I love building plastic models. Working on a B25 and a duplicate of the Hummer I drove in Desert Storm right now. I'm also a HUGE fan of American Chopper. Got the racing Jacket for Xmas. I'll have the 1/10 models on display at home. I'll get the 1/18th scales to have on my desk at work (with a death threat posted for anyone that touches 'em!!)

The cool part is, since they're made by ERTL, should be able to get 'em at the local toy stores or WalMart...

Harley'* and Harley cloned engine bikes suck, They are the slowest thing known to man. Honda spree scooters are faster than most Harley'*.
A factory stock 883 makes 43 horsepower a 1200 makes 63 hp. Most modded bikes don't make over 100 horsepower unless they have to be rebuilt every 1500 miles.
My Honda VTR1000 is putting down 118 dyno'd rwhp from 996cubic centimeters of v-twin power. A Suzuki Hayabusa makes over 160 hp straight off the showroom floor for less than $11,000 bucks.
I found it really funny when those American chopper idiots went to daytona bike week and a stock Honda 600 cc bike was being dyno'd the Chopper guys were too scared to put there modded custom orange piece of sh*t on the dyno for fear of it was making less power.

SLOW and loud bikes never impressed me.

I agree. But I'm not a bike rider!

I've seen too much go wrong with Harleys myself. Although, they aren't really built for speed.

And I really don't get the whole noise thing.

But OCC makes some Bee-You-Tea-Full bikes!!
