Old-school 550 Cord Motorcycle "Getback Whip"

About: Bang...

There's a history behind these old-school biker or "getback" whips. Back in the day, you'd see bikers sporting whips - hanging from their clutch or brake levers as they rode. The leather whips were usually made from the biker's club colors - to display their colors and for club recognition. But the whips were a whole lot more than just leather club colors. A biker whip could be quickly released and used "in case of emergency."

Complete instructions to making your own "Getback Whip" will follow in a few days, the instructions are fun, and very simplistic, i'll show the whip completed with a clasp for your clutch or brake lever, and skull beads on the end of the whip.
