Am I right in just assuming that everything on that monstrosity is just bolted on to the stock swingarm? I wish I could see some more pics, 'cos that's what it looks like? Fcuk........... ;D

Kinda looks that way doesn't it Terry? But if you look close an squint, it might even still have the rear tire on it............and maybe what we are seeing is a dolly for a 5th wheel trailer! :o

 I think its a cool looking old time capsule since it says its not a recent build. Be nice if it had a better front brake. I remember a lot of budget choppers 'back in the day' being built with 350/450 twin engines and those things could be LOUD with straight pipes.

I know there are fans of choppers out there, but, I'm definitely not one.
I have motorcycles to ride them.   Choppers are usually pretty compromised with respect to handling, braking, and safety, for the sake of a look, a look I don't appreciate (again, that is MY opinion, I respect others may have different opinions).

I do respect the workmanship and artistry that goes into many chopper builds.   

I also appreciate a good cafe build a lot more, as they're usually very rideable machines, often better to ride than the base upon which they are built.

Sadly, just as with choppers, there are many badly executed cafe builds out there too.

OK, back to abominations:

OMG, WTF? Why? It's an art piece, right? What were you thinking? Have you ridden that? It's a joke, right?  These are some of the questions I would ask him. Talking about the chain frame thing. Ricky's Rocket rocks!

  I think some on here mistake the abomination thread for bikes I wouldnt like to own thread. Note, I did not say ride, because if you did..you might enjoy some of them.. (bet you never tried)

Lots of choppers out there that are ridden a lot.. more than some of our bikes..
 There is plenty of very high performance choppers, and plenty of low performance cafe bikes..
 What's the difference between a very low mileage GL and a chopper that gets ridden often ?
 I mean I don't see the sense of packing the GoldWing pork around all year to pick up prescriptions,  a few boxes of beer. Then doing a few  500 mile weekends and maybe one trip a year., or none. 
 I just don't get it .......I can do all that on a CB 750 or 500..
 Unless you pack a passenger most of the time, to me the big bike is a waste.
 Bikes often suit their owners, they reflect their personality, and their abilities.l if you want bland and boring, and can't build a decent custom bike  stick to the stock bikes,  plenty of them out there..

 The chain frame bike may have been inspired by a build from Indian Larry called "Chain of Mystery". Last bike he built before he died doing one of his famous stunts of standing on his chopper seat while riding. That one pictured is not quite up to his quality  ;)
