Know tons of people who ride rigids, especially out west. If you know their limits it's not that big a deal.

How long did it take them to assemble that thing, like two days?



"Hey, Rick, just pull that there tank off the shelf behind you and throw a motor in that frame I ordered. Heh, everyone's gonna think we built this thing, heh..."



Custom, my a$$. (Sorry, I meant "Kustom.")

I'm sure they all have very good chiropractors to. And by 'limits' you must mean, 3 blocks to the corner bar - 3 blocks back.

Why don't they use car tires on it like the Gold Wingers? It works for them.

Two more problems noted:



1. No Flying Eyeball

2. Von Dutch is very, very dead.

I mix mine with lilac scented Raid to keep the bugs out. Chicks dig it.

Like the time we made Athens Greece, me and the whole line crew got wasted on Ouzo and 10mg valiums. My buddy Naranjo woke up the next morning with the worst tatoo I'd ever seen, it was a skull with wings, wearing the classic Beenie & Cecil beenie with the prop on it.



Lucky for me right before we got to the tatoo parlor I fell off a 10 foot wall next to the train yard and landed in the biggest pile of dog crap I'd ever seen. It broke my fall. Next morning I woke up and found my way back to fleet landing. Got on a liberty boat headed for the Indy covered in bruises and dog *****. Didn't know what hit me.



Typical evening on liberty. That next evening we burnt down Athens like Vikings. The Indy got kicked out of Greece for good.



The sea stories could just go on and on...

Hear that? That's Dutch rolling in his grave.

Again.

When I was on Indy...



Anyway, we anchored in the lovely harbor of Piraeus and I spent all my time in Glifada.



Getting to the point, I think we sailed just before the harbor caught fire. Not the waterfront, mind you, but the water itself!



Back on thread: If nobody told you who made this bike, how the heck could you tell? As mentioned above, you could make it yourself from a catalog.
