Back when Discovery Channel had the Biker Build-off, I always preferred what Exile put out. I don't go for the stretched choppers with long forks, wild paint, etc., so Exile's "shrink-wrapped muscle" approach appealed to me--plain paint, wide front tire, smooth and clipped.
On the other hand, I also liked Indian Larry and his wild, cartoony-looking '60s style bikes.

'Or with his nails he'll dig it up again!
