    I built this bike 14 years ago, last Sept. I rode it to the Mackinac Bridge 303 miles. Its heavy with all the bells and horns, but I made it up all the hills.

    1995 I blew up 3 rear wheels over the years


    I built my first Tallbike in 1964 when I was a 14 year old. It's a real piece of crap made out of an english Dunelt bicycle flipped upsidedown.

    I've made a couple of tall bikes - but they are a bit different to most.

    First was this one:
