Hey Ya'll, THIS BIKE WAS STOLEN FROM MY HOME IN CHANDLER, AZ

I think I should cover the bags too, what do you think?

Later,

Yowzah!

I LIKE the glow in the dark .

But the bags look too nice to be covered. Ummm, but, ummm, maybe?

Could you let us take a look at covered as well?

Oh yeah, some flourescent green paint on the spokes would be awesome.

Nope. Keep the variety. It provides a contrast.

Greenblazer, I just read the Kenny Prather interview in your link. Thanks for providing the link, what a great interview . The John Deere bike is just so cool.

Thanks! I think I've decided to continue covering it, and I was thinking about wheel discs that cover the spokes and covering those with green fur too. Anyone know where to find those discs for covering spokes?

Freak Bike is way cool, I'm glad you enjoyed the link.

The green fuzzy chopp bike flat-out-kicks @$$ !!!
Soooo cool !! It reminds me of H.R Puff'nStuff for some reason

I have had the supreme honor of witnessing a West Palm Freak Bike nite
and Kenny P's creations. There are no words to describe what I saw
Pics DO NOT do the Freak Bikes or their rides and riders justice.
Keep up the great work !!
If A&E ever gets wind of these events there WILL be a FreakBike build-off show..
you heard it here first !!!!!

Actually, if the television producers can devote so many hours of programming to motorcycles, why not have a FreakBike show? That would be great stuff!

And probably much safer for aging baby boomers .

TV is controlled by money, and the government. Bicycles do not help Oil Companies make money. Motorsports help Oil Companies make money. I'd watch Freak Bikes on TV, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

Considering that I can't remember when I last watched television, I would agree. If I'm not at work, or busy on the computer (sometimes the work/fun bit gets combined ), I'm probably out on one of the bikes.

Hey, those Prather bros were up here in Canada for our Freak bike cruise. I didn't make the connection. In fact, I think the pixie bike I was racing I borrowed from Kenny.

It's starting to look like a big green racing rabbit (visualise the riser bars as ears, headlamp as rabbit head, forks at rabbit front legs).

I like the covered bags, they actually look pretty good that way .

Unfortunately some of the links on that page are broken, but you'll get the idea.

Got more pics! More complete.







It's mostly done for now. I have a Jockey shift style brake actuator that is under construction. I am also having a problem with the electric drive that I'm looking for help with(see thread in the Electric Bike Forum: Sting Ray Electric Problem Please Help )

You need to find a way to put some fur on that chain! So, I went to a Scooter rally in Vegas and there was a guy there with a Lambretta covered in pink fur like that. I have no idea how he kept it clean, but it was rad.
