    @crosscountryla Wow, that pops. Very nice indeed. Could be my favorite so far. You know, it almost has a... Victory-ish quality to it. That is probably why I like it so much. What does the 126 mean? 126ci engine?

    ...the graphics sure help unite and flow the eye through the design lines (something Victory did so well)

    not so wild about the yellow, but maybe some tequila gold tho :0)

    Agree, deff dig the design & endless options with color combos. The 126 would be adequate

    Now see, I like that. I like it because it really doesn't look like an Indian in this configuration! But again, the clown car big wheel kinda kills it for me. Take that down to a 21" and I'm down. The paint work is sublime.

    That turbo’d 116 would be sufficient, it’s deff not an everyday bike with that huge front wheel but I appreciate it as “art”. Is a nice wall poster bike tho

    nice proportions and execution but I would have to take corners very carefully ... wonderful calendar material though.
    Very slick, very flashy ... and draws the eye through the bike. Suspension travel and comfort level (?).

    Comfort level... Not-so-much! Bikes like this are mostly show pieces anyway. They are rideable but not for any length of time!

    That is why when you see them up for resale they are very low mileage rides.

    @jedi-mcfly You know, I have never looked up a showpiece like this that was for sale. I guess I never bothered because I knew I couldn't afford it! But fer instance... What is your guess for this bike? There must be at least as much in mods as in the purchase price of the bike itself. Yikes.

    I am always looking at “bike porn” hehe. I have seen several show bikes for sale over the years. Sometimes online, some at bike/car shows ... my employer owned a bar and had 4 on display inside; the bar closed and he tried to sell them off and re-coup his bucks (they sit in his airplane hanger now collecting dust and the fuel turning to varnish).

    In the end they are worth what the nxt guy is willing to pay - custom bikes are a hard sell because the taste of them is so subjective - one guy may like a goddess with a sword riding a polar bear with lightning cracking the sky, then to sell the bike you got to find another dude who likes that hmmm stuff :0)

    How many OCC bikes did they make?
    They must have made quite a few - but I have never seen one rolling on the road catching bugs.

    To guess at the price for that bike delivered from the custom shop...
    close to $75k to build or better (no internals)

    10 years from now, with 10,000 miles on the O.D and some scratches $30K

    just a guess though

    Good guess I'd say. That is what I was thinkin'. It got me thinking and as it turns out, I did have one scrape with acquiring a unique piece. Man, I wish I could have made a move on this Cross Vision they had at Arlen Ness back in 2018.

    This bike looked even better in person. At the time I could not even believe that the price was at a level that I could even consider it. I just couldn't make the deal work. My loss for sure. But I get what you are saying!

    This guy started off wanting $90K for this custom V-Rod...

    ...kept seeing the price drop over the summer : the last time I saw it he was asking $40K
