Has JT Nesbitt lost his mind?

Dailies -



First it was a CNG-powered art deco roadster and a cross-country drive through freezing temperatures. Then it was making fun of Indian for simply chasing profit through lowest common denominator products. Then it was his new American “Superbike” which looks, as described by commenter KidChampion, “like someone took a crap on a cruiser parked in a dark alley,” and attempts to solve a problem no one knew existed by suspending both the front and rear wheels on a single leaf spring. Now, New Orleans’ resident lunatic is trying to get members of the public to give him $500,000 to build three of those bikes and take them racing a Bonneville. Given that there’s 13 days to go and they’re only $13k towards the goal, that’s not looking likely. Oh, and there’s these videos.

Created in support of the Bienville Legacy Kickstarter page, these videos literally leave us speechless. JT, do you just not take motorcycle design seriously anymore? Do you, the public, really have any faith in this project?

        Did you know that JT is personally responsible for a 12 percent spike in indecent exposure arrests in NOLA over the last 14 months?

    I still think that they could have provided less information and received more support. A little background on JT and clearly state the project goals, and it would have been better received. I only had time to watch the first of these videos. Looks like they had fun. The ADMCI site has Bienville misspelled at the bottom left menu. A little more time designing the campaign would have gone a long way. Good, respectable, shirt collars in these videos, though.

      You should have watched the last one.

      • kidchampion

        I just watched it. I guess I was hoping for a skit about goofy shirt collars.

    These vids are awesome!

    I hope that they end up being able to fund their bikes somehow. They could always have a re-think of how their Kickstarter campaign has gone, and come back with better planning, a better pitch etc. Wouldn’t be the first time that someone had a failed Kickstarter, and made a successful comeback.
