This bike looks like if Gargamel put an evil curse on one of the little smurfs that made him a lot bigger and bike shaped.
If I had this sweet ride I would probs match it with this T-Shirt by my favourite designers, PAM:Thanks to my sweet soon to be sister in law, REN! You rule!

Some may call the colour of this bike Tan. Others Caramel, Honey, Gold even. I'd say it's more of a poo colour.
This was spotto'd on Anzac Day holiday. We had been walking for a good 2hrs by this time, and this was the first bmx we saw. WTF Melbourne?
Has everyone laid their bmx to rest now fixed gear bikes are de jour?
I give props to all rad bikes, but bmx is automatically so much radder than anything else.
Maybe someone should make a ad like that where's the beef? lady, except make it where's the bmx?

I just like the checker board patterning on the seat.
If I was going to ride a bike of this style, it would most definitely look like this;

NOW. Let me set one thing straight. Usually I do not condone motors on bikes.
Motorbikes are not my style and Vespas make me dry retch.
But this is our friend Damo's sick beast and he built it all himself. Big ups my man!
This bike has a 70cc 2-stroke motor. The frame is a original crusier frame. It is HEAVY as fuck.
Believe me, I have carried it down a flight of stairs. Yes. I know I also am a beast.
It's based on old school Boardtracker bikes that have had a strong following since the 60s' (who knew?)

Or dudes that are quite obsessed with them here
Top speed is 55kph, which is more than enough to CAIN yourself. Hell I can injure myself at like 10kph.
One day... I may just be courageous enough to have a spin. Full leather suit neccessary, so it will have to wait at least until winter. Maybe when hell freezes over.
Check out the chromey goodness... and the double chain, whoa well that's off the chain!
Dear Damo, you are one of my favourite dudes. When I see your bike it reminds me of this scene from Pulp Fiction:

He buys beers for Loz when she does an exceptional job at cleaning their house. I buy beers for him when he fixes my bike. Then we all drink the beers, ride the bikes and make the house messy again. It's a win/win/win situation.
Nick's GF is riding.
Every weekend: US "Hey Nick what you doing this weekend?" HIM: "Riding"
He competes in downhill mountain bike riding and is fully EXTREME.
He's in hospital at the moment with a lacerated kidney, punctured lung and a few broken ribs.
He sustained these painful injuries after jumping off a 30ft drop on the weekend. There is no footage of the actual accident, however this is Nick on another killer stack.
Our thoughts are with you dude...
Get well soon Nick!

Whatcha talkin bout Willis?
Sometimes I wish that I had a catchphrase.
The thing that first caught my eye about this little beauty was the those Three Spoke Mags. They are tough.
Gary Coleman is not tough. After his success as a child actor he sued his parents and former manager over his $3.8 million trust fund.
He won a almost $1.3 mil in 93 then filed for bankrupcy 6 years later... Way to Go Gary!

This road bike is fresh as. Dancelli ey? Does that mean that you dance on this bike while you ride? I mean, I do that all the time on my bike, but I would assume that this talent would be much harder to master on skinny wheels.
My hat goes off to you good sir.
Thanks to my mate Nick for the pic!
