finally, a true "outlaw" motorcycyle...

came across this article about a real "outlaw" bike. of course they are calling themselves bighouse choppers. motto: bikes built with convictions. should have figured someone would come up with the bright idea of having inmates build choppers...

props to the dude with the ingenuity to put something like this together... they're charging $40K per bike, with a $15K licensing fee to start building. seems like a bit much to me, but then again, i'm not much into the new style choppers.

i've been wondering about the price tag. my first instinct is to think that's too much for a bike built by criminals. but should the cost really be driven by who builds the bike?? i realize that the builder of the bike will drive the cost of the bike somewhat. face it, people will pay more for a bike built by russell mitchell than the same bike built by someone like me. so, if they can sell a bike for $40K, why not?? just because they're criminals doesn't mean they shouldn't charge that price. so what the heck?? if someone will pay that much, go for it...

okay, that's it for now...
