    I hadn't ridden this bike in a while so I decided to take it out for today's ride. Ended up mostly being a photo shoot for the bike. Probably my most iconic bike and the one most associated with me. I'm guessing I built this 8 years ago.

    Always loved that bike Randy, my favorite themed part has got to be the tires though, they really make the bike the bike in my opinion. :)

    Hey thanks guys. I'm flattered that you can remember and associate my name with my bikes. Maybe it's because I constantly flood every nook and cranny of the internet with them :lol:

    For anyone who hasn't yet seen this bike here's some older pics...

    Original tire I had on it was no more than a glorified innertube. Didn't like riding on it so I swapped it with something bigger yet still slick.
