    Two things here, first, was that video made in 1985 cause of the bad hair band music.
    And second, some moron (not naming names) will buy a peddle bike thinking they can out ride a jeep.

    Don't feel bad for digging this one up. It is clearly a "Best Of" that should be opened routinely to celebrate what it was and can still be.

    In that it sucks everyone in and there's no escape or way to destroy it? I like the analogy.

    There have been numerous well known automotive company's over the years that have put their name on a bike. And all have been crap wal mart type bikes. One can only guess why they would want to advertise by way of a crappy bike.

    Jeep
    Porsche
    Hummer
    Honda

    To name a few off hand, of the above the only serious bike was the Honda.

    In the early days of the Trek - Volkswagen partnership, there was a Jetta Trek Edition that came with a solid bike and a Thule rack if I remember correctly. This is the only case I remember where there was real gear being offered. Then again, those bikes won't be nearly as memorable as this Jeep build gone South.

    That looks much more respectable than the POS the OP was going on and on about...

    (at least it's a much less POS).

    If you're just wanting to do this as some sort of redneck science project (which is something I also enjoy) then by all means go ahead. If you actually want a bike worth riding then don't sink another dime into it.

    I live in China and see these things all the time here. I've built several loaner bikes for students. Cheap junk bikes are always a black hole for money and are usually not upgradeable with decent parts. Example: you'll be stuck forever with the POS fork you currently have since the head tube is a 1" not a 1 1/8". Of course you could maybe cut it off and weld on a new head tube, but if you're willing to do that I'd do something really cool and just build your own frame to begin with instead of modifying that POS. Those things sell NEW here in China for about $50. Seriously. Custom stuff like you're wanting to do is cool. Working with that frame though is a waste of time unless you're just doing it to be ridiculous (which is a legitimate pursuit).
