Default Custom frames/eye candy

Ok I had nothing to do and looked through the bike builders in the Portland area. Then I started to think of a dream bike. Now this bike would not be for performance but a work of rideable(sp?) art. For my money Vanilla bikes and M.A.P. bike have pics of some of the best looking bikes out there. I will note that i like the lugged frames/forks for looks.

What are other frame builders that make great looking frames? Or works of eye candy?

FYI I think I have my dream fixie all figured out, now I just need the $$$$ to get it done. Guess I better get a second job

Cool Check out this ride...

Jonathan did an article on this guy's bikes... Neal Fegan of montana transit authority

Image links to my photo last thursday photo set

Neil and one of his head turning bikes...


My only changes to that bike (besides the rider), add retroreflective film and a lot of lights.

Now, if I can only score that winning lottery number...
