Scraper Bikes

The scraper bike movement was born in Oakland, California a couple of years ago under the iniative of Tyrone Stevenson Jr. The idea is to customize your bike with simple materials such as foil, tape, recycled boxes and cans, and spray paint, and in making it look like it has rims. It's had a positive effect on the community in Oakland, keeping kids out of troubles, and encouraging their creativity. I don't know about you, but I'm working on rims tonight!
