"The Experiment!"

Finally got time to pick up my frame that was 2 degrees deraked by Chris "Caveman" from Belgium.
With sticks and straws a mockup was created! This wasn't meant to become a seriously driven bike, but seeing this mockup, I'm not too sure on that! I'll have to grow a money tree I guess...engines, tranny's and drumwheels don't come cheap in these lands... Or offer up the full dresser!??

That stance looks killer! and according to Chris's measurements, it's gonna have good handling!


Subtle

Dr.Phil would have his handsful with this character!

I was flipping thru an old In the wind mag, and suddenly saw this pic... That's probably the owner of this previously posted bike

Leftovers

bike is totally built up from different parts, probably leftovers, and dumped in a wishbone frame. The baddest part must be that aweful rear fender and taillight aimed at the skies!
scan from "In the wind" #7, no name, no title

Cartooned!

Capt. Cal is making an animated movie for his senior thesis 3d animation, Rene (from Dago's speed shop) and myself won the contest to have ourselves made in 3D as part of the biker crew where the story is about! Calvin posted these yesterday and I nearly fell of my seat!!! This is so f*ckin awesome!

Check out how his movie "the Requiem Ride" evolves here: http://therequiemride.blogspot.com/





According to Cal, my bike was very difficult to make, especially the Frank's fender, all the details are amazing, like the stickers on the battery cover, the patches on my jacket down to the glasses I'm wearing!
 Here are some more of the bike itself


Rene's low early shovel
and some other movie stars!
 

I"m really honered to be a part of this! Can't wait to see the progress and all hands down for the Captain!
