They aren't my style, but I understand they used to be quite expensive and I'm wondering if there is much of a secondary market for their bikes. I think Kid Rock has one. They are cool in an artsy kind of way, but feel way outdated to me. I wish I knew how to post pictures. If one of you guys that has my cell number and can post a photo, let me know and I'll send you one to post.

I had one. Roger Bourget was a visionary and wasn’t just a cake decorator like most of the bike builders of his time. My bike was an early model before he machined a lot of his own parts. His claim to fame was lowering the seat height by eliminating the oil tank and using the frame tubes as the oil tank. This way you could have a full travel suspension and sit very low to the ground. Definitely one of the better built bikes of the chopper craze. All that being said, Bourget bikes aren’t worth shit these days.

Yeah, the bottom's done fell out of this market, for all of the manufacturers. I remember we had a thread kind of like this before. Some of those fancy bikes don't even get 10 grand on a trade for a new bike.

I was reading about the oil in frame. Pretty innovative idea. The two bikes I'm talking about are 2006 models. I know a lot was paid for them and they haven't been out much, but were regularly serviced. I have a feeling they are only worth a small fraction of what was paid back then, regardless of condition.

The bikes never really appealed to me, but all of them that I knew of seemed to be well sorted. I would agree with the comment above that they were probably among the best quality of that time period.

If you are shopping to ride, not a bad choice. If you are considering as an investment I would try a completely different market. More money in golf carts than Harley’s or variants these days.

never liked his crap evos,now every evo is crap.except for the sportsters
I don't know much about his bikes. I never heard of them until today. Like I said, they are cool in an artsy kind of way, but I'm pretty sure my boyfriend will kill himself on one. I really don't like the looks of them as far as a bike to ride and if you screw up the paint or anything, then it would suck.

Been looking at all that. I see what is being asked, but I don't know what they actually have sold for.

That's kinda what I was thinking. A small fortune was paid for the two, but I doubt they are worth a fraction of that. My boyfriend is owed some money and one of the bikes has been offered. I think I'd rather have the money.

A client had one for sale last year for 12k. I think he still has it. If I was still into bikes I would have gotten it, too many texters nowadays

Cool looking, but I wonder how well they handle and brake...
