    Jay Leno's Garage

    On this page, Jay Leno checks out some very well finished MBs. I know it goes against our DIY grain a bit, but good work is good work.
    I like to imagine the builder saw some of our creations and was inspired.

    Cool video. Phantom bikes is a sponsor here if you weren't aware.

    I really like the sound of the exhaust note with their custom exhaust pipe.

    I certainly recognized that silly "I'm riding an MB and loving it" grin on Leno's face.

    Ditto here. I emailed the company and they said they would look into it. It still is blank for me.

    those are nice bikes and every body loves jay. cool he could give him a bump like that. but did i hear right when he pointed to the one jay was on and said $6,000. thats over a $3500 mark up.

    i'm clearly not charging enough for my bikes.

    That's just good business. Getting on that segment will be a big boost to sales and he has set a high price ceiling

    Well, I understand the purpose is to promote something that can be bought, but for "zoot" I'll put my bike up against those....well, the touring model at least.

    Phantom Bikes on Jay Leno's garage

    Check it out, Phantom Bikes was on Jay Leno's garage recently:

    Phantom Bikes

    The link to the show portion:

    Phantom Bikes - Phantom - Jay Leno's Garage

    It's great to see motorized bike publicity! The bikes looked great and performed awesome as well! I like the dual tank idea on the custom cruiser model. That's something I mentioned a while back in the custom tank thread.

    I posted this info. here as they are a seller so check em out!

    Nice work guys!

    That is a nice bike, nothing compared to his Jet bike.

    Re: Phantom Bikes on Jay Leno's garage

    What did he say? up to $6,000? made in the USA? Every piece of that bike is made in china. Just like with derringercycles.com, I wonder who buys from these people. People like jay leno buy from these people. Phantom bikes is doing what jay leno did to Conan.

    Well, it probably couldn't hurt to have Jay Leno on our side...
