    OK, so you clicked on this thinking "Some Dumbass has posted in the wrong section" but no, it is a Repsol Honda and it is a Thumper!

    It's not mine - seen at the NEC Bike Show, Birmingham UK.

    :thumb What he said

    On the flip side...that may be the perfect chopper: it's loud, blingified, "unique" :puke1, and caters to the fashion of the moment.

    All it needs is some fingerless gloves and a set of chaps w/o ass coverage. :lol3

    That's just wrong. On so many levels. :loco

    I am so glad there's only one. BUT - it's one too many... :D

    A "drag chopper" with a single cylinder, pizza cutter tires, and wheelie bars? Not only does that thing suck because it's a chopper it also sucks as far as chopper standards are concerned.

    An XR650 might make a decent cafe bike, or flat tracker rep, or even a bobber, but not a chopper. Choppers are supposed to have big powerful motors and fat rear tires, that thing is just stupid. It's supposed to represent a drag bike, nobody is drag racing single cylinders in a raked out chassis.

    I can just hear the idiot talking about it too. "No one has ever built a chopper out of an dirt bike before, this will be so unique!" I hate that mentality. Unique isn't always better. You could look really unique standing up in a wedding wearing a track suit but more so you'd look like an asshole.

    I think this describes the situation pretty well.
