Show of your bike by brand or model.
Man, your bike is really cool and has personality that ours will never have.
We do feel pretty lucky to have our New Belgium cruisers. Both bikes have a pretty cool story to them.
Back in February my folks, wife, kids, and I had just returned home in a snowstorm from picking up a barn-find Murray in Hartford, WI. Of course the first thing to do after a long drive in the snow to get a bike is to check CL for more bikes. I saw the ad for the Electra Fat Tire that was just over the state line and only about a 30-minute drive. The price was an absolute STEAL. I called up Dad to tell him about the ad and he says "I just got off the phone with the guy. I'm picking it up in the morning. Can I borrow your Suburban?" Beat to a cool bike by my own Dad! The next morning he had it at home and it was awesome. I had to have a Fat Tire bike of my own.
Fast forward to July and my wife and I have moved the family to Colorado. We had stopped at New Belgium in Fort Collins on the way to our new home. We had some beer, picked up a few souvenirs, and I secretly wished that I could work at this cool place. Anyway, I found out about the bike giveaway and my wife and I started signing up every morning. About a week after we first signed up to win, we were driving home from Durango after being in a cool bike shop and my wife says "I want to win a bike". Next morning she received an e-mail from New Belgium that she was the bike winner from the previous day's drawing! NO WAY! A week later the bike was here and I had my Fat Tire cruiser.

My 1948 Roadmaster pressed into Grocery Getter Duty...
A properly equipped bicycle with Canadian Beer up Front and Chinese Food in the rear...
In Michigan we have returnables...exactly $3.60 worth shown here at $0.10/bottle.
So, you're saying there are non-beer bikes?! Oh, yeah, 20lb glue-on track fixies.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
Both just for show in Eureka Springs Arkansas.
"The high winds and a couple of big bumps in the sidewalk destroyed it before I got home that night."
That's a great excuse. I may have to use it when I show up home with a crashed bike on pub night.
This is our yard art right now, waiting on customizing, a trailmate, looks like yours. Maybe it should get a beer theme.
I love those Fat Tire cruisers, but being a Californian, I couldn't legally enter the contest to win one. And to make matters worse, Joe's Crab Shack in Oceanside uses a couple of em for decor in their bar and dining areas.
I ended up adding a Fat Tire cap as a bar end:
(the other one has a Newcastle cap.)
I also have a Fat Tire bottle opener that I need to stick on there somewhere.
