The rv is more bitchin than the bike
that frame + adding 8-10+ motorcycle batteries parallel to the frame(looking from the top down) due to how thin they are and an electric motor would be fun and green

I really don't think "bitchin" is the right choice of words, but there is a definition on dictionary.com:

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bitchin 

This is a cool instructable,but as this is a family site i have flagged it as innapropriate (i would very much appreciate a name change)

Nice bike but I LOVE the RV ! Can you please e-mail me with the make model and year of that RV ? I have been looking for a year for one of those and I have no idea what kind it is ! aaronanalog@yahoo.com
nice
sweet van
my highschool has that same pipe bender
NO cussing, but other than that, this is cool
why not it's a bitchin ride. i mean damn man.
very true, but you could still use nice words, like awesome, or cool
no; i think those words were just the right ones for the job.
Ok, if that is what you want to say, you can
thank you for accepting me the way i am. 8>)

nice work. for your next project please make a pick up truck bike with a big carrying part or parts on the back.
dude strap a 2 cycle to that bitch, fuck peddling, its bad tho without that stuff
strap a 2 cycle to your La Z Boy recliner, ride around in a circle inside your garage, with the door closed.
a support running up from the bottom bend and into the upper flat bar would keep the style and give great support as well as making a space to mount a handy attatchment like twin jet enginge or a water bottle

I have a question about pipe bending. When i tried to do it,the pipe collapsed ,even with sand inside it. How can you reach good bend without distortion ?
you can get pipe bending springs that fit inside the pipe, and hold it circular. you also need to apply constant, even heat, from a gas welder, preferably.
when you say bitchin ride do you mean the bike or the van
that bus is awesome
the frame looks like it needs a LOT more support, it's just waiting to be broken. i'm assuming you're not a bike builder, but it looks like it needs more structural support.

what do you do when you go over a bump?
Yeah, the bike is nice and all, but the UltraVan really is more distracting. :) -Ted

yahh i'm diggin the very cool chopped bike; i even like the lil' pink rim up front, because funny is almost allways a good thing.... but i agree.... i wanna know more about the lime green camper.
bigpinecone8 years ago
the front wheel looks kinda funny, it's pink...
if he does a good job of blending from the pink on the back to the blue in the middle, then back to pink, it'd look pretty bad-ass...
mikeybhang8 years ago
What about the big lime camper in the backgraound? Gotta be a story there!
what kind of pipe are you using there?
i'd imagine d.o.m. tubing
kellusion8 years ago
Looks great. a word of warning though: I'm pretty sure welding anything with paint on it is bad for your lungs...
That looks awesome. What type of welder did you use for the welds?
