Ghost House Chopper: Bloomington, IN

This beast was made my buddy Edwin up Bloomington, IN. The design is just beautiful, however the bottom bracket shell is currently half-disconnected from the rest of the bike. Almost custom fabricated!!

Crazy Tallbike in Madison

Spotted this gorilla-hanger style tallbike rolling down the street in Madison, WI. You can't see it very good in the pictures, but it actually has a left-side-to-right-side double chain setup and gears.

Brakeless Fixie Tallbike

What a death trap. Seen and ridden in Knoxville, was this thing. I think what made it difficult is the gear ratio. I drunkenly tried to do a trackstand and busted my ass. But Johnathan rode it for the whole Freedom Thighs ride somehow and he could do a trackstand so it is possible. Note the fancy hand-laced wheels.

The mortar exploded on the frist try of this.

How does he fucking do it?

Wooden Handlebars

Why? I don't know. (same house)


At the same house in TN. Appearently those are old battery boxes.

Rotting in the Yard

Spotted these in the backyard of house in Knoxville, TN where a bunch of the bike collective kids live. Appearently these are mostly retired due jousting damage, but you'll notice the before and after pictures. Somebody was working of these while we on our ride.

Bike Chair

I saw a few nice seats using the same concept in a shop in Gainesville.  Baby House needed a chair so I threw this together.  It was not a big hit considering it hurts your ass and you need decent balance just to sit in it.

Unfinished Chopper

I started this one drunk afternoon.  Gave up when I realized we didn't have a back wheel that would fit, a headset that would fit, a seatpost that would fit, or a drill.  Oh well.

Super Tall Bike and Chopper in Ft. Collins.

My friend, Lorrie, saw these in Fort Collins, Colorado. Hella sexy. Note, the tallbike has a flat. Note, also, that I cannot figure out how they mount these things.

The Thing

Quickly assembled. Poorly assembled. Dangerous to ride. Akward to ride. Who wouldn't want one? It's actually really comfortable with regular handlebars on it. Janky, though. Made by Ant in one night

Ward's Bike Pile

Duane's Bikes

Duane has been cranking out the silly little bikes for years at the Flying Monkey Arts Center in Huntsville, AL. He's really got it down to an art. I been on quite a few of them, and they ride pretty well. The second to last one is my favorite. Note the effort put into giving it hand brakes and two speeds. Also, the fenders are made of flippers.

Orlando Tallbike

I haven't been able to upload any pictures for a while, so when I was this on facebook I jumped on it. I rode this bike down in orlando last winter. 24 in" wheels, and a chunk of a derailuer welded on to get the slack out of the chain. Ratty!
