Now I'm going to live like a KING!".  Well some day the ride ends, and you can't eat memories of living like a King back in the good old days when you're old and poor.

i actually like that graveyard show and the fantom works show. i am not interested in the drama but the way they restore more than modify really is intriguing to me.
 
2018-03-02 07:40:08 AM  
When I had a dvr and this show was gaining speed they would show more fabrication and bikes would take several episodes to complete. I would fast forward past all the talking heads and yelling and do about 3 episodes in the time of 1. There was some decent tv in there of you knew where to look.

My favorite are the "I've never ridden a motorcycle" purchasers of these pieces of rolling sh*t.  Challenging enough to learn to ride safely on a decent motorcycle, put a first time rider with more money than sense on one of these abominations with "eh, I think it'll fit, weld that here" suspension, nonexistent brakes, and a rake and trail that stretches the wheelbase to 23 feet and you're guaranteeing an injury or worse
