Default 2004 custom-built chopper for sale.

MAKE ME AN OFFER

The bike was bought fully assembled from RC Components out of Kentucky, with their parts, in 2004.

Custom paint by Clay, with House of Colors paints: cobalt candy blue w/ orange flamework on the tank and rear fender.

100 cubic inch Rev Tech engine, and 5-speed Rev Tech transmission.

250mm rear tire. Mirrors. Directionals. No guages, but is street-legal.

Bike has a rigid frame; measures about 9 feet in length, and is loud as *#@!

It's been ridden less than 500 miles, has been well-cared for and stored in a shed, protected from the elements.

Why did you spend about 30 to 40 grand on a bike and only ride it 500 miles in 4 years? Why is this always the case with these custom choppers?

Because they're so practical to ride!

Few more years once the fad completely dies, you wont be able to give these things away. Good luck, Custom Choppers are now the SUV (in terms of demand, GM is offering $7k under msrp and $1k in free gas) of the motorcycle world.

Custom choppers are all over CraigsList. They are still asking in the range of 30-35k, but they don't seem to be selling. Several have been up for months.

Ebay has a bunch, also. But I am actually seeing some with a "Buy Now" in the 17-20k range.

While others still think 80 grand is a fair price...

You can always blow 300k on one of these gems :

This'll never sell, 12'rs right. Course if you're in the market for a new Escalade or Navigator now's the time....a lot more usefull than a shop built chopper anyway.

You wanna talk about mothers?

Yo mamma is so fat, I once poked her in the leg and she leaked gravy!

Hmmm...assumptions abound.

I'm not a guy with a girl's name - I am a girl. Well, woman actually.

Also I wasn't stupid enough to buy this thing, my ex-husband was, and this is the crap end of the stick I got left with in the divorce.

I hate this bike. I'd take less than 10 grand to get it off my hnands.

So, thanks for the 'encouraging' input.

Sorry to hear about the divorce, and don't worry about the clods in here. They are rough but harmless.

Good luck selling that thing, though. It's a terrible market for bikes like that now.
