American Chopper, Gander Mountain Bike

Anyone see this monster dualsport they are building? It's definitely unlike anything they have ever done before. For what it is, I have to say they are doing a decent job. I don't think the intention of the bike is to perform anything like a real dualsport, but to have that sort of "Will it... could it..." kind of feeling. From what I see being done, it should be able to handle your typical maintained forest road with a few rough spots.

Heck, it can't be any worse then WAY back in the day when hardcore bikers took massive street bikes off-road. There are photos floating around on the net showing some of those guys in action.

I watched that whole episode. I think it's one of the hottest rides they've ever built. It's probably not fantastic off of the pavement, but I'd be willing to give it a shot. Love the fenders and the seat. Fork boots and a GPS on the next one, though?!?!
