    Some more alt bikes I've seen around town

    First, here's some scrunched-up looking bikes I saw once. I don't know what they're actually called.

    Here's a cool beach cruiser that's been made up like an old California Highway Patrol motorcycle, complete with strobes and siren.

    That would be a short bike.

    Last summer I actually saw a bike with a small barbecue mounted on the rear. The coals were lit and you could still smell the goodness from whatever he cooked on it.

    I'm pretty sure this is the same bike I posted video of here with his bike-mounted car stereo blasting Pink Floyd.

    I got video of it again with the lit barbecue. Since it was dark out, the video came out even better.

    i have a somewhat similar bike



    20" mountain bike, wih 26" swing arm amd forks. this pic is after i extended the swing arm a few inches.

    i got the idea from a member of another forum. i though he was making something like the bike version of a rock crawler, but he was making a bike version of a "donk" (the custom cars stitting on the largest diameter wheels they can find).
