Western Gargoyle Appreciation (PIC HEAVY)

Discussion & Appreciation Thread of the Western Gargoyle

"A, the age old question: how do you get a cool vintage motorbike up a near-vertical hillside strewn with dust, rocks and the remains of lesser drivers? Forget carbon fiber panels and onboard computers. Sometimes a problem requires a simple solution, like a rear tire taken from an Armored Personal Carrier and wrapped in steel chains. Time to get back to basics."

 

Price: $120,000

 

Based of the real life modern Indian scout, heavily modified Hillclimbs became popular with soldiers who returned from WW2 and were looking for thrills. Back then there were no dirt bikes so they used Harley-Davidsons and Indians which were then modified with chains on the tires for traction and eventually, extended swingarms. The most famous hillclimb is the Widowmaker in Idaho. Modern hillclimbers have 1000cc Inline-4 cylinder sportbike engines in modified dirt bike frames with massively extended swingarms and spiked paddle tires.

 

Thank you Beez for this information.

This beast looks to one fast and mean looking bike!

 

there are topics that have either a screenshot in it from the trailer, topics with actual pictures started by someone who owns the vehicle, topics looking to discuss a soon to be released vehicle and then there's this kind of topic..

stop being a whiney little bitch. If the mods see this post as unnecessary, they will delete it. Why make such a big fuss about it like some sort of teachers pet? So embarrassing..

Welcome to the forum. Great way to make a good first impression on the community. ;)

What's the price on this one? Is there any other looks it can pull off or is it strictly a "hotrod"-ish bike? I'm digging it and seems right up my alley but would love to see what people can turn it into.

Other than a choice of liveries and its unique tires, no.

That's a pain in the ass. Still looks nice. Wish it had as much customization as the Daemon, especially for over 100k...

It's got a two-tone paint job, which is nice. Beast of a cycle. Handling is really, really good.

Great bike and it can wheelie at speed which is significant to many people. Looks like a proper beast too.

Doesn't seem to slow down much at all off-road and it's very stable, eats up slopes and climbs no problem at all. It's also more reliable than most bikes for sticking landings, I haven't come off it yet.

 

The front wheel doesn't come up massively high for speed wheelieing but it's not bad at all and great for the type of bike.

 

Overall it's a real cracker.

Just drove it off the side of Chiliad, two monster jumps and hit a tree at the bottom and I still haven't come off it. Got to be the best bike for landing safely on. I reckon I could get hit by a train and it would just knock the train off it's track.

Holy crap! This thing is amazing! A little disappointed by the lack of mods but performance makes up for it.

Aye that was my first thought when I took it to LSC but after I'd upgraded it and was razzing around the countryside without a care in the world I soon forgot it. It's an absolute monster of a bike.

Here's a little context for this vehicle. LINK to many photos

Our new bike in GTA seems to be based on this bike, a modern Indian Scout modified for hillclimb competition.

I thought hill climber too especially with the forward peg position.

Just drove it off the side of Chiliad, two monster jumps and hit a tree at the bottom and I still haven't come off it. Got to be the best bike for landing safely on. I reckon I could get hit by a train and it would just knock the train off it's track.

I read that it seems difficult to fall off bikes in general, most likely due to the stunt races having huge jumps. Have you noticed the same with other bikes?

Yes I have, just covered most of the map on my Bati in free roam and I didn't come off once despite going full throttle the whole time. Collisions other than head on just bounce you around a little and I wasn't bothering to land huge jumps back wheel first and I was staying on. As a regular stunter I'm used to dying on landing more often than not but not today.

 

More scientific testing is required but I'm very close to being certain that the robust physics of the stunt races has been applied to everything. Which is fantastic.
