trying to true that fucking wheel xD
or just fucking put it together.

Both Wheels took about 4

Both Wheels took about 4 hours each ... very painful ... but good practice. Any wheel I've built since then is a walk in the park

Smooth bike!

Show a pic of somebody riding it.

Detailed, low, looks comfortable to ride.

One of the more interesting renditions of a low riding bike I have seen in a while. Sleek apearence detailed features tastefuly done. Did you build this your self not familiar with the logos. Whare can I find a seat like that?

Bike has been built from

Bike has been built from scratch. Very few parts have been untouched ... namely the bottom bracket, wheel bearings, pedals and fork ends. Everything else was modified and/or built from scratch, including the seat. Headtube logo is the liveSTRONG logo. Same logo was also stamped into the leather before staining and stitching onto the cantilevered seat.

Cheers and Happy New Year


That looks wild!

My bad...

They are correct

If I'm not mistaking

The tires are mounted backward...

.They look right to me.

Flames blow back when you go forward......

That's what...

That's what I was thinking but it really doesn't matter either way ... it just looked best that way

Tire Tread mounting...

Although the bike is perfectly rideable ... quite comfortable if I may add. It was was built as a "functional art object". We knew it would mostly be on display and sometimes used for photo shoots. The decision on how to mount the tires was based solely on looks.


Just stunning!!!
How 'bout a close up photo of those tyres!

Well Done...

I live in Pittsburgh, but might just have to take a trip to Cleveland to see this for myself.

Beautiful job.

F*ckin Sweet!!!
