Bike Shaped Objects

Funky bikes and news
The stuff of a rebuilder’s dreams

ratbikeSome people will settle for nothing less than a brand new bike. Others want a pristine piece of vintage artistry. Then there are people like me.

Look at that beautiful mess of parts. Everything is there and in not very bad shape. Having the parts not match is a great thing for a bikist like me because it greatly lowers the price and means the bike will survive as a useful bike rather than display fodder.

My absolute favorite part are the stunt pegs on the front wheel with the blue tire. I wonder what happened to the rest of that particular BMX bike. I also love the seller’s description of the bike as “very vintage.” Kind of like most bestest.

The opening bid is only 99 cents. At that price, even with the shipping from Florida, the bike would be worth it.
