i need some of these for my bike/bag. Anyone know where to get them?
I was just going to bungee a boombox to a rack, but this seems way cooler
THere is this guy that rides around philly who has a portable tv(maybe 2 even) strapped to his handlebars, along with a few boomboxes, and about 50 pounds of other random **** all taped to his ride.. any other phillians see this dude?
We ride with a guy pushin' a stretch chopper fixed gear/ss with full sound. He rocks leading the Critical Mass every month. It's like a party on wheels!
when i was little i had a bike ("bmx" style) that actually had a radio designed and attached in the U of the front handlebar. it was called the Street Rocker
I knew I should have put a picture up when I had it.....I took an old osiris boombag apart and sewed the speakers onto my chrome bag and dropped the 12 battery amp down one of the water bottle slots and cranked the itunes on group fixie rides..it was dope.
I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.
man, that's on my "to do" list as of...right...NOW.
In the town where I grew up in central Wisco, (scary place) there was this guy named Tony who would ride these home-built choppers around. He was from a strange family situation and wasn't quite all there. Anyway, after rocking the choppers for a while he decided to take it to the next level and installed a CB radio, complete with a 20' whip antenna.
I used to know his CB handle.
Back when cassette tapes were considered high tech, and Radio Shack was the poor man's Sharper Image, I rigged up a 3 spd bike w/ a sound system and played the "Knight Rider" theme song in a loop during my commute. That song has been in my head for the last 17 years.........................
^ I did the same thing with the Miami Vice soundtrack when I was a kid. I thought I was the $hit.
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
hahaha ,... knight rider... arent those shows availably now on itunes?
