Very true, xringracing. Not my cup of tea, but hey, some folks have the disposable income to do this stuff. More power to them.
To me these custom bikes (usually from the Orient or Eastern Europe) are like a pretty fashion model or Hollywood fitness type that looks, well---"Wow!" but can't cook, clean, care for household matters, care for children, and just be an overall partner in life, etc, worth a dang. Pretty useless, but you still take the moment to appreciate them for how beautiful they look, and then turn around and return your thoughts to your (in your mind) infinitely superior wife who may not be a model, but has ten thousand more valuable real world aspects to her. That's the analogy I often use for custom bikes. One can still appreciate them just for what they are without ever desiring to have one.
