Custom Rides

Have you ever noticed on all these shows on TV that customize cars (rides, overhaulin, etc...)of how many of these cars are NOT street legal. Even the bike shows are "hyped". Most of these rides don't have mirrors, legal bumpers, or lights. Just caught an episode of overhaulin' and the car Foose designed was fantastic, but it had NO mirrors or wipers... (kind of "hype TV" to me)

You mean like the one in your sig, c1apton? No trun signals, wipers, no DOT approved bumper...

Yeah, I've noticed that alot of new custom whips hitting the streets are street legal by a hair, if at all. As for bikes, the only ones i've seen turned out that are street legal have been built by Paul Teutul and his boys out in Rock Tavern, NY.
