    Saw it at Bike week and walked by without a second look. Electronics were more appealing this bikeweek.

    A reworked police bike after the contract expires. Add a couple of Do-Dads, cheap paint and they want $50K plus.

    Hey Max if it’s that simple, why don’t you got to auction, buy up a dozen of those out dated police specials, add a few gadgets, put your name on them and make a quick buck… Personally I think its an awesome bagger. Good luck with the Badlander Lorenzo…

    Trotta builds a bagger? I like it because, like his other bikes, it is rideable. peace

    Very ugly. This ape hanger looks like toothpicks on the tortoise.

    Who is Lorenzo Lamas?

  7. 7 Brett Mar 15th, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Lorenzo Lamas is an actor & biker. Most of his shows were in the late 80’s & early 90’s on syndicated TV. Renegade was the big one. I believe may have been on Falcon Crest or one of the 80’s night time soaps like Dynasty, Dallas, Falcon Crest, etc…

    Somebody show the Renegade some love, at least he’s trying. He didn’t just get into bikes for a little publicity, he gets that with goofy reality shows. He has been a motorcycle guy for a long time so I guess he figured he would give it a try. Good luck “Vince Black”

    The comments here regarding likes and dislikes speak volumes as to what sort of ‘bikers’ we represent.

    In fact I am more often than not passing by this blog without a second look.

    Taste is a like a liquid, changing form often as we pass through life. Reality is not so flexible.
    To each her own. I wish all success. I only hope you ride what you build and promote, long and hard.

    Even if this ride seems a little dated and plain I’d ride it all day long to places really far away. That’s what I like.
    I may not make each and every bike week but at least the ones I do attend I ride to.

    Good to see a little less bling and a lot more motorcycle. Eddie has insight. These men may just make it through the economic reality that is toppling the industry with a domino effect.
    Time, reality and tastful desires will tell. Good work men.
    Back to work.

    I like it. It is custom AND functional. I’d like to see a little more rake and a longer front end but then it would be like my bike and as soon as everyone had one like mine I would have to build something else. I may let Eddie take mine for a ride when I see him next though. Everyone else has rode it. I’ll even let Lorenzo ride it ( I dug the renegade show).

  12. 12 jspfc Mar 15th, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    It is an okay looking bike but sorry nothing about this bike says $50k plus.

  13. 13 C O L E M A N F U Mar 15th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    I think he’s on to something. I dig his take on it but…….I would prefer a shallower or more flush lid on the bags to show off the back fender more – and run a low solo seat. Just sayin. Hi Cy!

    Lorenzo and Eddie are always very nice to me and they treat Bean’re like a brother (even though he doesn’t deserve it) j/k.. I have nothing but well wishes for them.. Well put dgbyers. Have fun in Miami Bean’re.

    I agree, It looks great, and I am sure they will Deal a couple to a Few Grand on this Bike. If it was any more Radical why would anyone want a Bagger? After all, aien’t a Bagger suppose to be ridden and cruised with. I think, Lorenzo and Eddie, has done well with this Bagger. Go Team, Go !

  16. 16 Dale Mar 16th, 2010 at 8:21 am

    I always welcome new companies and groups to this industry. I like the style, and the team that Lorenzo has put together. The finished products will speak for themselves.
    I hope this industry learns to accept “newcomers” and embrace change. We have looked old and stubborn for years, it is time to embrace growth.
    Best of Luck Lorenzo

    How much is he asking? Is it really 50k? If so, I don’t think it is going to work in this economy. However, it is very custom looking and kinda cool. Like any bike, there are things I would change for my personal taste. Overall, not bad looking.

  18. 18 fuzznut Mar 16th, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    So many haters looks fly to me ,Eddie make great looking bikes that you can ride not just pose next

    Aren’ts skulls over yet?

  20. 20 jatinder pal Mar 17th, 2010 at 12:11 am

    …Right said J,skulls r done.Personally i dont like baggers,and if they r asking for $50 grand,its not worth it.

    Baggers have their place and if anyone is paying attention at a rally there are far more bagers than 300 wide tire choppers anymore. I’ve been building true custom baggers since 97 and we now offer 2 different models. The main difference is we try to not look like a Road King replica. It’s always amazed me how everyone still wants those square bags that resemble a Thermos lunch box bolted to the sides of their bike. They may be stretched but they still have no lines in common with any other part of the bike. Maybe H-D should have hired the same guy that designed the Fat Bob tanks to shape their bags. No flow at all on the bags and making them longer doesn’t really help them look any better. They have always looked like after thoughts to me. Now using the same platform to build a “custom” may seem like the best idea but really, how many people thought it was just a customized H-D? Then that price tag, holy cow. Makes my Bagger models seem like a huge bargain, maybe I should re-evaluate my pricing.

    It really looks like something that a kid could have done. I mean really, it looks like an FLHR that has been dragged to near death thru the bagger section of any or all of the aftermarket catalogs… definitely not worth $50,000.00. But some retard will buy it, and it will probably be the douche whose wife spends $400.00 on a CHEAP pair of shoes…

  23. 23 Bigalyts Mar 21st, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Bobfather, excuse me for making a competitive comment and a unbiased opinion, your Baggers are about $.30 on a Dollar to the Lamas/Trotta Creation! Leave yours priced as is!!!!!!!!
