    Interesting Bike

    So I don't post that often. Mostly just read because I don't feel like getting flame by some arrogant jerk.

    http://fixedgeargallery.com/2008/nov/4/WilliamCanup.htm

    Was browsing the Fixed Gear Gallery and thought this would be cool to share.


    Anyone else do creative things to their bikes?

    I put a steering wheel on my bike when I was 13. It was way cool and fun. I must have had coaster brakes.

    Looking at the last photo it looks like a gaspipe grade frame. Stamped sheet metal dropouts that are inserted into crimped down frame tubes usually are an indicator of the lowest grade frames made. The lugs also look to be late 1980s cheap Taiwanese. IMO a 1980 to 1995 era department store grade Taiwanese frame. The only thing special is the steering wheel.

    Too many haters in this world an not enough lovers

    Any person that has an experimental bike with every components that are all high end is silly or ridiculously rich.

    It's a great experimental bike. I bet half the guys on this forum would argue against putting a steering wheel on a nice vintage ride.

    oh well.
