"Kevin's Bike"

A wacky contraption I built just before leaving and I've been working on. First of all, it's named "Kevin's Bike" after the bicycle Kevin rides in the kid's cartoon Ed, Edd, n Eddy. It sort of looks like it right? maybe we were just drunk. still are?

Anyway, this thing is held together by nothing more than a will to survive. It's basically a flipped bmx frame, with the steering rig from this post. The seat rig is half of the fork from my first tallbike wedged in behind the kickstand plate. Wedged into that is a seatpost from an exercise bike. A bent Free Spirit fork is locked down over the rear axle, and it has one of those cool lean-back bmx seatposts, wedged into it (leaning forward). The two seatposts are connected to eachother by an old bent mtb brake with the spring removed and locked into a fully-closed position. Everything is wrapped with rope and old intertubes for extra strength.

This bike is a WHEELIE MACHINE. It's seat is behind the rear axle, so you have to lean forward and constantly correct tiny wheelies. Great fun!!!!

Kevin is seen here, on his bike, totally killing at whiplash.
