So, after much looking, i decided that the standard cruisers are not for me; my friend's Fatboy is quite nice, but he has spent well over 40k to make that bike what it is. Since i have been taken by this sort of pre-war II German blacked-out fat-tracker, combined with the elegance of the Brough and Vincent, but want something modern, comfortable and rideable, i'm going to work with a local guy who can help me design and assemble what i have in my mind's eye. Think one of Chica's choppers, like the Ether, combined with various metals and metal finishes, and we'll see. Some of the work i have seen is just amazing, and i want this beast to look industrially elegant, in an almost brass-era meets ducati monster on steroids concept. I'll take some pictures as it develops. It should be fun, and far cheaper than building a car from scratch.
