I always like to see people trying.

The Lock Stock appears to strive to be the world's slowest drag bike. I find it the least appealing, and leaning toward ludicrous.

The Rohini has potential, but I think it suffers from the decidedly Ducati type bodywork, which I  like, but at the same time I feel is too generic from the fiberglass catalog. The little mini headlight clashes with the retro style,  IMO. This one leans most towards my preferred style, out of the three bikes shown.

The last one is another stripper/bobber, on which  someone apparently  attached a piece of fender where the headlight should be. It's okay in many respects, but I think the world has seen an oversupply of this kind of thing.

I like the photos of the factory chrome Interceptor better than any of these.

There was a magazine enclosed with my latest Hitchcocks order and this machine is featured in it.
Its far from standard - bored & stroked to 865cc, different cams, nitrous injection etc.etc..

Like Beadazzled Lederhosen or Elaborately-Costumed Yorkshire Terriers, or maybe Yorkshire Terriers in Elaborately Beadazzled Lederhosen, such folkarty over-the-top customs aren't really MY thing, but still, you've kinda got to admire the skill and effort.  At least they're not molesting some perfectly fine old classic in limited and dwindling supply to get their Baroque on, right? Have at it, I say.

I don't think a customiser is doing his job properly if they make a bike look worse than the stock version. Those three have no Cool Factor.

The most preferable to me is the Yorkie Punker.  ;) At least he didn't take something traditional and totally f#ck it up.

On the bright side, at least these "Customizers" aren't procreating with Iron Barrels.
