Hey Ya'll,

Here is a peak at my latest creation. Before and after.

Before



After:





It get's better mileage than a Prius, it's been lowered for more cool, and less drag.

That's a nice looking bike there. I wish I had the space/time to do something like that, I would so make it an EV. It would be a really fun EV to ride around town.

This one was electric, I used it for my local errands, but alas it was stolen. Worst part is that the bike was my art, and it's really hard having your art stolen.

O ver nice, I like the green fuzz all over it.

Where do you get those tires from? Do you just salvage those chopper bicycles from the store?

The Green Fuzzy Chopper was a Schwinn Sting-Ray Chopper with a stretched frame, custom seat, extended forks, and it glowed at night too. The fur was backlit with electrolumenescent tape, the idea was cool, but it wasn't bright enough to really pop except in a very dark garage.

That's too bad. I wish I could have been there when you described it to the police.
