The custom VTX Baron created for J&P; Cycles owner John Parham follows in the steps of Baron's customs featured in Motorcycle Cruiser (at least nine times). Although the bike's look and style place it plainly in the lineage of Baron's bikes, it also highlights two directions in which he has begun to take his customs. First, the bike is, well, a Honda VTX. No Yamaha badge anywhere in sight. That's right, Baron doesn't just lay his hands on Stars anymore. Second, he has begun to approach customizing motorcycles not just as a means of showcasing his own creativity and talent. Instead, he's building customs to inspire cruiser riders to consider what they could do to their bikes. Consequently, he's trying to keep the budget on his projects in the realm of what real people can spend, not the cubic dollars some builders drop on their bikes.
