Jelly Belly Bike

This bike showed up at the shop on Friday- it's an Arlen Ness design with a jelly bean shaped side car. The owner is an executive @ the Jelly Belly factory, and was picking up his new trailer and had the biked ship to the shop to get the tiedown placements correct. Very cool bike! The billet wheels had a jelly bean shape to them as so did the mirrors.

The owner was telling me that he's taking it to Sturgis and Arlen Ness is supposed to cruise it around- (Ness's son is the acutal builder).
It's also gonna be at the GoodGuys West coast Nats in Pleseanton.
Wayy too much money in this bike.

Sturgis he says, the looks of that thing screams "BEAT UP MY OWNER, HE"S A SISSY".

Sorry, but a jellybean bike? I doubt the Walrus and his progeny at OCC would build something that silly, then again money does talk.

what can you say...

To each his own....just not my cup of tea!! I like the old school choppers and full dressed bikes better than most customs I have seen.
