Paint it black and I think you would have the Batcycle.

thats not the bike from the swap - but it looked like it
only stopping factors were:
$200 - didnt have it on me and also its upper range for me (not totally unreasonable though)
and ... wah wah - already too many bikes
i got the fellas card so who knows what the future may hold

edit: gotta say - never had seen a frame like that before - it stopped me in my tracks - i though at first it was some funky rat rod creation but no that was how they made em - there were other dragstrippers there but they were all muscle bike types - this was the only one that i would consider 'road' - 3 speed i guess

I will give Iverson credit, they made junk but it was very unique junk. I remember seeing plenty of Iverson bikes at a long defunct discounter that we used to shop at in the late 60's.

The name of this thing is politically incorrect on every and all accounts.

Come to think of it, so is the construction.

All I'm seeing is horizontal dropouts. Too bad there's no derailler hanger to grind off.

I wonder if that was one of the bikes that bigbossman made at the Iverson factory when he was a youngster.
