On Custom Bikes, in the Village

Custom Bike, nyc Photo by myself at Sullivan and West 3rd Streets, in the Village.

Two fellas discussed an unusual custom bike, Tuesday afternoon. The seat is about five feet off the ground (!).

The fellow wearing the shades had custom made the frame. His buddy was asking about how to get onto the bike. Apparently the bike's owner hasn't had an accident (yet). 'I count on other people to avoid me', he confessed.

And if about to crash? 'I grab onto the nearest trash can.' Aha.
  Custom Bike, nyc Yes, the bike works!

Custom Bike, nyc The friend tried but failed to get on the bike. Alas, too high a climb!

It is more something to use in a circus act! I wouldn't dare to get a ride on it.
