    I'm sure others will disagree, but wow that is ugly.

    I've always felt these were weird looking too, but the wackiness and adjustability of the handlebars has always intrigued me.

    I think Gary was smoking something when he came up with this one. :bigsmile:

    It would be interesting to ride though....he has always been obsessed with ride quality and comfort.

    I did get to ride it, and it was extremely comfortable putting aside how ugly it is

    I should also mention that the front end took a minute to get used to it was kind of wobbly back and forth..

    Here's proof that I saw this Jackalope in person, just in case there are any non believers out there.

    Many cool parts however I could not justify $450 worth. I really had a hard time justifying $300, if he would of even taken that. Lol.
    It's a 24 inch back and a 26 inch front wheel.

    I think Kingfish had his chance at one of these before.

    If you swapped out the fork and bars with something more tame like a set of triple trees and some regular cruiser bars it might not look as crazy. It just has too much inspector gadget going on in one bike.

    I have never seen so many ideas fit into such a small space before. It's glorious but not in a way the makes me spend that much money on.

    Yeah, there was this one on CL from Alabama or Tennessee. I don't remember the price, but it was more than I was willing to pay.
