Here are some images of an absolutely ridiculous cruiser. With an Easy Rider aesthetic, it’s shape is so exaggerated that you just simply have to love it. Or at least I have to – it attracted my attention whilst I was on the stand at Bespoked.
To be honest, the bike couldn’t fail to attract attention. The handlebars seem to be about five and a half feet off the deck and I could see it approaching from about 3 miles away (even though the view from Temple Meads station is restricted by local buildings). It was deftly ridden into the parking area and given a brief tour of the cobbles before coming to rest in one of the few remaining toastrack spaces. The rust is just surface – I’ve been assured – and make him an offer and it might just be yours.
The owner of the bike is quite keen to find out a little more about it – age, manufacturer, that type of thing – and will be monitoring these pages to see if you can help. Bike? Art? Spirit of the 60s? You be the judge. Avid academics of cycling history……..over to you.
