    The idea for the Batmobile bike came from my buddy Octavio Salto , He bought a store bought Schwinn Hurricane and when we changed the bars and wheel set we bounced around Ideas of making a Batmobile bike. he just really wanted to black it out and throw some bat emblems on it , well we never did it, and finished our beers and went on a cruise. Since then I have wanted to do the batbike , I originally wanted to base it off the 1989 Michael Keaton batman batmobile , but I could never find the right frame or do it any justice. I then found this spaceliner frame and after already doing a spaceliner , I felt like I could do whatever I wanted to it , I pondered Ideas then, POW! , it just clicked. A 1960's spaceliner is the perfect bike to do the 1966 Batmobile theme on. THANKS for all the positive feedback

    These things look cool. How are you cutting your parts? They look very smooth and consistent.

    I need bolts, paint , a neck, I am undecided on rims and tire combo, I like the dyno slicks on there. I have a set of chrome rims and a set of rims I was gonna paint black the 66 batmbile had chrome rims but I think the black ones will be better what do you think. Here is a little mock up
