Not good... OCC must be over-booked. It is not a bumble bee it's a hornet--you may change the spelling to better fit OCC motives...

Aw, man...

I can sure think of some other more creative ways to have highlighted Lance's bicycle background and incorporate them into a Chopper design maybe a little more than that. I don't see much there that represents a bicycle connection. Maybe they could've done a theme incorporating elements of the time trial bike look or something along those lines. Those guys usually do a pretty clever job of making the strong theme connection in their choppers.

They've been too busy designing $20 garage stool/chair to sell at Pep-Boys, along with finding someone to manufacture their "OCC Sunglasses" to sell for $14.95 at the 7-11.

They discovered that there is more markup in buying cheap Chinese goods, marking them up and re-selling to suckers.

Disappointing

Definitely not their best work. I don't see any cycling tie-ins at all (other than spokes). They tend to hit about 50% inspired designs, the rest are Just Another Chopper.

I look forward to seeing the show to see the process they went through.

Yep, saw one this weekend at Target. Pretty lame.

Was this bike made for Lance at his request or was it made as a tribute to lance? I kind of like the bike and even though it does not have all the same theme cues that some of the other bikes have it is still pretty nice. Besides those wheels must have been a ***** to make.
And as far as them with the Pep Boy's thing--more power to them. They get to make their bikes ad pep bopys sells stuff with their picxture or endorsement and they make some easy cash. You'll notice though on the show all they use is Snap-On since they built their bike...

It is the closest tie-in with Armstrong's cycling. Think Giro.

Way too much yellow

yellow and clack are [email protected] colors for Lance and the TDF and all, but man thats way too much yellow on that bike. BTW, as was mentioned before, the tank is definitely designed with the limited edition Helmets one of which Lance wore made by Giro. It would've been cooler had they made a big yellow and black cruiser bike instead of a chopper. I am not giving choppers a bad name nor those artists with the rare skills to make one, but they are over-rated.

Like the show. Not a fan of their bikes. It just seems like all the bikes are the same style, with different wheels, colors and too much estra crap pasted on them just in the name of a "custom" bike.

I'm with ya there. I like the show..it is mildly entertaining, but not a big fan of the bikes. West coast choppers and many..many of the other custom builders do a better jog, but they are making money, so some people must love them eh. As for this bike, not a big fan......

Its ok for a bike I guess.
I would've sooner had a vehicle done up for me by Monster garage..perhaps a truck and trailor with a set of doubles built into it :p

I agree...if they had used a USPS TT helmet for the gas tank, and some tri spoke wheels, and also maybe made it alittle more aero if that is possible

the color skeme/ paint is off too IMO
