Custom built PJD chrome bike takes cue from P-51 mustang fighter plane

We’ve seen all sorts of monstrous bikes and customized bikes, we’ve also seen cute bikes and some outrageous bikes, but where can we slot the PJD bike is beyond me. I have no words to express the sophistication and class of this really stunning bike by Paul Jr. (who we know from the famous American Choppers). Paul Jr.’s all-new and much-kept-secret the PJD bike made with inspiration drawn from the classic P-51 mustang fighter plane of the WWII ear, is a custom creation sure to thrill fans to the core.

Paul Jr. has been mechanically inclined for most part of his creative career, and this bike that picks cues from the WWII plane’s design is a perfect example of the designer’s creativity and eye for mechanical detail. Unveiled at the 2012 Daytona Beach Motorcycle Show, the PJD bike won the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike championship, all thanks to its never-before seen chrome and stainless steel body, 6 speed automatic transmission and custom made PJD/Renegade wheels.

    Ummmm… No it doesn’t. Three bladed wooden props? How is that a styling cue from a Mustang? Further, fighter aircraft of that period had FLUSH rivets. The list could go but the last thing I’ll say is that the Mustang was a beautiful plane.

    The wooden prop channels WW1. Some of the heavy cladding looks more like a ground vehicle or the Chrysler building, but it is cool. I am not sure anything here says p51 to me other than maybe the gas tank, which looks more like a p40 Warhawk. Those huge wheels and the open frame nail the p38 Lightning. I would say he has more p38 than anything else. So he didn’t nail the p51, but he did channel 40 amazing years of aviation into a wild looking machine. …totally looks like a p38 now that I said it.

    I agree with Infidel. That thing is an abomination. The rivets, the wooden props, the kitchy little black propeller on the primary cover speak to little knowledge of the real thing and lazy research. And he had a real one to look at in his building. If you really want to get into the weeds, the Mustang had a 12 cylinder Rolls Royce engine. That thing has eight exhaust ports, which look like they’d put the exhaust right on the rider. I have a feeling we won’t hear much more out of Junior. Unless of course one of his creations kills someone.
