HOT BIKE: WHAT’S THE STORY BE­HIND THIS BIKE?

F BOMB BAG­GERS: I’m a big fan of the old nos­tal­gic looks from the ’50s and ’60s and fig­ured I’d try my best to get a newer bike to look old. I guess it’s a mat­ter of try­ing to make it look both like an old-school chop­per and a bag­ger. It starts with the old-school look to­wards the front, and you get a taste of new school when it gets to the back with the Black La­bel bag setup. HB: WHAT’S YOUR FA­VORITE PART? FBB: I got to say the coolest parts of this bike are the ex­haust, killer art­work by Fa­mous Dave, and that big hon­key spoke wheel. I al­ways be­lieve less is more when it comes to the big-wheel bag­gers. We are al­ready get­ting shit and haters left and right, so I al­ways try to make them clean and sim­ple. I think the big­gest com­pli­ment is when an older rider comes up to me and says I’m not a fan of this big-wheel shit but I dig this bike. An­other touch was just adding a sim­ple red stripe on the front wheel that re­ally peeks it out. When it was fi­nally but­toned up I hit up Brian at Sin­is­ter and told him to do it old school, and it couldn’t have come out bet­ter—just the clean, sim­ple, ’50s look. A seat should never stick out on a bike; it should just per­fectly blend in with the whole bike, and this one did it.

HB: WHAT’S THE MOST CHAL­LENG­ING PART OF THE BUILD?

FBB: Re­ally, with it be­ing a non-fair­ing bike, it keeps it on the easy side. If any­thing, just hop­ing the scheme was go­ing to work was the big­gest ques­tion. Once peo­ple started stop­ping by the shop and drop­ping the “F bomb” when see­ing it we knew it was good to go.
