This trike designed and built by Concord, California-based U.S. Kustoms was the coolest looking cruiser-style motorcycle at the show. Cost to build it was in excess of $100,000.

I have to admit, what dope was the builder smoking? I have seen way better trikes made by Lehmans and even Harley Davdison's Trike is better then this piece of junk. I think $100,000 is for insurance so when they trash it they can put a claim against their insurance company because there is no way $100,000 in it, using a springer front end and a trike rear end the frame better be titanium and the paint better be gold or real damn crushed pearls and then add in some diamonds and a rolex watch and it could be worth it.

it's only cool if you ride it so until I see them pumping out a few hundred miles a week or more, it's a show piece, not a bike.
I'm with the guy above, 100k for what. ? It's a basic candy paint with black panels, minimal chrome and billet which is where partscost to much .

Mitch Bennett - $100,000... SERIOUSLY???  July 20, 2010 10:28 AM
Seriously, How am I to take anything written here seriously when the sentence “Cost to build it was in excess of $100,000.” is seen next to a ridiculous looking tricycle? Did you mean Pesos? Was the builder so bad he had to throw out the first 2 versions? Is there $50,000 in cash clear coated into the bike that I can’t see? Oh that would be so cool!!!
