Hello from Germany!

What do you think of this one?

Everything bended, sawn and draged by HAND!

I started designing the bike with an CAD construction program on my computer.
After that I converted all measurements and cut out some templates out of an old desk top.
Then I started heating the 50mm (1.9685 inch) pipes and pulled them over the wooden templates. The same procedure with 25.. (0.9843 inch) pipes of the rear end.
Later I started carving out the the 4 iron cross out of 10mm steal, by HAND! Really hard work...

Everthing was done by hand...

There a still some cool details missing at the bar and some ornaments.

I have sprayed the whole frame, fork and bar with salt acid, to get a nice rat and rusty look.
Some other parts, for example the spikes and the attachment for the bar are painted matt black.

This thing rides really good, even if it doesn't look that comfortable...

But it's really ......... At the first ride I pierced my kneecap with one of the thorns... So therefore it got it's name "Suicidal Tendencies"!

Thx guys.
Yes, that's a nice idea. In Germany there is a saying: "Wer rastet, der rostet." I think it would fit great...

Reminds me of the movie Slapshot when Ned sees the bus driver beating on the bus with a sledghammer and says, "Walt, what are you doing?", and Walt says, "Makin' it look mean!!!" That's a good thing, I love it.

Thanks ;-)
Got too much ideas...I think there will be something really "...-kicking" about to be ready for the pedestrian zone ;-)
