    Let's see your bikes that were stolen...

    Get ready to weep.. My Blacksheep Luna Vista with Faith fork, Ti Cycles bar. Garage was targeted, locks were cut and she was gone. Because it was the garage there was a single item limit rider (that i wasnt aware of) which made it not worthwhile to make an insurance claim. Chris King...

    show us your BEER BIKE

    We built this from a Worksman at our shop, it holds a keg and a CO2 tank and is fully functional. Even for the Worksman though we're pushing the limit on what the tires can hold up to !!

    I name this Spaceliner "Dorothy"

    Had some time this past week. Base coat is Cherry Red, then 3 coats of fine red glitter followed by 2 coats of sliver glitter in clearcoat. I also hit the fork cap and the rear fender with gloss black. Unfortunately the chrome was too far gone to save. Most importantly my wife likes this...

    Bent head tube

    I used to own a Blacksheep until some scumbag ripped off my garage (and its was taken away still locked to anther bike). Budnitz ripped off James from Blacksheep's designs, plain and simple. The Blacksheep was a thing of beauty and worth every penny I invested. One day it will come back to me.

    This is just insane......

    From Youtube: "POV of Bike Base Jump off Cliff Road!. Check out this incredible point-of-view footage of a failed bike base jump from the Bolivian Death Road. Injuries suffered included fractures in his forearm and cut tendons in his knee." Survived but got pretty messed up.
