I know everybody likes differant styles of custom bikes. It seems the up and out trend in the frame dimentions has dominated the "chopper" market for the past several years. Everybody tastes are differant. I am more of a pro street guy myself. I know some folks can't get enough flash, and to some, less is more. I'm not talking builders specificly but more of a style in general that you really get drawn to..

If this link works, this a bike built by cleveland motorcycles. To me personaly, even in its simplicity, this one of the coolest bikes I have seen (the pipes not so much)......
If I can ever latch onto another decent powerplant, I think this is the direction I am going to try to go in....
Its the old #7 bike in the gallery.....on the left second row down

@gree:

old #7 definitely grabs my attention. I love the looks of the rigid frames and "less is more".

It's a good thing everyone has different tastes.

If everyone were like me, we'd all be fighting to buy the latest Road Kings.

I've always been a softail fan, particularly springers. I've become partial to the Street Glides here recently though, OL had back surgery and it's time to find something more comfortable than a slammed 'tail...

Although I love my RK, RK's do not typically grab my attention as there are so many of them.

However, if I ever saw fellow members Aldean's bike, it woud:

I'm not a fan of custom bikes, I honestly say I would never own one , as far as grabbing my attention a Softail Heritage Springers with old colors,I would love to own one.

I can imagine owning/riding Old No. 7, b/c that is a style that piques me interest. There are some nice rides on that site, especially Jesse's Shovelhead upper left.

Less is more to my eye - minimalist rules; hence the Exile bikes have always appealed to me also. Like the women I covet...thick and clean.

The retrorod pipes on #7 are not that bad, I can see why you might want to change them.

Speaking of retrocool...that guy's deck shoes are so hep it hurts :whistle:

I like old iron so the Hotrod Shovelhead would be my pick from that bunch. Nice to look at but my back and kidneys can't take those rigid frames anymore. Seems like custom baggers are the latest craze. Maybe i'm just getting old but that's what grabs my attention mostly these days.

Baggers with front wheels so big they look stupid. It grabs my attention, I shake my head and laugh at them.

21s look pretty good. Anything bigger just looks odd. Kinda reminds me of the ole Big Wheel trike for kids.
