OC choppers? BORING...

Especially when compared to this Skeleton bike.

Made from 100% stainless and cold rolled steel with a Ford engine, there are NO fiberglass components. Remarkable metal work, this is truly a rolling work of art.

With the level of skill that went into this my bet is it rides and performs well too.
Very cool.

Wow, that is an amazing piece of craftsmanship. Any idea how long it took to build it?

Hmmm, if you ran that beefy front tire and rear car tire at low pressures I'll bet you would be surprised how well it handles bumps. It's got be really heavy.

Now, actually turning it around in a parking lot might be a challenge!

I don't know much about it, saw it on www.batorinternational.com. Unfortunately I can't seem to link directly to the listing, but if you look at the bottom of the home page there is a link for bikes "1951 - current " and it is at the very bottom of that linked page.

It had to be a collaborative effort between a master sculptor and bike builder. I don't think any one person has that much talent!

Nah--in Kommiefornia, they would add a "luxury" tax on your ass, to boot!
