    Hop Shop has been working hard to present the newest Finx Kruiser: "El Caballo Del Diablo" The ride sports a set of 57 chevrolet fender skirts, a 144 spoke rim, and a working flame thrower! Built out of a men's and women's western flyer, this kruiser sits about an inch off the ground and weighs a good 75 lbs. Props to Jalopy Jim for the awesome lettering, Blackphantom for naming the ride, Highwheelerboy25 for unknowingly donating the seat, and Smoopy for letting me slack off at work in order to get it done. Enjoy.

    There are SO many cool things on this bike to look at, that both of my eyes slid into one socket!
    Yet another work of bicycle artistry! I truly like the 'brown fade to black' paint technique on the skirts.

    Beautiful, just watch out for potholes.. :roll:

    Cheers,
    Dr. T

    Bike: Super cool, Confederate flags: not so much.
    The brake levers down by the stem are a nice touch.
