ONE OF THOSE PIMP-MY-RIDE-STORIES

A couple of years ago, I found an old but efficient folding bike in my backyard. Instantly I started to make drafts in my mind, how to pimp this thing by using almost the original material.

I started cutting it into pieces then and welding them to one piece again on different positions. I designed and manufactured a seat from fiber glass and epoxy and used my sewing skills to fabricate the leather cover. Added some pimp details like skull-shaped pedals and eagle-printed grips and stored it in front of my apartment on the third floor to keep correcting the small deficits from time to time.
Almost ready for the maiden trip…it was gone. Some F….r stole it.

If you see this bike somewhere, please write me a message. It must be propably riding around Frankfurt.

A video of the process is in the cut…soon.
