I don't know about you but I think you'd have to be pretty desperate or high out of your mind to steal that bike. I wonder if the stuff on the seat will wash outof the pants. O_o;; The green dry smile stuff scares me

Took the chain too -- those Wippy links really are handy. That'll prevent that snatch and ride away....

Heh, I thought it might be kind of fun to strip all the parts away from the frame, and rebuild it, leaving the encrusted frame as it is Maybe rebuild it with a "Davy Jones' Locker" theme

Barnacles will really scratch up a person; won't be comfortable at all sitting either. All it needs now is an barnacles on-off toggle feature.
