None of mine were exiles, that second one is a detroit Brothers same as the first. Unless you were just throwing out a blanket statement.

Heres some Exile bikes:




Those two probably sum up Exile best. Their more traditional bikes still exude the clean clean ultra monoblock designs though. I like the new bar hopper:



Very similar to one of my favorite builders, Suckerpunch Sallys.

i have a question for people who know about choppers...


with that kind of angle and little to nothing holding the front shock, how does it not break? i ride Mountain bikes with triple crown forks but they are not at that angle and it seems as though those forks would break seeing the abuse on a road.

Do you mean the actual shock mechanism failing or a mounting point on the front forks?

i mean the shock itself bro. check out that green one on one of the very first posts. the travel is extremely long and the the bottom part of the shock seems as though it would snap if it hit something.
