Hi Steve,

I guess it kinda just happened. When my buddy started riding the first fat bike from Surley or Salsa I thought they were silly but they worked great for him as he was a big guy. Then in the Winter of 13 I bought a Trek Farley fat bike and well I fell in love with the bike. I even built a 3" wide set of wheels for the bike. Since I ride for fun and I don't try to be the fastest they work great for me. I just like coming back from a ride with a big ass grin on my face. Eight years later I still have that grin and it's funny that all of sudden I am faster then I used to be on a skinny tire bike.

Here is my fat road bike.

To say I am in love with your car and the color combination would be an understatement. There are colors that just work and the color you picked is just beautiful.

So do you think you will have the car complete for Luft 7 as this car would be very well received at the show.

Thanks Marcs !! ... Loving the convertible

Ha !! Marty, seriously ... a 'fat road bike' .. that thing is awesome !! Love the green

Cant figure out if thats a bike shop or your place LMAO

Thanks buddy, its nice when a vision starts to come together and and you realize you got it right. Cant wait for this to get some of the silver trim and the side stripe package that will tie it altogether

That show isn't too far from me, I just might make that !

Cheers
Steve

Yep, it's my garage and it looks a little different now as I finally organized the peg board wall.

Here is the finished bike with the "Joker Theme" and I think I have put about 800 miles on it since i finished it.




And I am hoping that you bring you car to the Indy Show as I so want to see it in person. My plan is to drive my Cayman to the show with Mike as it gets the best gas mileage out of all of my cars. Who new a 400hp Cayman would get 28 mpg on the highway.

Unfortunately Steve,

I think he's right you need one of these bikes and maybe you need one of these Car Bones Roof Racks

STAG RACK or SeaSucker
