Why the negative

responds from people.Some of you may know that I like to make my own custom parts (good or bad) now picture the situation. Awww man, thats some sweet parts. What brand is that and where did you buy it? Thanks, you like it hu? Yea, that's crazy, I want something like that too, where did you buy it at? I made it and if you want I can make it for you.The look on the guy's face is full of shock and disapointment due to the fact that "I MADE IT" and not a well known maker. Are some people that really concern with name brand item?? . Sorry guys, camera is down so no picture of what I'm talking about..maybe later.

if you make it yourself and you pull it off well it's 10 times better than buying it...whether it's your bike, working on a house, whatever...anyone with money can buy shit...

It's like everthing else. People like/dislike certain things. Harley Davidsons, custom paint, stickers, stretched swing arms...and have opinions good/bad. If it's from a known manufacturer, you assume it fits right, is tested, waraunteed, etc...just my
