I don’t hate these guys, but they’re coming off as elitist corporate w*****. Appearing in American Express commercials this summer and shamelessly promoting themselves for months on end with every bike they build (only two so far), I wonder when they have time to create their third six-figure status symbol for somebody who will let Falcon keep it to ceaselessly promote themselves. That must be why each cycle takes two years to complete.
Why buy a bike and let the builder keep it to enhance their own brand recognition? Seems the buyer ought to get paid instead of the other way around.
With all due respect to the esteemed Jason Lee, who actually took home his bike, wouldn’t it be great to build bikes for millionaire suckers who pay 100 hundred grand to purchase but never take possession of? What a deal. I want that gig!
Here’s their latest bit of propaganda marketing material. No discernible oil leak this time.
Their next bike is going to be a 1951 Vincent Black Shadow and according to the Falcon website it’s slated for completion…. last month.
Hence the video above so you so don’t forget about how cool Falcon is!
I wonder what you guys think of Falcon. Overpriced and overhyped or unique and properly valued rideable art?
