“My name is Willem Willemsen, 48-years old and I’m from the Netherlands (West coast). My bike project started about 2 years ago, after I strolled around on the Internet. I used to ride motorcycles, but because of the lack of space and funds, I was looking out for some worthy replacement.
And, that’s where the bikes stepped in. So, I started the project together with a colleague of mine (who worked in our company’s workshop). We used a lot of scrap metal and second-hand bike parts.
The result was this 10′ long lowrider which weighs around 90-100 lbs. It has a 3-speed SRAM coasterhub,a 28″ front wheel and a 26″ 80 mm wide rear wheel. That’s the story in a nutshell.”
