    Nice article, great pics....the [aint, fenders, and lights look incredible. It's a shame (if hardly a surprise) that there's no pics of anyone riding the "bike," though.

    So cool what a master peace ️. Clyde & his guys did a killer job . He definitely need some pics with a hot little hippy chick cruising it on the beach for the full effect.

    WOW! That makes your imagination run wild...I can see a "Herbie" in the future...What other cars can be created? How about a chopped top 32 Ford..riding from the rumble seat!

    That thing is sweet. I had imagined making a Christine bike just like that with fins on both sides and dual headlights if I ever had tons of money for it. Also maybe 4 wheeled.

    That was a funny thing....it created that start sate for me before I was able to set the overall date settings for the forum. I just left it that way. :bigsmile:

    I like to think of that one as the perfect storm.

    The bike itself is really what is responsible for the views that it got.

    I think the stats show that 96% of the views were due to people sharing it.

    The best part is all of the folks who have contacted Clyde thinking that a completely hand fabricated bike would be affordable. :bigsmile:

    Yea, $150 Malwart bikes have people thinking way off base for something that involved.

    I have been thinking about a VW bus along these lines in fiberglass, but I'd have to get $1,000 for the fiberglass body. Even though people would love to have a cool novelty bike, I don't think many people (if any) would actually spend that much.
