Cool. I think that I like the green one the best.

What kind of medical and dental coverage do you have?

Chopper bikes seem to be the up and coming fad bike.

Check with IE Cycles out of California. They make good chopper bikes- custom made to your specifications. Felt also makes chopper bikes. They have a Felt Sycthe and the Felt Fuller. Both seem to be outrageously priced.

Scroll through the pictures I took at Interbike for some of the bikes I mentioned earlier: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ight=Interbike

I got a flyer from Performance. They have a chopper bike for about $150 they're selling. I'm thinking of getting one for my older nephew.

A buddy of mine and I built this a few years ago. It's a combo of new parts, old parts, found parts, and scrap metal. We built a second one just last year for him, but I don't have a pic of that one.

If anyone here did the MS Ride in October like I did, they saw one of the coolest bikes ever. The guy had a low rider chopper style fixie with a red-white-and-blue gas tank and everything. It was amazing. Of course, my first thought was "How is he going to make the climb on that thing at Fort Tryon?" but nonetheless a classic bike with a classic look.

The issue of Cycling Plus UK from October had a whole section devoted to the lowrider phenomenon in England. This one ain't goin' away any time soon...
