    There comes a time in every boy's life,,,

    There comes a time in every boy's life when gets that strange desire. Yes, that strange desire to take his 7 year old 60 dollar Target bike, strip it of its cheap and non-functional derailleurs and cable to make it a singlespeed like his real bike so he can post here, add a 12 1/2" scooter wheel to the front and decorate in a shall we say "metrosexual" fashion and call it his clown bike. Yes, I will be riding it to school sometime.



    Close ups of my beautifully tacky 'art'


    Aren't they wonderful? Complete with little peaces of foam for all the flower power I can get.



    Fork is now CHROMED!!!! (with duct tape)


    And now my most favoritest part, handlebar grips made of old bath towels. They're really comfy. Really.

    Wow, that has "bend me over" written all over it. I feel this should prompt an ugly bike contest.

    Who's in?

    Wo-oooh that's the second trippest bike I've ever since, even out-whackyfies most messenger bikes.

    Good on ya mate, I say it could do with more pink. But what I don't get is the scooter wheel in the front, would that make the handling a bit sketchy?

    I hope this isn't your competition for Pierre's homemade bike. I'm hoping his looks a bit better, although you will get a few more looks when you ride that to school.
