This is a very poorly done and scary looking home built show chopper. The strange thing is there are actually a couple of people at my local bike coop that ride these around town. Strange thing is among the riders in this bike culture it is consider basicaly wrong to sell one of these or ride one you didn't build yourself. Also they are completely unsafe by normal peoples standards.

I ended up grabbing this just now for $40. Seller told me they had over 15 replies in the first 10 minutes but I could have it for 40. I think I ended up with it because I told them I was available now or whenever was convenient for them.

I kinda wonder if people don't have auto responders set up to be able to reply so quickly, though tons of ppl are looking on CL all the time..

Yeah, I have an auto responder set up. It's about the only way to snag a good deal around here.

yeah by the time people checked their autoresponders I had already bought the bike i prefer to do it manually and have gotten at least two good deals where the seller was overwhelmed with emails.
