Class bikes! I had the small blue version of the chopper, think it was called a tomahawk. Had a grifter later on too it weighed about two tonne. Use to love putting and old rola cola can between the wheel and the back brake to make it sound like a motorbike! Ah the eighties!

Its not too hard to chrome your own stuff, all you need is a car bat and the right liquid. Not sure what it is but im sure there is something about it on ubbertube...


Uncertainty or not knowing causes depression, Im happy because I know I'm going to die one day!
