Todd is suppose to be a dealer for them.
But Todd doesn't answer emails. Good luck in getting anything from him.

HEY!!! HEY!!!! HEY!!!!! HEY!!!!!!

Now how do you expect someone to build a custom bike with all these bolt on pieces parts? Don't you know that unless you spend $10,000 and 500 hours on the trial and error method you simply do not have a "REAL" custom? What are you guys a bunch jerks that want to spend your time actually RIDING instead of spending countless hours trying to come up with that one truly unique (which will be duplicated in short order once you show it to a few people) piece to so that you have "REAL" custom bike?



Great thread! Have visited a few of these sites and seen some interesting things. Good to have this list in one place. Thanks!!!!

"Unique" it's pretty much a Dead Horse term these days..

When every Over The Counter ass Clown can buy all the same parts.. having the same look these
days as the rest of the cookie cutters riding around.. but hey thats "Unique"..

Great thread I'll be out riding!!
