"Ah, 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 simple problem requires a simple solution, like a rear tire taken from an Armored Personnel Carrier and wrapped in steel chains. Time to get back to basics."

"The original stripped-down hillclimber."
Arena War description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Gargoyle is a hillclimber motorcycle featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Cunning Stunts update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

This vehicle appears to based on a 1928 Indian 101 Scout that has been modified into a hillclimber. It comes with off road tyres as default, with the rear wheel of the vehicle being unique as it is wrapped in bike chains, a typical trait for hillclimbers.

The vehicle has a very basic design with little body paneling. The front forks are joined by the headlight panel, which sports two small, circular headlights. Behind the front wheel is the vehicle's radiator which cools the engine directly behind it.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

The bike performs very similar to the Hexer, having very similar handling and braking. The bike has good traction thanks to the rear tyre wrapped with chain, meaning the wheels do not spin when vigorously setting off. The motorcycle also has good handling thanks to a large steering radius. As expected, the bike has a large V-Twin engine model with a distinctive odd-firing idle sound.

Description

The Gargoyle can be converted into a custom Arena variant dubbed "Deathbike", which may have its bodywork altered and can be customized with armor parts, saw blades and weapons. It is available in three different versions: Apocalypse, Future Shock and Nightmare.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be purchased from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $120,000. Can have either the Gargoyle or Gargoyle Vintage livery applied, but can be removed at Los Santos Custom.
    • Can be also purchased for $90,000 as a trade price, as a Sponsorship Tier reward in the Arena War Career (only in the Arena War website).

Trivia

General

  • The name Gargoyle is from a carved or formed, typically grotesque spout often found on old structures or buildings.
  • One of the Gargoyle's liveries contain the number 69, which is yet another obscene humor by Rockstar.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • By applying a larger rim to the rear wheel, the Gargoyle will become glitched. If the rider is performing a wheelie, the bike's rear wheel will be etched into the ground, giving the bike a constant and tremendous speed boost.
