Nice show piece; I'd freak-out on the cable steering and the forward exiting exhaust for any "real" riding.

Looks about as agile as a tank. But it is bad-ass.

That one really is a piece of art. Probably about as controlable as a m-2 from the hip, but beautiful still the same. Just goes to showthat for all Sr.'s big talk, Jr. really did make OCC what it is (was). Even Rick is starting to point out that the OCC bikes just aren't the way they used to be.

I know I shouldn't watch the show, but I just can't help it, after all, that show is what got me interested in working on bikes when I was a teenager.

1985 LTD.... 121,000 miles and counting

It wasn't too bad a show the first season when they showed more of the work on the bikes and a lot less drama. The hollering and yelling and all that crap finally put me off. I haven't seen the show since the first year. It seemed like they were more bike decorators rather than builders since they bought so much stuff ready made.

I've seen a few of their "tribute" bikes up close, and I sure would not ride most of the poorly built crap that they build. They look good on TV, but up close, you can see how poorly built they are. I was especially disapointed in the one for the Army,I would had been scared that it would fall apart going around the block. Like most, after the 1st year,I pretty much quit watching it.
