A stretched-frame, wide-tired, extended fork chopper. How timely. How unique.

Honda; The leader in being late to the scene.

I like it but if I were going for that look it would be more like:
Redneck Engineering Mutant Frame
Donor Speed III 2006-2008
PM Controls
Chubby Pull back Drags
PM wheels- 17in no bigger than a 200 rear
You could build the bike for less than $10k if you can paint it yourself.

A day late and a dollar short for Honda. Nothing like being late to the game in a dying fad.

I've got 5 cans a flat black spray paint and a half a dozen dusk masks.

Maybe it can be customized with a reduced rake, smaller rear tire, add a full size front fender, maybe a bigger gas tank. They could be on to something here with the right accessories!

If Honda could have gotten this out of committee about 10 years ago they would've had something.

I'm guessing the H-D Rocker didn't exactly fly out of the stores either.

How much is this thing?

Hmmm. I'll reserve judgment until I hear the price. The "fad" has been for high-priced custom bikes and I suspect the issue has been with the price, not the style. If Honda can price it along the lines of its other cruisers, I wouldn't count it out.
