This was shot in and around Eastern Market in Detroit, MI. I wanted to highlight some of the murals there. This doesn't even scratch the surface of some of the amazing work in the area.


I really have to jump across the river some Monday night this summer and experience first hand the backstreets of the "D". Great build!!

Man, that video sort of satisfied a desire of mine since early on...Wanting to ride this thing!
Most everyone here seems to start with ballooner, muscle bike, BMX or the occasional Mt. Bike.... Never have I seen an old 70's 10 speed get transformed into a bona fide Custom like this one!
Fantastic!

Thanks. I heard last year the average number of riders for Slow Roll was between 2000 - 3000 each week. Awesome way to experience the city and see some of the great things going on. I doubt you'd be disappointed.

Fantastic!

I'm pretty excited about how nice this bike is to ride. Certainly opens up options for future designs!

Wish I could claim the originality of reconfiguring old ten speeds as my own. This design owes a huge debt to burrito bikes. That and a general stubbornness in trying to make something of the parts and pieces I had on hand.

Thanks.

Absolutely love this bike. The video rocks! I went to college in Detroit and I recognize those murals. Very cool!! Good luck, I tried to vote for your bike twice but it won't let me!

Really nice! Do you have plans for another build? I hear there's a build-off going on ;)
