    I wonder if this could be made to fold?

    An interesting bike guaranteed to turn heads -- or stomachs . A conversation piece if there ever was one. One would need to do something with that saddle though. Maybe a nice folding project perhaps for you engineering types?

    (This thread really shouldn't be in the Folding Bikes sub-forum, it should have been posted in the Alt Bike Culture sub-forum: http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdispl...t-Bike-Culture)

    They're not everyone's cup of tea, but I love the creativity, and attention to artistry that Lowrider bikes exude. That example above is fairly plain in comparison to most on the show circuit.

    Folding is easy. Getting it to work after you've unfolded it - that is the hard part.

    they are not my style..... BUT I do love them most of them are built by kids or teenagers, they put a lot of time and effort into those ( somewhat hideous I know ) contraptions. Time away from the xbox, time away from "hangin" on the streetcorners, time away from gang activity .... and and and ...
    I love those lowriders....
